APA provides new research on same-sex marriage

A group of psychologists believe states and the federal government should legalize same-sex marriage. The American Psychological Association points to new research showing that marriage provides same-sex couples with the same sense of security, support and validation as it does for straight couples. But the National Organization for Marriage opposes same-sex marriage. That group claims there's no evidence to support the psychological association's findings.
