Help needed for a university project


I'm a university student in the UK doing a project about same sex families for my anthropology course. As anthropology's aim in general is to study human interaction and to learn to understand people from their own perspective - thus in my project, I'm trying to see family structures in families where there are two mothers or two fathers instead of having one of each, and how or if they differ from other family structures. It would be of great help if you could answer a few questions either by replying to this post or sending me a private message.

1. Your age range: under 20, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, over 50

2. What method are you using/considering/have used to have children? (ie. conceiving, adoption, fostering) Did you consider other ways?

3. Why did you choose this particular method? Why did you prefer it to the others?

Thank you!
