Summary or Abstract : The purpose of this study was to compare select personality characteristics of gay male couples choosing to become parents through adoption in comparison to gay male couples choosing not to become parents. Twenty-five Parenting couples (50 subjects) and twenty-five Non-Parenting couples (50 subjects) from across the United States were surveyed using the Edward Personal Preference Schedule and the Rotters Internal-External Locus of Control Scale. Subjects were given a packet containing these instruments and a Demographic Questionnaire to obtain information on age, ethnicity, religious affiliation, annual household income, number of siblings, birth order, adoption history, relationship length, and the sex, current age, age when adopted and ethnicity of any children adopted. Eleven Parenting couples (21 subjects) and ten gay male Non-Parenting couples (20 subjects) completed and returned the materials. The aim of this study was to gain descriptive data of personality traits of gay males choosing to bring children into their family and gay males choosing not to become parents. Data was analyzed according to mean scores representing personality traits measured by the EPPS for Parenting and Non-Parenting groups using the t-test procedure. This analysis indicated that gay male Parenting couples had higher a mean on the trait of Order and Succorance while Non-Parenting couples had higher means on the traits of Change, Exhibition, and Autonomy. According to demographic data from the samples used in this study the partners in a typical gay male Parenting couple are white, 36 years of age, has a religious affiliation, earns an annual household income over 100,000 dollars, has two or more siblings, is a middle child, is likely to have a history of adoption in the family and has been in their relationship longer than ten years. The typical Non-Parenting gay male couple is also white, 36 years old, has no religious affiliation, earns an annual household income between 61,000 and 80,000 dollars, has two or more siblings, is the last born, has no history of adoption in the family and has been in the relationship between 4 and 10 years. There was no significant difference between the groups on scores for the Rotter I.E. Scale..
