it's my understanding that in a Bahai marriage, the consent of the  
parents is a very important requirement. My question is, for the  
purposes of marriage, is it the birth/natural parents who give consent  
or it be adoptive parents / legal guardian or something else?

How would you verify or falsify such an unscientific claim? It also  
seems you are making the theoretical perfect the enemy of the  
practical good?

Even if as you claim, heterosexual monogamy has greater potential than  
homosexual monogamy. This claim is scientifically dubious though. It  
doesn't follow not to allow same sex marriage or same sex adoption.

You seem to imply heterosexual monogamy has a monopoly on stability.

You can't predict whether any given family will be stable or unstable  
based on such variables.
