There is nothing like a liberal judiciary to set the standard;
Three-parent families may be as good as two, top judges have ruled as they backed a gay father in his ground-breaking contact dispute with the lesbian mothers of his two year-old son.
Observing that “human emotions are powerful and inconstant”, Lord Justice Thorpe said that, despite the women’s desire to create “a two-parent lesbian nuclear family”, the father was “seeking to offer a relationship of considerable value” to his son. And he told the court: “It is generally accepted that a child gains by having two parents. It does not follow from that that the addition of a third is necessarily disadvantageous”.
Why stop at four, M’lud? In fact, why bother having ANY definition of a family, after all that’s soooooo retro, don’t you think?
