Should Polyamorous Parents Raise a Child Together?

My mom watches Good Morning America, affectionately known by the acronym GMA, every day. Living away from home has made me miss it and all its ridiculousness; while the first five minutes are devoted to actual news, the rest is made up of trendy lifestyle pieces like this one, about a woman and two men in a polyamorous relationship.

Marriage Contracts: Should We Should Have Marital Term Limits?

Last year marked my ten-year wedding anniversary. I love the legal protections of marriage -- no one argues that my husband can't visit me in the hospital or shouldn't be able to pick something up for me or inherit my money. I love the psychological aspect of marriage, too -- but it's the LEGAL aspect of marriage that ups the ante societally from living together. The legal aspect is also the part that I think we should change: We should have marital term limits. ...more
