Woah Sim, hold up. The article seems to suggest that the purpose of the legislation is to recognize that more than two people can assume a parental role in a child's life -- something that doesn't seem particularly crazy, considering the way divorces oftentimes work out.
Yeah look at Ronald Reagan. My parents were disgusted with his lifestyle, but what are you going to do? I mean they were taught you get married and stay married. They didn't approve of his swinging Hollywood marriage lifestyle. Now you're married, oops, now you're not. I guess Ronnie's boys out in Cali need to change the law to accommodate that kind of lifestyle.
Good grief. This law obviously is about accommodating situations where more than two adults fulfill at least some of the responsibilities associated with parenthood. It's not about establishing three-way marriages, or encouraging broken homes, or whatever
. If you want to argue it's a perverse incentive, sure. But if I wanted knee-jerk reactions to news article titles, or "lol only in California jokes," I'd go to Yahoo News instead
