Skip to comments.Lesbian parents 'betrayed' by gay father demanding to see his son
Posted on 02/08/2012 10:27:28 AM PST by massmike
A two-year-old boy with "three parents" - his lesbian mother, her partner and a gay father - is at the centre of an Appeal Court test case on the status of "alternative" families.
The mother says she made a pact with the father during a restaurant meeting before the boy was conceived that she and her lover would fill the role of "primary parents" within a "nuclear family" and that he would not stand on his paternal rights.
But now she and her partner say they feel "bitter and betrayed" after the father - a former close friend who attended the birth and held the new-born baby in his arms - demanded overnight and holiday contact with his biological son.
All three parents are highly-paid professionals living in central London and the father, in his 40s, insists he was always far more than a mere sperm donor and he wants to play a full paternal role in the life of the only child he is every likely to have.
The father was formerly in a "marriage of convenience" with the mother, although they are now divorced, and three Appeal Court judges are being asked to rule on whether the little boy would be best off with "three parents and two homes".

Screwed up adults and a child involved, always a bad thing.
Will all three parents be distraught if the child grows up straight?

That’s going to be one screwed up kid, right there...
“A pact made in a restaurant.” Did they write on a Cocktail Napkin like Spinal Tap?
Regardless that they are homosexuals a man is in the birth room, holds his child with in minutes and it never occurred to all of them he wouldn’t become attached.
I would like to ask for prayers for a 2nd cousin just born into this world, a beautiful baby girl.
I have two cousins who are homosexual. The female “got married”, her partner was inseminated by my other cousin, the male the females brother, so the baby would have a genetic link to her (my cousin) mother.
Even writing this, it sounds like a horror film.
This innocent baby will really need protection.
“Marriage of convenience?” Sounds like a sure win for the father unless the court wants to dispense with centuries of common law.
Why a marriage under the circumstances? Sounds like insurance fraud, tax fraud or immigration fraud to me.
I'm afraid for the kid that the only thing "straight" in his life will be the jacket he's eventually put in......
Sending my most sincere prayers for the well-being of that innocent baby.
I’m sure liberals are right and this arrangement is just as good as two regular parents, in fact even better, and the child will in no way be influenced by the homosexuality of its three parents. /s
Isn’t it shameful what society has allowed simply because the left is a pain in the rear, without any honest study of what is good or bad for children?
Sad story but a good illustration of the consequences of violating God’s created order.
yes I believe they will.
This turns my stomach! The queers should not be able to raise kids.
Prayers for that precious baby girl. I read your post about three times before I even understood who is what/did what. If the situation is that confusing from the beginning, it isn’t ever going to get any easier.
That would explain why the baby was exactly 18" long at birth.
I only read what was posted cause I didn’t feel like hitting the link so I have a question. This dude says he gave more than just sperm. Well has he been giving the woman money every month to help with raising the kid? That is a very interesting question I would like answered. It is not fun having a baby but a two year old is much easier to “hang out with”. It is possible that he was not interested in seeing his son until he could communicate and potty trained.
The father’s was a turkey to get involved in this, whether or not his name is “Tom.”
-—Isnt it shameful what society has allowed simply because the left is a pain in the rear, without any honest study of what is good or bad for children?-—
Anyone who voted in favor of sodomite “marriage” should remember what Jesus said about millstones.
IMHO that would have zero to do with the fact that is is the biological father of the child.Most of the time when someone has to prove paternity there is no support or visitation until about this age so why would that make a difference in this case?
Thank you. It took me three days to figure out what they were talking about.
The whole situation is sick.
Oh, and my female cousin and her “wife” are witches, they run a coven in San Francisco (not a surprise).
My aunt and uncle are mortified, this is their grandchild in this hideous situation.
My heart breaks for the baby.
The child has ONE mother and ONE father. PERIOD.
the second she used “natural” conception or even used direct sperm “donor” where the father is known without any legal walls, then the father did not give up any rights.
Remember he IS obligated to pay child support too.
The female fetish sex partner is just superfluous to the parents.
religion is not required here.
It is simply a demonstration of how homosexuallity is unreasonable and illogical. It also shows how there is no positive to permiting homosexuality to have standing in a child rearing situation.
Society has zero benefit in rewarding homosexual conduct.
The law of the land, to best benefit society, is to have ONE father and ONE mother. The left uses the ANY two “loving parents”. (loving what exactly?)
Not criticising the religious perspective. However, in the public debate the use of mere religion to oppose this dangerous agenda simply conceeds the side of common sense and logic to the deviants.
(guide by faith but use logic and reason to demolish the opposition)
Not sure how it works in England - but here in America that sort of idiocy has absolutely NO BASIS IN LAW.
A man cannot be absolved of his parental responsibilities by the mother.
The obligation is between the child and the father - and the mother cannot unilaterally remove that obligation to the child by the father.
Guys held for paternity payments who say “She said that she (and possibly her lesbian partner) wanted to be raise the child without me and didn’t require any support!” really needed to know this.
“But now she and her partner say they feel “bitter and betrayed””
Bitter and betrayed Lesbians, now there is something new.
BTW note how there was a marriage of convenience.
IOW this negates the homosexual argument of “two loving people”. This marriage of convenience stands with the fact there is no “love test” under the law. One male married a female. A child was born. That is why society rewards marriage and not how one has sex.
In a nutshell, stripping all the extraneous nonsense away, a married couple have a child. This legitimate biological child of both parents has the already established legal right to a relationship with, and support of, both parents, whether or not the parents later divorce. Both parents, whether divorced from, or still married to each other, have rights and responsibilities where the child is concerned. Neither parent can unilaterally abrogate the rights of the other. My best guess is the judge is very likely to follow the law in this case, even a judge with an agenda. Father and mother will share custody, father and mother will provide support.
the issue the judge is going to decide is whether the female “fetish sex” partner of the wife has standing in the case.
As for the father, it is a he said/ she said contest.
