On­tario’s All Fam­i­lies Are Equal Act se­cures the le­gal rights of up to four

co-par­ents. Our fea­ture “Mod­ern Fam­ily” looked at how the evolv­ing pa­ram­e­ters of par­ent­hood are play­ing out in real life. Some readers were highly skep­ti­cal about this rein­ven­tion of the do­mes­tic unit…

“I won­der if any­one will bother to check in with these peo­ple, 15 years down the road, and see how well-ad­justed these kids are. Or not.” —Alex Blake

“What hap­pens if one of the par­ents wants out of the re­la­tion­ship? Do they get di­vorced?”

—Frank Scott, Face­book

“Why is the mass me­dia so com­mit­ted to de­con­struct­ing the nu­clear fam­ily?”

—@Hen­ryMakow, Twit­ter

Oth­ers were ex­u­ber­ant…

“A must-read ar­ti­cle on the chang­ing norms of rais­ing kids and fam­ily dy­nam­ics.”
