Canada Judge Rules Having 2 Dads, 1 Mom in Best Interest of Child

Anugrah Kumar – June 16, 2018

A judge in Canada has declared two men and one woman in a polyamorous relationship to be the legal parents of a child, saying having three parents is in the child’s best interests.

“The relationship has been a stable one and has been ongoing since June 2015. None of the partners in this relationship is married and, while the identity of the mother is clear, the biological father of the child is unknown,” Justice Robert Fowler of the Newfoundland and Labrador Supreme Court said, according to Financial Post.

The judge didn’t ask for a paternity test to be taken.

“Although outside the traditional family model, (the relationship) provides a safe and nurturing environment,” Fowler said in the decision.
