Two parents of child could become 3 under bill

"It is hard enough for even two parents to agree on how to raise a child," law professor John Culhane and family scholar Elizabeth Marquardt wrote in Huffington Post in August in a plea for California lawmakers to reject SB 1476... Since so many children grow up with adults who have no biological ties to them, many observers may think that "children have already had three or more parents for quite some time," Ms. Marquardt wrote in "One Parent or Five: A Global Look at Today's New Intentional Families," released October 2011 by the Institute for American Values.
