Marriage: The Other Shoe Drops in Ontario

Some day my princess will come
Premier Kathleen Wynne pledged on Tuesday to update a law in Ontario that forces some parents to adopt their own children.

Currently, many couples — particularly those in lesbian relationships — discover only after their child is born that their birth certificate may not be as binding as they thought. That’s because provincial laws, as written, state only a birth mother and her live-in male partner or a biological male father are immediately recognized as parents.

“Ontario’s laws are outdated and do not reflect our views on who can form a family,” Wynne said, adding she’s “committed to fixing this.”

Because surrogacy has its own complex set of rules, couples who use a surrogate aren’t caught up in the same legal limbo, and instead have parenting agreements worked out before birth.
