The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly
In this chapter Acosta explores the various kinds of parenting arrangements that the respondent families maintained. She uses the term plural parenting to describe these arrangements in order to emphasize the children’s multiple parents and the varied relationships they maintained. Respondent families had many parenting arrangements, including strong, tolerable, and struggling plural parenting. Acosta found that families formed after a same-sex relationship dissolved were more likely to maintain either a strong or tolerable plural parenting relationship than those families that formed after a heterosexual relationship dissolved.
