Same sex families
The law now acknowledges the reality of modern family life and the vital role played by same-sex couples looking after children. Recent changes in the law mean that gay and lesbian couples in an enduring relationship can now be recognised as legal parents of children.

When it comes to parenting, however, the challenges faced will be very much the same, whether you are same-sex parents or not.
That said, there might be additional concerns for same-sex parents as they can face problems regarding being accepted into society, and feeling supported.
If you are in a same-sex relationship but have children from a previous heterosexual relationship, you might have concerns about losing contact or fear that the courts will look favourably towards heterosexual parents. If you had children through donor insemination you might have the additional worry later in life when your children might start to wonder who their donor father is.
