Maybe an Awkward Topic on Sexuality
I know a lot of you out there are a little weird about sex talk, but no worries- this is nothing explicit.
I know there are plenty of situations where people are raising kids. Gay couples, open couples, single parents, heterosexual... yaddah yaddah.
In a bisexual situation- let's say a married man and woman- where a girlfriend (possibly long term) gets thrown into the mix. Do you think this would be harmful to the kid? Cause confusion? If it were you, how would you explain this other woman to your kids? As an aunt/friend? Or would you just be up front with them and explain that it's not always a mommy and daddy raising kids alone?
It's something I've wondered about. I've seen some people do it well with the 'third party' loving the kid near as much as the actual parents.
I guess I'm just wondering what effect do you think it would have on the kid and how would you approach the situation?
