Well I do know a gay couple that has a daughter but I have to tell you more first. I met a guy Joe he asked me out a couple times. I finally said yes. After that date we became friends he tried to want more but it wasn't there. I knew he was gay and so did his mom. She would say I don't know why he doesn't just come out! lol. Anyway knowing someone that was very openly gay I introduced him to Chris with chris having the knowledge that I thought Joe was gay. About 2 weeks later I got a call from Joe he needed to see me. He told me him and Chris we together and could I help him tell his mom. lol sure I said ... needless to say his mom was VERY happy for him. anyway 2 years later they got a surgant mother and had a baby. There daughter is the luckest girl in the world. She has more love then most kids do. She may have 2 dads but she is loved by so many. They spoil her with affection, love and material things. There daughter is almost 3 now. They are all so happy together. Honestly I don't care if you gay straight blue or green as long as you give your child love and can provide for them go for it.

exactly, so long as the couple are able to give their children love, then all's fine i feel. joe is really lucky to have such a supportive mother and a really good friend in you. you more or less became a matchmaker. grins their daughter is really lucky too. she has such doting parents. not everyone is that lucky. i feel really happy for them, hearing good things. in life, due to most people still being conservative, most tend to look upon homosexuals harshly or in a negative view. i hope as time goes, this will change. thanks so much for sharing. i hope they have a happy life.

Hello there, I only know a local lady who divorced her husband lives with her two children. Later on, she started dating my ex-colleague who is a nice lady as well. At the very beginning, they seem to be good friends as they went out altogether for holidays and shopping. After a couple of years, the rumours circulate they are indeed a couple and we accept that naturally. The children will call their mother’s friend’s first name like Lucy or Auntie Lucy, which are very simple and straightforward. They don’t live together yet for unknown reasons. But they are still going out together.

you are all so open minded. it's really good that you accepted them so naturally. if not, not all are like you guys. it's also fortunate that the children are fine with it. yes, like you said i'm sure they have their reasons for not living together. thanks for responding. i too have a friend but she's a bi. she has a boyfriend but she's also interested in girls. she confides in me sometimes though rarely as we seldom meet. thanks for sharing.
