I am fed up with sanctimonious statements about heterosexual marriage and that children have a right to expect both parents to play their part in their upbringing.
What about us single parents, widows, widowers, divorcees? We are always left out of the picture.
Complementary roles were always available outside the immediate family circle and they are also there for gay couples.
