Starting your family with a co-parent or a sperm donor
When you want to become a parent but you are either single, in a same-sex relationship or part of a couple with fertility issues, it's necessary to look for alternative solutions to help you have a baby.
Fortunately, over the past few decades, the family structure has evolved along with changes in society. There are now single-parent and same-sex-parented families, extended, reconstituted or blended families, stepfamilies and grandparent families. Some of these families are built with the help of fertility treatments and/or egg or sperm donation, others thanks to adoption or surrogacy. These days, the nuclear unit (two married parents raising their children together) is no longer the one and only possible type of family.
Another family structure has emerged: co-parenting families. This is when parents raise their child together without living under the same roof. On hearing this, we may instinctively think of divorced parents who share parental authority over their child. However, this type of parenting can also refer to two single persons or to two couples who have decided to team up in order to become parents, without being in a romantic relationship.
What is co-parenting?
Co-parenting enables people who cannot have a child the traditional way, to become parents. Same-sex couples and single people can start their family too, by looking for a co-parent. For example, a gay couple can pair up with a lesbian couple to have a child together, without being romantically involved. Single women and men wishing to create their family can also look for a co-parent in order to finally fulfill their parenting dream.
There are many advantages to co-parenting:
- Your child can grow up alongside each of their biological parents. Unlike with adoption or anonymous sperm donation, he or she knows where they come from, which helps them to build their own identity.
- Having a child with a co-parent reduces legal and administrative burdens, as this is a private arrangement. The opposite is true with adoption or surrogacy.
- You can really take the time to find a like-minded and reliable co-parent and, therefore, offer a stable and loving environment to your child.
If you are looking for a co-parent, it’s essential that you take the time to select the person with whom you will have a child. Your co-parent should be trustworthy and responsible. They should be someone you respect and appreciate, someone you would be happy to have and raise a child with, for at least the duration of their childhood.
