The ABC comedy Modern Family reflects (hilariously) that families don’t look quite the same as they used to.
While “traditional” families may be a thing of the past — with a mix of all sorts of possibilities making up the family dynamic now — here’s one that’s just a little bit different.
In this Good Morning America piece, meet a real-life modern family that consists of two dads, a mom and a baby.
Unconventional? No doubt about it.
How does this polyamorous family make it work?
Check out how their unique relationship has just as loving a dynamic as any conventional situation.
Unlike polygamous families, this situation doesn’t require marriage and, in this case, it’s one woman with two male partners.
Jaiya Ma is juggling two relationships under one roof and says she’s in love with both men. Jaiya and Ian, who have been together four years, are their son’s biological parents, but she’s had a 10-year relationship with Jon, who she compares to a comfortable pair of shoes.
Jon does most of the chores and is a stay-at-home dad to son Eamon, while Ian pays the bills.
They each have separate rooms and have a schedule for intimacy, plus they’re all free to date outside the relationship.
