Para-kin Usage & More

Let’s face it … The definition of family in today’s world is changing.

Traditional marriages are not what they once were.  Yet couples and domestic partners who can’t or choose not to marry are a “real” family.  We introduce these mates as boyfriends/girlfriends, life/domestic partners, spousal equivalents, significant others, better half and so on. But in reality they are our spouses who have not walked down the aisle.  He or she is our para-spouse or p-spouse for short.

Just as a para-legal or para-medic provides support in professional life, a para-spouse lovingly accepts the responsibilities, obligations, commitments to a partner/child in personal life. And when our p-wife or p-husband help to raise our children, what words do we have to identify them? While our p-spouse cannot legally be known as a step-parent without a traditional marriage, couldn’t our partner be a p-mom or p-dad to our sons and daughters? Imagine…a term to describe a loving relationship between ourselves and our partner’s child.

blended families are para kinFamilies with children, both biological and step, often live under one roof. The inherent Cinderella notion of “step” can be divisive  rather than inclusive. So why not incorporate the terms p-son or p-daughter into your life and  cement the relationship?  English lacks new positive words to describe these inter-family relationships.

Para-kin is your solution.

    I am a P-dad and have been for 13 years now. My P-wife and I have two sons together. She came into the relationship with a son that was two months old and is now 13, she don’t want to be married so we just live together as husband and wife.

      Hey Kam: We are always looking for someone to write a post or article on the changes in the modern family. I noticed that you are already using the p-spouse term. That is great! Please write again and lets see if we can collaborate.

    I was wanting to know if you ever thought of replacing the layout of your blog? It is well written; I love what youve got to state. But maybe you can create a a bit more in the way of content so people could connect to it better. You have got an awful lot of text for only having one or two graphics. Maybe you could space it out better?

      thanks Marline for taking the time to conmment. I think you might be right and it is time for an update. Any thoughts for stories or articles you might want to post? Deb
