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.
