Para-kin Usage & More

41273902_125x125 love and family checklogoIt’s for men and women in committed relationships, with a spousal equivalent, significant other,  boyfriend/girlfriend, or same sex partner where a traditional marriage is not chosen. 

English provides a variety of words to describe folks in serious relationships but the words are full of ambiguity

just reflect on the word “Partner”

Without a traditional marriage certificate, “partners” have very little standing in the eyes of the court and society. It is time to challenge this notion.

For all the couples who are in loving, committed relationships, Para-kin endorses the term p-spouse. We hope you will too.

 Para-kin terms are your answer

 

Para-kin is for so much more than the couple involved in the relationship.  CHILDREN deserve identity also. There are simply no additional words beyond son, daughter, step-son or step-daughter. If words identify and define our relationships, then we are p-moms and p-dads to our p-sons and p-daughters.

 

 

CAN IT BE DONE?  CAN LANGUAGE AND WORDS REALLY EVOLVE TO REFLECT TODAY’S BLENDED FAMILY?

Absolutely!

In precisely the same way that the designation of “Ms.” filled a void in our language and culture in the ’50’s and ’60’s, there is a need to provide positive words to describe the close relationships that exist today. Our mission is to add words to our vocabulary and dictionary which will accurately reflect, describe and embrace the evolving family relationships through the promotion of para-kin™ terms.

  1. Jorene Couture says:

    The fact that this concept comes from the desire to find a more loving and personal way to describe very important relationships in our lives (versus the clinical, noninclusive use of the word “step”)is a tribute to just how special and widespread these relationships are today and how the numbers will continue to grow. It is an exciting new option for describing for those people who mean so much to us!

    • Para-Kin says:

      I think you hit the nail on the head, Jorene. We live in a society replete with blended and non-traditional families that are far too precious and special to go without a label. Para-Kin fills the void with loving and inclusive terms. Thank you for writing!

    Every family is different. This is a refreshingly different aspect on an old concept.
