My dad's father died in 1944 when my dad was three years old. My dad hardly knew his father. He was raised in a single parent family. Maybe my dad's older brothers served as role models, in between serving in Aden, Kenya, Korea etc. Reality was he hardly spoke to them - the most contact being at their respective funerals.

Never said anything about divorce. I'm referring to children born as a result of sperm donation, donor egg IVF, and surrogacy outside of Switzerland where only one person in the parents' marriage is the biological parent. If that parent is incapacitated or dies, the other needs to be legally recognised as the parent/guardian, and this is often done through adoption by the non-biological parent.

I have a trans friend who's (thankfully) very patient with my questions when I see a new gender identity term being used. :D Plus, two of my closest friends deliver diversity training courses in police and local government. This last few years has been a huge learning curve for them.
