From Yahoo: A bizarre case in New York culminated into what might be the first such case of a man, woman, and mother of a child being awarded a so-called tri-custody ruling. Michael Marano, the father in this case, and his ex-wife, Dawn Marano, entered into an open relationship with a neighbor, who bore Marano’s son in 2007.

According to the New York Post’s examination of the case, Mr. Marano and his wife were unable to bear children, so they agreed to enter an arrangement with neighbor Audria Garcia, all living in Long Island. The Maranos, who married in 1994, entered into their partnership with Garcia in 2001 while she lived below them.

Suffolk County Supreme Court Judge H. Patrick Leis III ruled in this case, stating to the court that “No one told these three people to create this unique relationship.” Judge Leis’s ruling went into the history of the relationship, which took place after Garcia left a boyfriend, who lived in the same complex when the “intimate relations” with the couple began.

Judge Leis’s ruling revealed that the couple and Garcia agreed to have the boy, born Jan. 25, 2007, and would raise him together. At first, the relationship seemed to be in sync, with everyone caring for the child, but things took a turn when Mrs. Marano left her husband to be with Garcia exclusively around the time their son turned 18 months. The new couple picked up and moved to Central Islip, N.Y., in 2008.

Mr. Marano sued Garcia for custody of their son. Mrs. Marano sued her husband for divorce. Joint custody was granted between Mr. Marano and Garcia, but Mrs. Marano, who developed a relationship with the son, didn’t have a legal right to custody.

The court reports that Mrs. Marano, who shares a home with Garcia, filed a suit for custody rights to the son. The case went to trial, which ended on March 8 with Judge Leis slamming Mr. Marano for having a child with “his wife’s best friend.”

Judge Leis says the son recognizing both Garcia and Mrs. Marano as mothers swayed him to deliver the ruling. There have been other tri-parenting cases but none to the level of the Maranos and Garcia.

Similar cases in recent past

In 2016, a high-profile matter involving a gay married couple in New Jersey and their friend made headlines. One of the husbands donated sperm and the other gave their daughter his last name. For a while, the partnership was harmonious until the mother got into a relationship with a man who wanted to move the woman and her daughter to California.

The couple protested the move and the nonbiological father took the case to New Jersey courts. While the court agreed that the man (named Shawn in the court documents) had a true bond with their daughter, the New Jersey Parentage Act would only view the proper parent as biological or adoptive. However, as a “psychological parent,” the nonbiological father could still fight for custody. The court sided with the couple and barred the move to California.

A few states do allow children to have more than two parents. California passed a bill in 2013 allowing the parenting arrangement to stand if a child has two mothers and a father. Alaska, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Oregon, and Washington all recognize third-parent adoptions in special cases. In Washington, D.C., and Delaware, sperm or egg donors can be recognized as parents legally. The exact number of three-parent adoptions allowed isn’t known because of privacy concerns.

  1. Isaiah 5:20 Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter.

    2 Timothy 1 Remember this! In the last days there will be many troubles, 2 because people will love themselves, love money, brag, and be proud. They will say evil things against others and will not obey their parents or be thankful or be the kind of people God wants. 3 They will not love others, will refuse to forgive, will gossip, and will not control themselves. They will be cruel, will hate what is good, 4 will turn against their friends, and will do foolish things without thinking. They will be conceited, will love pleasure instead of God, 5 and will act as if they serve God but will not have his power. Stay away from those people. 6 Some of them go into homes and get control of silly women who are full of sin and are led by many evil desires. 7 These women are always learning new teachings, but they are never able to understand the truth fully. 8 Just as Jannes and Jambres were against Moses, these people are against the truth. Their thinking has been ruined, and they have failed in trying to follow the faith. 9 But they will not be successful in what they do, because as with Jannes and Jambres, everyone will see that they are foolish.

  2. The Cubs won the World Series, Trump beat Clinton, and democrats are starting another civil war, this time in the North. On top of all that, trash like this… These are truly the end times.

  3. This is what happens when traditional norms and institutions are upended. Michael Marano, the fool, set in motion all this turmoil when he consented to an “open marriage” with wife Dawn and the female neighbor — who turn out to be lesbians, which Marano must have known.

    • this fool fell for the demonic programming that ‘every man’s dream’ is to have 2 women…
      A real man/woman would’ve followed Jesus and kept his/her relationship according to God’s Word…and maybe adopted a child.

      • Excellent point-there was a time when couples who couldn’t produce a child would ADOPT one,but now it’s SO much EASIER to just create a Contract of Sin and deal with the repercussions later…

  4. All three adults in this case are amoral degenerates – the only victim is this poor child. I pity not only the child but any judge who has to rule in this case. He would need nothing short of King Solomon’s wisdom, as the child is clearly bonded with the two lesbians. God have mercy on their respective souls.

  5. Jerry Springer Show in Real Life!

    There’s a Biblical proverb somewhere in the OT that says something like: “Never stay at the house of your neighbor for more than three days or you will begin to stink like a dead fish to them.”

    Getting too cozy in bizarre relationships, including surrogate-motherism, is bound to end in stinky trouble due to the fallen nature of humans.

    And the stupid real-wife all the sudden decided she was a lesbo? Pfff. And the husband was a dunce for having threesomes to begin with, even before the idea of having the third as a surrogate. Marano Spanish? Garcia Spanish?

  7. There is little doubt that when we turn away from God’s accepted norms, and follow the desires of our own heart that someone is bound is go wrong.

  8. Neither love nor sex are sins. However, turning a righteous loving human act into lustful pleasure for the sake of 2 lesbians is depravity. Chances are the child will follow the parents’ immoral path. This is why we so badly need traditional Christian education outside the home, to make a difference for the next generation.
