Adam Scott and Jennifer Westfeldt’s characters in ‘Friends With Kids’ try co-parenting without a relationship of their own, and now a new site connects adults looking for their own co-parent partner!

Modamily, a New-York based service, is “the first online community to facilitate introductions between responsible, like-minded adults committed to co-parenting a child,” the Daily Mail reports. Forget the pitfalls of dating and marriage. Two committed and financially secure adults can negotiate a relationship to put their child first without the risk of a bad marriage or divorce interfering.

“In two out of three divorces, a child is involved,” Ivan Fatovic, Modamily creator and former Hollywood talent agent told ABC News. “When a child is introduced, the mom and dad don’t get along and are fighting with each other.”

Instead of searching for Mr. or Mrs. Right, members search for the person who they think will make the best mother or father. All decisions for the child, from financial responsibilities to what religion to practice, are drawn up in a contract between the parents.

Not surprisingly controversy exists about the program. Julie Slattery, a psychologist for the national Christian organization, fears the effect on the children as well as the co-parents. “[Co-partners] underestimate the amount of commitment and work it is to raise kids together,” Slattery told ABC News.

People continue to find new ways to bring children into this world. Does it matter how as long as the child is loved and cared for? Can two people meet, have a baby and live happily ever after separately?

You really make it seem really easy together with your presentation but I in finding this matter to be really one thing which I feel I’d never understand. It seems too complex and extremely wide for me. I am looking ahead for your subsequent put up, I’ll try to get the grasp of it!
