Linda S. Anderson, Protecting Parent-child Relationships: Determining Parental Rights of Same-sex Parents Consistently Despite Varying Recognition of Their Relationship, 5 PIERCE L. REV. 1 (2006). This article considers how states can retain the right to recognize or prohibit civil unions or same-sex marriages while also bringing predictability with respect to parental rights and responsibilities. The author proposes changes to the Uniform Parentage Act and state statutes that would place focus on the parent-child relationship rather than on the relationship of the parents.
