Of course. Even though society has come a long way in terms of acceptance and equal rightsfor homosexuals, the debate still rages as to whether children can be adversely affected by witnessing such a lifestyle. Fact is, there's no conclusive evidence that same-sex couples do any worse as parents than opposite-sex couples. But whether the argument holds water or not, it could feasibly be used as an effective tool in court. The outcome will depend on how liberal the judge is, and on the laws in your state. Of course, if your child is old enough to testify -- especially about how they feel about your partner -- that will carry a lot of weight. One warning: DO NOT attempt to hide the relationship from the court. That would definitely work against you!
