Baby vs. boyfriend

Usually differences over wanting a child can break up a relationship, unless you happen to be a certain couple in Ottawa, Canada. The woman in question wanted to have a baby. Her boyfriend did not. End of romance, end of story—usually. The would-be mother decided to keep the live-in boyfriend and have the baby via artificial insemination. And now the new mom and her partner want to draw up a legal document explicitly stating that he is not a legal guardian and has no custody whatsoever over the child. He's just the man who lives there, that's all. You are now free to feel like the best parent in the world.
