Rest in peace, Martin.
Even removing the idea that she is gay, I still think the medical forms should distinguish biological versus guardian. I work in a genetics lab and we have to be concious of the medical information of step parents, half sibblings, adoptions and egg/sperm donors. Sometimes we get results that don't make sense and then we find out that they gave us the history of someone whos is not biologically related. I even forget with my grandma who is not my biological grandma but she has been my Dad's mom since he was 4!

I was just thinking about last year when DD3 had some oral surgery (done at the hospital under a general) they asked my Dh on 3 separate occasions who he was and if it was okay for him to be in there. With all the HIPPA laws in place now I really think hospitals have to be very clear on who everybody is.
Again, not that I think it is okay for people to ask weird questions about the relationships in non traditional families. And I am sure there is some places in this country where it would not be accepted that there are 2 moms (or dads)
