Professor Joslin Comments for New York Times Magazine on Gay Adult Adoption

Professor Courtney Joslin commented for an article in the New York Times Magazine on gay adult adoption. Prior to the legalization of same-sex marriage, some same-sex couples turned to adoption as a means of providing legal status to their relationships, the article states.  Such couples, most of whom are now elderly, might find themselves subject to "a criminal incest statute" in some states if they marry without first voiding the adoption, Professor Joslin said.

Professor Joslin is a scholar in the field of family and relationship recognition, with a particular focus on same-sex and non-marital couples.
