Plaintiff (husband) and Defendant (wife) were married with two children. Plaintiff applied to the Court for a decree of divorce, child custody, and other ancillary relief. The Plaintiff argued that because Defendant was lesbian, the Court should prohibit Defendant from sharing the same bedroom or floor with any person during unsupervised visits with their children. He was concerned that if his children learned that their mother lived with a lesbian partner, they would be influenced by and therefore develop homosexual attitudes and practices. Defendant requested that the Court grant joint custody. For the past two years, both parties had informally shared custody of their children.
