Here is the full text of the amendment put on the ballot this week, and will be voted on in November unless successfully challenged in court,  that will prevent co-habitating adults from being foster parents or adopting.  To be clear, it means if you are in a sexual relationship with someone not your spouse and they live in your home – you cannot be a foster parent or adopt a child.

As has been pointed out – it applies equally to straight and gay couples.  It also means, even if this passes, there are no rules anywhere that prevent single people from adopting or being foster parents, whether they are straight or gay.
