Sharon M. Grosfeld, a family law attorney and a former state senator and delegate, said following a 2007 Maryland Court of Appeals case on civil unions: "Without the legal status of marriage, the question of custody when same-sex partners break up and children are involved is much more complicated. If a child is the biological child of one party and not the other, what are the legal rights of that other party, particularly if the child was nurtured by the other party since birth?"[1]
