On Lorraine today, viewers criticized an “excruciating” interview with members of a same-sex relationship with a difference.
Californian “troop” Ian, Alan and Jeremy are raising two young children and recently won a landmark court case in the United States to have all three of their names on the children’s birth certificates.
However, some viewers found the interview difficult to watch.

Lorraine then asked the “herd” how the relational dynamic worked.
Jeremy replied, “Imagine if you are with your only partner and you disagree.
“But in our relationship, we have a built-in therapist, so there’s someone who likes both parties and can say, ‘Hey, you’re not clearly thinking about that.’

“Sounds awful especially since they can’t understand your accent.”
Another feared for the children themselves: “These children will grow up with a spotlight on them, constantly awkward questions. “
One of them added: “@reallorraine least cooperative interview ever with these three dads on #lorraine.
If the children are well looked after, there is no problem. People who judge are never happy no matter what you do. #lorraine
