      even of different sexes is limited based on Utah law.

    •  Here's an excerpt: (0+ / 0-)
      When an unmarried mother gives birth, the biological father of the child does not automatically have any of the legal rights or duties that go along with fatherhood. The law allows the mother, child, father or State of Utah to legally establish that a man is the father of a child. When this occurs, the child's paternity has been established. "Paternity establishment" gives unmarried parents all of the same rights and duties that married parents have when a child is born.
