    Mia Farrow and Woody Allen together adopted Dylan.

    So while it is true that she is the adopted daughter of Mia Farrow, she is just as much the adopted daughter of Woody Allen.

    Calling them boyfriend-girlfriend when they are the parents of three children--two adopted, one biological--is using a lightweight term for a twelve-year relationship with three children together.

    "Boyfriend-girlfriend" suggests two people who go to the movies together--not people who adopt children together.

    In my opinion, a "boyfriend's" status gets upgraded when he not only fathers children with the "girlfriend," but has a long-term parental role in the family.

      Mia Farrow and Woody Allen did not get married. They didn't even cohabit - both maintained separate residences. I guess you could call them "co-visiting partners".

      If it's
      Not your body,
      Then it's
      Not your choice
      And it's
      None of your damn business!

        While they maintained separate residences, apparently he was around the family on a regular basis and it was common for him to stay over at her house. And it is to be expected that he would be in the home with the children, a lot, since three of them were his own children.

        They weren't in separate homes and scheduling meetings in the park, half-way in between, or at the coffee shop.

        What do you call a relationship when one person is often on the road for work and not home for dinner every night? Does it still count as co-habiting? Does it count as a real family relationship? I think so.
