A new website offers an opportunity to its members to find like-minded people,who are interested in co-parenting a child but not sex or romance.
Although sceptics have highlighted the potential side effects,but supporters say that forming a sexless union,simply for the sake of having kids,might even be better for children,given that half of all US marriages end in divorce,ABC News reported.
The website,Modamily.com,has asserted that this approach helps to solve the problem of quickie-clock-ticker marriages and resulting divorces.
The shared raising of a child between two loving,committed,and financially secure adults, the website says.
According to CEO and founder Ivan Fatovic,a former Hollywood talent director who also worked in finance,couples can decide for themselves how they want to conceive the child.
Some might opt for sex,others might use home insemination methods or,if they have the financial resources,they can even go for in vitro fertilization.
The New York-based site was unveiled last week and so far has seen about 20,000 visitors,70 per cent of them heterosexual men in their 40s and 50s,Fatovic added.
