This research mainly discourse the 「Motherhood Practice in Taiwanese Lesbian Mother」. In the methods on qualitative methodology, interviewing four married lesbian mothers to understand their sentiments and family relationships, as well as how they maintain their relationships with her partner. Furthermore, we also get a clearer idea on division of housework and on the educational roles in the family, we link it with the value of the society and the culture in order to capture and have a better understanding of lesbian mothers’ sentiments and motherhood in the heterosexual marriages.
The research has pointed out that there is a great diversity status in lesbian married, some go on the internet looking for gay man to agree on a marriage for the sake of family pressure; some confess that they are actually bisexual and choose to recognize herself as a lesbian after ending up the first heterosexual marriage. Besides, the relationships in the ˝ agreement marriage with gays and the “heterosexual marriage” have also appeared differently to the typical marriage.
Beyond this, it seems contrarily that within lesbians families, negotiation and adjustment between the mother and her partner differ from heterosexual marriage type. Regarding housework, lesbian mothers tend to have a more equal and harmonious mode because they don’t consider housework as a “job”.
Finally, family relationships within lesbian families are various as for there include legal father, mother and their partners as well. The role of this relationship concentrates on “children”. Besides, the way he or she reacts with the children is very intimate; it appears to be equal, they would understanding how each other think and each other feel, etc. Considering the education, legal and their partner within lesbian family automatically develop a unique role based on relationship with the children. It never been confused not only they are one more care-giver; but also they can develop another unique interact-relationship with the children.
