I know a family like this. They never got married legally, but they were together and had a son and when their son was like 5, the "wife" decided that she wanted to break up but still live together and raise the kid together, and the kid is 14 now and they still live together and are friends but have separate bedrooms and love-lives (they are not "poly").
