Actually, I've always wondered how much they actually spent sleeping together, once they moved to town when Ethan started work at the Rep Center. Janos seems to spend so much time hanging out with his buddies, he's probably not home much when Ethan is. I can, however, imagine Janos sleeping his way into the arrangement.

Having children with their partner's 'mother' seems to be a theme, and Ethan's half-brother is the half-brother of Janos's half-brother. Given Athos's limited gene pool they're probably faintly related themselves. Yet this seems to be accepted as totally normal by everyone.
