I'm not often surprised at the position the majority takes on FE, and I usually agree. I'm a bit surprised on this one.
 
It's an occasion of sin if Milo's tempted to sin in the described occasion. You have no idea whether that's the case or not. Only Milo does (and God, of course). And you have no idea what steps, if any, he's taken to mitigate any occasion of sin that might exist for him in the circumstances he's in.

Which is why I said "likely" an occasion of sin; but it doesn't take much imagination or knowledge of human nature to say that.

Also, I'm a bit wary of the comparisons to a heterosexual relationship. This is not the same. A couple who converts and has to abstain because of a prior valid marriage, but who stays together because of children in the house, are living a natural life, with a natural family. A kid who's grown up with two dads, however, ought to learn sooner rather than later that two dads ain't a thing.

I know that's harsh. Sorry. Couldn't think of a softer way to say it. But it's especially important in today's environment.

Also, I acknowledge that I don't know the circumstances in Milo's case, and I don't know what advice he may have received from priests or others who are more knowledgable than I. But you're not going to convince me that it's generally wise for someone continue living with their former "partner" after leaving that kind of lifestyle.
Dissolve frigus ligna super foco
large reponens atque benignius
     deprome quadrimum Sabina,
          O Thaliarche, merum diota.

Permitte divis cetera...
