It depends on the situation honestly. If possible 50/50 would be best when young, but after a certain age they get to decide. Actually I feel a child should always be the one with the choice no matter the age, as long as they’re safe and protected and loved.


The one who has everything set up in their home like they have a child living there! Own bedroom, clothes, toys, etc not just a suitcase and somewhere rolled out for them to stay like a visitor. They have to belong.

Both 50/50 but if the kids are old enough let them decide!

The one with the most stable home but the kids should also be happy about it

Both if possible but otherwise, the stable and nurturing one.

Both or whichever can provide the most stable home

Depends who wants them I guess :woman_shrugging:t3:

Depends on the parents honestly. There is no right or wrong answer, it really does depend on the parents and which is more stable and all of that… that’s what the courts are for.

Both, unless one can’t provide efficiently

50/50 unless there is a reason not to. That child is both of the parents. Not just mom…

If mom would have not been such a bag there would have been no divorce
