    Dads make up 17.4% of single, custodial parents in the U.S., according to the 2007 Census, and thus get less attention for their role in child rearing, as opposed to the overwhelming majority of custodial single mothers who make up the remaining 83.6%

    Study 1: MASS
    2100 cases where fathers sought custody (100%)
    5 year duration

    29% of fathers got primary custody
    65% of fathers got joint custody
    7% of mothers got primary custody

    Study 2: MASS
    700 cases. In 57, (8.14%) father sought custody
    6 years

    67% of fathers got primary custody
    23% of mothers got primary custody

    Study 3: MASS
    500 cases. In 8% of these cases, father sought custody
    6 years

    41% of fathers got sole custody
    38% of fathers got joint custody
    15% of mothers got sole custody

    Study 4: Los Angeles
    63% of fathers who sought sole custody were successful

    Study 5: US appellate custody cases
    51% of fathers who sought custody were successful (not clear from wording whether this includes just sole or sole/joint custody)

    The study concluded:

    The high success rate of fathers does not by itself establish gender bias against women. Additional evidence, however, indicates that women may be less able to afford the lawyers and experts needed in contested custody cases (see “Family Law Overview”) and that, in contested cases, different and stricter standards are applied to mothers.

    They do though.

    I have to agree with this article.

    I work with a grown woman who willingly left her husband and 3 year old daughter to move in with a guy at work who she was having an affair with. This "other man" hated kids, and he would only let her move in with him if she agreed to cease all contact with her daughter. She chose this "other man" over her daughter, divorced her husband and never looked back.

    Fast forward 15 years, the relationship with the "other man" didn't work out. She's tried to rebuild her relationship with her daughter. At first, her daughter was happy to have her mom back in her life, but with time, she couldn't get past the resentment. They lead separate lives now.

    Whenever a new person starts working here, everyone spills the secret. Her reputation is pretty much ruined and everyone talks about her leaving her daughter for a man.

    The easiest thing to do is limit yourself to states that have open carry laws. Arizona, Oklahoma, Alabama, Alaska, Idaho...pretty much every red state.

    The ex raised one of her kids who wasn't his biological child. That does not happen without a reason.
    It had a reason. She didn't want to be bothered with raising her children.

    The role of government in medicine is not to provide it, subsidize it or mandate it, it is to get out of the way of those who do provide it.

    Before you can do things for people, you must be the kind of man who can get things done. But to get things done, you must love the doing, not the people!
