What about parents who are fighting tooth and nail for an equal relationship? Spending ridiculous amounts of time/money against gatekeeping parents, in the absence of any abuse, major routine disruptions and with a solid parenting plan? Even if they had cold feet and made some bad decisions to not be there in the beginning? (Graduated schedule, etc)

I think they should have the chance, whether mother or father, to in the very least prove themselves as a 50/50 parent, regardless of how much their ex hates them.
