I would agree with Bernier - some people use the fight for 50-50 like they do when selling a home in that they ask for more than they really expect to receive as a negotiating tactic. Ask high, receive a low-ball offer and counter somewhere in the middle. Yes this does happen and I wouldn't be surprised if this was the case with Ange who smartly weighed the pros and cons with going to trial which is time-consuming and extremely expensive.

Some people do not want a 50-50 arrangement with their children and are quite content with the EOW arrangement. It doesn't mean they love their children less. Some people's employment, new family, extended family commitments, relocation, etc. makes 50-50 not feasible.
