LovingFather32 is an unknown quantity at this point

The Right of first refusal clauses are more complex and intricate than that.

Support systems, (such as my mom and g/f) are highly regarded in family court. No offense but all mothers should be out in the workforce also when the kids are in school....which would necessitate support at times also. They wont always run to dad...its no problem to have a support system on your time.

-I'm just curious - you bring up equality a lot. Are you doing things outside of posting on here that would actually advance equality for women so that they would not need to do things like be SAHMs? Are you writing to your MP for universal daycare or encouraging dads to take parental leave? Are you advocating for equal pay for equal work? Are you living and breathing the equality mantra, working to break down structural barriers, or is it just Family Law specific?
I talk about children's rights to have equal relationships with both parents.

It has been noted by many justices in many cases that denying access to a loving parent is tantamount to child abuse...and I agree.

No, I'm not going to fight the feminists fight for them (to answer your question). But I will encourage parents to involve the other parent as much as humanly possible in the kids life if circumstances are right .. because that's what's best for the kids in a majority of the situations.

More should follow suit.
