Actually my ex works much more than me but I was surprised (as an American immigrant) when the custody was automatically awarded to the mother. Since it's me who has more free time I end up taking them from the day care and she's at work until late. But why shouldn't law take into account that various situations can exist? Why should I be dependent on her good will for access to my children outside rather short visiting hours.
