Is He Gentleman enough to get Child Custody?

Women are now more equal than men in terms of pay, employment opportunities, and achievement in general. It’s difficult to believe that there was a period when women couldn’t vote, let alone work in a field that was predominantly male. In the past, women were expected to care for their home and children while staying at home rather than pursuing any kind of work or money. Nowadays, women are the ones taking care of their families and advancing to important positions. In any case, equality is no longer just a demand from women. In recent years, more and more fathers are requesting full child custody. In reality, a Pew Research study from 2012 revealed that there were 2 million stay-at-home dads in the country. It’s fascinating to note that there are now almost twice as many stay-at-home dads as there were in 1989. It is not improbable that more men are requesting full custody of their kids now that more fathers are giving up their careers to be at home with their kids.
