Children are one of the great assets they may come out of a marriage.

We divide up the real and personal property assets when qa divorce occurs, then award custody of the children to only one parent, giving the 50% of the real and personal property and 100% of the privilege of raising the children.

Then we add a generous portion of the income of the income of the non custodial parent.


So one parent typically gets 50% of the real and personal property

+ 100% of the value of raising the children

+ A generous slice of the income of the other spouse.


This is called "an equitable division of property."


Not at all surprisingly, this arrangement happens to be what women get in most cases.



This is the feminist idea of equality, except that feminists can always imagine additional cherries that should go on top to make them happy.
