How do you feel about 50/50 custody? Is it right? Do you feel it benefits the children? I'm asking because I am having some problems dealing with it. Please share any stories, good or bad I would like to get some advice. .

I have done 50/50 shared care for 7 years now. I find it works well for us. My ex and I only live 5 mins apart so the boys still go to the same school, live in the same area etc.

It can take a bit of getting used to remembering everything to pack on changeover day though but it does get easier.

A few years ago my oldest son (would have been about 7 at the time) said he likes spending 7 days with Dad and 7 days with Mum. When I asked him why he said: "I have 2 houses, 2 beds and 2 toothbrushes" It made me smile as he just saw that he had 2 of everything and his friends only had 1.
