Want To Lower The Divorce Rate? Promote Joint Custody

Robert Cunningham wrote in to tell me about this story from the Australian newspaper SMH. It discusses the reasons that women initiate divorce more, and talks about increasing the use of joint custody as a way to lower the divorce rate. From the article: "Susan Holmes has spent 18 years working with separating couples and believes there are some who can be helped to put their marriages back on track. She finds that when couples are presented with the notion of shared parenting, rather than sole custody, power battles are reduced and there are more opportunities for talk and possible reconciliation." It's a good news report with some very useful statistical data.
