If we lived in a perfect world relationships would end on notes of mutual respect. People would not treat their children as possessions to be divided like the spoils of war; collateral damage of overblown egos. Co-parenting would be more important than winning in a game where there can only ever be losers. Custody battles are a blood sport where children are the trophy. At the end of the day, when all the scurrilous allegations have been made and the damage has been done, do you really think your children will be thanking you? Or do you think that once they are old enough they will just decide for themselves?
