There are many reasons for this, but typically it has to do with the sense that the mother’s connection to the children is more meaningful to both than the father’s, and that fathers aren’t as equipped to be good parents as mothers are.
Overcoming these preconceptions can be challenging, but it is possible to petition for and win custody of your young children as a father.
