DENMARK'S ADOPTION OF 50/50 EQUAL PARENTING USHERS IN "NEW DAY" FOR DANISH FATHERS

COPENHAGEN, DENMARK – A report published recently in the Copenhagen Post declared that 50/50 equal parenting has become the “law of the land” in Denmark. This turn of events has ushered in a “new day” for Danish Fathers. Ten years of research and twenty-year studies of children in Denmark paved the way for equal parenting to become the “default” in divorces. Under the new legislation in Denmark – a country which has a high divorce rate --, when parents divorce, joint and equal custody of the children will be granted to both parents. It has also been reported that Denmark has made its research available to researchers and policy makers in the United States concerning equal parenting and has also urged the European Union to promote 50/50 equal parenting as the “default” in divorce.
