I just survived a long and contentious divorce in Will County and even though I got 'residential custody' of my child the court has moved into this new 'experiment' with fifty-fifty custody...

my kid lives with me for two days... is gone for two days... comes back for three days and is gone for three days over and over again.

I live 18 miles away from my ex and the poor kid lives like a refugee... it's hard for her to maintain friendships and do school stuff like sports etc...

I think they just started doing it last February.

In my opinion it's gonna hurt the children.

is any one else a victim of this new 'experiment' in child custody?

You should have never gotten married, let alone had children. Your daughter is paying for your own selfish and reckless lifestyle. You will get no sympathy here.

Try getting along with your ex and recognize that you are both parents and need to get along.

Gahd I know I should never have gotten married... and I'm not looking for any sympathy for me... but I do feel like the children who are going to be a part of this experiment deserve some sympathy.

My ex was diagnosed as a psychotic... which she hid from me... and she didn't take her medication... I've tried to make things smooth and get along... but there's no getting along with someone so detached from reality that they think the tv newspeople are talking directly to them...

I am interested in hearing stories of anyone else who is enduring this new 'fifty fifty' custody thing.

Grow up dude. Get past the finger pointing and name calling. You will drive yourself crazy with it. Just concentrate on being a good dad and helping your ex be a good mom. Also, I call BS- if she was really that crazy, there wouldn't be a 50-50 split.
