If kids are involved, you can never have 50/50. WHoever has the kids will get more for sure.

This rarely happens. Everyone wants to get more from their exes. It's the best revenge.

If it was split 50/50, couples wouldn't need lawyers but that's not the case. People will fight tooth and nail to get more.

Yes. You are a marriage of equals so the division of assets and liabilities should also be 50/50.

The moms should get more if they have the kids. It's expensive to raise kids!

Yes, I agree with that. The one who will get the custody of the kids should get more.

Yes. Unless one is a parasite, both deserve equal distribution of assets.

But if the dad has the kids he shouldn’t? Your answer screams inequality whether you meant it or not. Sadly legal systems seem to agree with you anyway.

Yes, it should regardless if there's only one person who's actively employed.

Let's the court decide for it. They know what would be the best for both parties.

Rarely the case. The man always ends up paying more.
