Shared Custody on the Ballot in Massachusetts

Family law issues affect millions of people, and a lot of them are very unhappy about it, but it doesn't become an election issue very often. Here is an exception:
A ballot question, sponsored by The Fatherhood Coalition will ask voters in many state legislative districts if their representatives should support joint custody as a standard in divorce proceedings.
The Libertarian Party candidate for President has taken a stand for parents' rights:
The default presumption in any divorce proceeding must be for joint custody of minor children.
Badnarik has some goofy ideas about getting the courts to recognize fathers rights as a matter of constitutional rights. I doubt it, but I'm glad that someone is addressing this major issue.
