Politician has joint custody

The Wall Street Journal writes about a leading New York politician having joint custody of his 3 kids:
Mariah, Cara and Michaela: Andrew Cuomo's daughters are the female fixtures on his campaign trail, ...

Not having a wife by his side during such events, Mr. Cuomo has taken to using his daughters as substitute stumpers, softening his brazen image as well as polishing it with a measure of Kennedy clout. The children—Cara, her twin sister Mariah and 12-year-old Michaela—are the product of Mr. Cuomo's marriage to Kerry Kennedy, a daughter of Robert F. Kennedy. That union ended in a messy divorce in 2003 amid allegations that Ms. Kennedy had an extramarital affair. ...

In a joint custody arrangement, Mr. Cuomo and Ms. Kennedy split weekdays and trade weekends with the girls. Mr. Cuomo lives with Ms. Lee in a home that is less than five miles from Ms. Kennedy's Mount Kisco residence.
This type of arrangement is increasingly common among divorced parents.
