Spoiled selfish actress Kelly Rutherford got a favorable write-up of her child custody dispute in Vanity Fair.
I mentioned this case here and here. Robert Franklin explains what is wrong with the Vanity Fair article.
Needless to say, if the mom had been at all reasonable, she would have had 50-50 joint custody or better. Instead, she is locked into a death struggle for sole custody, and suffering the consequences. Eg, she kidnapped the kids because she did not think that a judge would order her to return them.
She probably thought that she could divorce her non-citizen husband before he can get a green card, and then he will not have any rights that a USA court will recognize.
She is pretty and has a lot of TV fans. Does that give her some special rights?
I cannot stand reading this junk anymore. If you believe that we should live in some sort of matriarchy, maybe you will side with her. Feminists have claimed for years that they want equal rights, not a matriarchy. The courts are a mess. There are simple fixes to most of the problems, but they will not be accepted as long as people sympathize with Vanity Fair articles like this.
Seems like the courts did exactly the right thing here. I doubt if I'll ever read another copy of Vanity Fair though.
