> Here is another example, in Colorado every custody case goes to court under laws which, in some instants, I wrote or had a part in becoming law. C.R.S. 14-10-124, Best Interest of Children states that the court will consider †the ability of the mother to place the needs of the children before her own vain and petty needs, it also states that the court will consider the ability of the mother to encourage the sharing of love, affection and contact between †the children and the father That right there is how fathers obtain custody of their minor children.

In fact I recently purchased four new tires †for her Jeep (from a custodial father pal of mine who gave me a GREAT deal).
