If everything else were equal, which house should have custody of the children, ages 4 and 6?
House 1 is a 2 story home in a nice, suburban neighborhood that's a quarter-mile away from a top rated public elementary school. The adults are a non-smoking, married couple. The man works from home and is only out visiting clients in the evenings after the kids' bedtimes. The woman is a SAHM.
House 2 is a mobile home in a very rural area, population 250 at the last census. The closest school is 13 miles away and is not highly rated. The adult smokes outside, doesn't work and has had 3 live-in "significant others" in the past 3 years.
Does it matter which house is the father's house and which house is the mother's house? Which house should be the primary residence of the children, with all other attributes being equal - same standard of living, etc.
