The percentage of ex-partners sharing custody of their children has more than doubled to 41% in the last 7 years in Spain. MiC partner Paco Abril explained this shift in culture to a Spanish newspaper. The transformation can be attributed to a change in the fatherhood model, and men’s desire to be more involved in caregiving towards children.
"The stereotype that the children belong to the mothers has been broken and they are the ones who naturally take care of it. There is a change of will in men and women, and a more widespread idea that sharing custody is good," he said.
