Same criteria

I am answering the question posed by Reuben Whiting in last week’s letters pages.

I am neither a “brilliant law student” nor a “practising lawyer”.

However, if a “lesbian or homosexual” divorce or part, and have adopted (or dare I say produced) children, the judge decides who has custody in exactly the same way as when a heterosexual couple part.

That is in the best interest of the children – why should there be any different criteria?
