Shared parenting in Kentucky

Well if you have managed to open the article after the incredibly bored headline …

Coming hot on the heels of the report about the German Liberal Party supporting shared parenting, the US state of Kentucky has passed a resolution to:

What House Bill 492 does is it basically states that walking into the courtroom each parent has the presumption of 50/50 shared custody to start with.

So until permanent custody is settled,  shared parenting is (apart from cases where the child is endangered) mandatory.

Though what is really interesting are the voting figures: The bill passed 97-0 in the house and 38-0 in the senate.

Why is this taking so long to be accepted and acted upon in most parts of Europe?
