Should a court withhold custody based on a parent's weight?

If you were fighting for custody of your children, it goes without saying that you would do pretty much anything in order to get your kids. But what if the court's decision to withhold custody was based on something that was at least partially out of your control?

More Kennesaw seniors are filing for divorce

It is probably not inaccurate to say that most Marietta residents consider divorce to be something engaged in by relatively young couples; those who can't make it past the "seven-year itch."

A woman has filed a fraud lawsuit against Neiman Marcus, alleging that the store allowed her estranged husband to buy more than $1 million in goods from a personal shopper with whom he was having an affair.
