Studenteropgave: Semesterprojekt


This project examines how a father and a mother recounts each of their divorces and their following relationship with their children. We have seen a pattern that shows that mothers usually gets the children more days of the week than the father, in a case of divorce in Denmark. This project contains an overview of the changes of the danish parental responsibility act from the modern society to the post-modern society. Furthermore, we have used the theorists Kenneth Reinicke, Dion Sommer and Anthony Giddens to help us analyze the perception of parenting, the different aspects of the law, and parents association and relationship with their children after divorce. We have interviewed two fathers and a mother to get an understanding of how the law has influenced each of their situations. We also interviewed equality rapporteur Rasmus Horn Langhoff to get a more overall perspective of the reasons why the law is designed the way it is, and to get an understanding of why the law has a lack of equality on this particular subject. We have concluded that there is quite a big difference when it comes to who gets the children, and that this difference have something to do with the cultural understanding of the gender roles, and the rules of the danish law.
