How do you feel about shared physical custody?

Do you believe that shared custody is more beneficial for a child than the standard custody arrangement where one parent has custody and the other has visitation? What do you see as the drawbacks of this type of arrangement? Should the child have a primary residence or should both homes be considered equal?

I don't think there really is a great solution to this. But this question reminded me of a book I read where the judge in a custody/divorce case decided the kids keep the house and the parents have to move in when it was their respective time with the kids. This way the kids at least got to stay in the home they grew up in and didn't have to be shuttled from parent to parent, lol.

What a great judge! That sounds about as perfect for the kids as you can get in a divorce situation.
