Introduce a presumption of 50-50 shared parenting on separation

Children need both parents and both parents are equally important to the children. This obvious fact should be written into the Children Act to stop implacably hostile parents from subverting a child's inalienable right to know both parents. 50-50 as a starting point makes far more sense than the existing presumption of alternate weekends and half the holidays.
