Quoting limited to 4 levels deep
This is my biggest issue, the word primary. I have no problem with Gabi going to New York and I have no problem with Ari residing with her for half the time. Just as Gabi hasn't been shown to be unfit, neither has Will, so this should be about joint custody. All I have heard Gabi talk about is how this contract gives her the opportunity to come back to Salem with Ari once a month to visit and how Will can come visit them anytime in NYC. It's like Will is a family friend or a family member like an uncle or a grandparent rather than Ari's father with all of the same rights as Gabi. It's just assumed that her rights as Ari's mother supersedes those of Will's as her father. Both have the same rights so both should share custody.
Not across state lines. It's called primary custody because one parent has most time with the child. It is not common for an even split across state lines because it causes instability for the child.

Looking at it as Gabi vs Will isn't what a judge will do- they look at it as what's best for the child. And the best thing would be the person who is the primary caregiver continuing as such. Food, baths, play, bed. Who does that stuff? It seems like they have shown us that it is mainly Gabi. Will and Sonny are having fun playing house, but they aren't being shown to be equal parents. There is no custody agreement and Gabi and will were never married, so she can theoretically just do what she wants. If he goes to court over it- well, she moved there to provide for her child and has a contract that provides extremely well for her to parent.

Will (unemployed, lifetime student, changes majors frequently, connections to the dimeras) honestly wouldn't stand a chance.

Edit- of course we are talking about a fictional show that takes liberties with laws and processes, so anything could happen, that's just how reality would affect the situation.
When Will said yesterday he's changing his major...so he's not even a senior? Move him and Abigail along already! Graduate them, this is ridiculous.
Shouldn't Abigail be Theresa's age? Why is she still in college?

Because there was a four-year period when she didn't age at all. When Ashley Benson left the role, Abby was 20. When Kate Mansi returned, she was still 20.

While most characters are rapidly aged, Abby is one who has been constantly de-aged to the point that she is actually close to her "real" age of 21.

To quote Michael Fairman: "How much more of this Dannifer are we going to have to put up with?"

Shawn Christian: "What do you want me to do?"

MF: "I want you to end it and do something else." :lol:
Did this really happen? OMG, I love it :wub:

-----------------------------------------------

That Theresa owes Jennifer an apology, I can buy. But that the whole focal point of her intervention should hinge on Jennifer's opinion is contrived and ridiculously absurd. I also thought it was kinda weird for Jennifer to basically say "You are dead to me unless and until you threaten my son" (I can buy that she'll be more forgiving of perceived threats against her own self than perceived threats against her son) inside the pub and then go outside and tell Kayla she does hope her niece sorts herself out. I suppose she knows theoretically in the back of her mind that Theresa needs help, not condemnation, but she can't bring herself to overcome her very visceral mama bear reactions. All that's fine except when you get the feeling that I sometimes do that the show feels like Theresa's biggest crime is being a Dannifer obstacle and the drugs are an excuse to give that supposed crime a moment of catharsis.

In fairness though I also think they're playing up the Jennifer-Theresa strife to lay the groundwork for future JJ/Theresa. Jennifer is going to be their couple obstacle.

Dannifer sure don't behave like two people in love. Actually it seems like Dan loves Jennifer but Jennifer simply doesn't want to and greatly fears be lonely. If she had some kind of nervous breakdown I think it'd be a great vehicle to get her to psychologically examine herself.

When the truth about JJ being with Theresa comes out, I hope someone will also learn that JJ had been supplying Theresa and maybe Jennifer can apologize to Theresa about that.

There is something about Jen Lilley's performance that really works for me. Even after that demoralizing speech from Jennifer, Theresa goes straight back into survival mode. "At least I can stay, at least I'm not going to prison". Theresa's got that self-preservation streak that's shaping up to be a consistent yet not anvilicious character streak.

Yes, it did. It was totally unexpected, and I couldn't stop laughing.
