Cupid's Pulse Article: Charlie Sheen Seeks Temporary Custody While Brooke Mueller Goes to RehabCupid's Pulse Article: Charlie Sheen Seeks Temporary Custody While Brooke Mueller Goes to Rehab

Charlie Sheen may just be “winning” temporary custody of his two boys while Brooke Mueller enters rehab.  RadarOnline reports that Sheen’s soon-to-be ex-wife checked in to a facility over the weekend following a crack-cocaine bender, where she sought out drug-free urine as well as refusing to take a court-ordered drug test.  “Charlie Sheen has had enough with her excuses, period,” said a source in Sheen’s posse.  “Brooke refused to take a random drug test. Charlie’s attorney will use that as evidence that the boys are better off with him than with Brooke.”  Mueller’s attorney is expected to argue that the boys should be with their grandmother, a socialite in Palm Beach.  Her lawyer added the boys haven’t seen the former star of Two and a Half Men, since he left for his Tornado of Truth tour.

How do you decide if you should give up custody of your kids?

Cupid’s Advice:

It’s tough to know when to let go of your children to settle personal matters.  Cupid has a few checkpoints to peruse when deciding who gets custody after a separation or divorce:

1. Say “no” to drugs: It’s safe to say that kids should be avoiding illicit things while they’re young, so make sure there isn’t anything morally unfit in your house before welcoming your offspring into it.

2. A foot on the career path: Perhaps after your split you’d like to focus your life on your career, and having children around would only make things more stressful.  Consider giving up custody to a more committed parent.

3. A necessary and proper home: The biggest part of your self-test is whether you can provide a proper home and lifestyle for your children to grow.  Your child’s welfare needs to be the top priority.
