It's not a difficult thing to do if you sit down and use a calendar. That's how most mediators would do it. They would get a calendar and try to figure out, looking at the reality of the situation. Saying 50/50 is very different than enforcing 50/50, because if somebody get stuck at work or if somebody gets sick, there are a million things that can happen. I think it's really important that people think about those things when they're creating their plan. I think they can agree on the details but they may need some help.
