In Re Marriage of Gould v. Gould

(1) Where custodial parent engages in illicit relationships, the court must show a connection between the relationship and some harm to the child. Parent is not unfit if there is no effect on the children. (2) Also, basing decision on religious affiliation is an abuse of discretion. (3) Change of custody cannot be ordered based on economic, social or academic environment.
