Equality in rights and responsibilities of parents

The rights and responsibilities of the parents, in the absence of misconduct, are equal, and the mother is as fully entitled to the custody and control of the children and their earnings as the father. In case of the father’s death, the mother shall come into as full and complete control of the children and their estate as the father does in case of the mother’s death.
