Many St. Clair Shores, Michigan, couples start their married lives together with sacred vows in which they pledge eternal devotion to each other.

That started to change shortly before the Civil War, and by World War I, the custody of children went to their mother by default.

Currently, the standard used in child custody cases in St. Clair Shores, Michigan, is called the "best interests of the child" standard.
