men always get the short end of the stick when marriage ends

Is there any evidence besides anecdotal that supports a bias against men in the court system?

Yes.

Women win custody 85% of the time that it's contested.

Men make up 96% of persons ordered to pay alimony.

And this is in a world where the average 20-something female outearns the average 20-something male.

Still anecdotal but when my parents divorced the courts wanted to squeeze tons of money out of my dad. My mom didn't want him to have to pay the amount they told him and had to appeal to the courts about it. She makes more money than him.

On my phone, but studies showed women get child custody 80% of the time and 90% of alimony is men to women. I believe family courts are explicitly biased again men. Alimony is gender blind in theory, but men earn more most of the time.
