Why are women more likely to get child custody in a sivorce?

So, I've read that in divorces, women are more likely to get child custody. It got me thinking; my parents got divorced last year, but since I was over 18 I got to choose who I wanted to stay with, and I chose my father. But if I were younger and the judge had decided to place me with my mother, I think I would have been really unhappy.

Some say it's because kids need their mother. But don't they need their father too? After all, aren't men just as capable od raising and loving kids as women can be?

What do you think?
