The aim has also been to see which effect the sharing of parental leave has had upon them in their everyday life. The study was based on qualitative interviews with both parties of three couples that had chosen to divide the parental leave equally. The main findings of the study was that dads have the freedom to choose whether they want to stay at home or not meanwhile the mothers have no such freedom.
