Can parents determine their own custody arrangements?

When parents choose to raise a child separately, it is rarely easy to figure out how each parent will share the responsibilities and privileges of parenting. If the couple never marries, they may work out an informal arrangement between themselves to determine how to share parenting time (although this is typically unwise), but if the couple divorces, they must reach a custody agreement approved by a Texas court. If they cannot reach an agreement, the court will determine this arrangement for them.
