The non-legal reasoning is also that if the kids have one filthy-rich baller as a dad and a normal-income mother, they may or may not be inclined to hang with dad as much as possible. This causes all sorts of friction as divorcees, and if the rich parent (regardless or sex) wanted what was best for the kids (which is often having a good relationship with both parents...and the parents not using the kids a bargaining chip), ensuring that there isn't a huge drop-off in lifestyle between the parents is a good idea.
