Terry E. McLeese, Jr., v. Tammy Lynn McLeese - Concurring
02A01-9605-CH-00130
Authoring Judge: Judge William H. Inman
Trial Court Judge: Chancellor Walton West

Custody of the five-year-old son of these parties was awarded to the appellee-mother in a post-divorce hearing. The parties initially agreed upon joint custody.  The father appeals, complaining essentially that the Chancellor relied too heavily on the tender years doctrine. We cannot substitute our judgment for that of the Chancellor, but are bound by the limitations imposed by TENN. R. APP. P., RULE 13(d). Unless the  evidence preponderates against the judgment, we must affirm.
