If I move out of the family home to make a statement of my discontent, does that affect any custody rights that i may have in the future even if i share in some child duties?

not sure what you mean, as in the reason for your moving out?
However, at present in the uk, kids generally ''live'' with the person not working or working from home, or, otherwsie able to be there for them most of the time.
This usually bears heavily in the mothers favour, for eg, in any custody disputes. Unless you have your own amicable agreement and can be there for the kids when required.
