Been there, done that. My divorce wasn't my decision, it was handed to me. My kids were adults at the time and if my ex had to do it over again she'd make better decisions. She's her one person and as a whole it has benefited me.. I hold no animosity to her, I wish her the best. Took a while to get to this point.

I lost 15 years of work and careful savings in a divorce, I got off easy, we didn't have kids.

Absolutely hate it for the kids. But we live in a very self centered world. A lot of people can justify a lot of wrong stuff if it gets them what they want.

13% of women cheat and 20% of men. Women have more incentive to divorce as they are heavily favored in court.

I seen an interesting divorce of a friend of a friend.

Can't remember the guy's name , so I will call him John Smith. He had a wife for a bit over 10 years. The wife decided to leave him and take 1/2+ of his considerable assets. Papers were served and court dates set.

They meet up in court with their prospective attorneys. Her attorney was going over the assets , a house worth over 300k , several cars including a Cadillac and a Corvette. A couple Harleys. Several bank accounts and stocks. Total easily over 600k. Her attorney asked if these were all his assets , looking to take as much as possible from him to give to her.

John Smith replied that these assets were not his. The judge interjects that all these assets were in John Smith's name and should be split between the two parties.

John Smith again claims that this is not his property. The judge and her attorney are perplexed and want an explanation or John Smith could be held in contempt of court for trying to hide assets.

John Smith's attorney tells the judge that his client's legal name is John Smith Jr all the assets belonged to John Smith jr's father , John Smith.

John Smith Jr kept all his assets because on paper they belonged to his father. The ex-wife got nothing.

John Smith Jr had been divorced before and learned how to protect his assets better. The ex- wife never picked up on the fact that everything was not in her husband's name the entire time they were married.

John Smith Jr was a very smart guy IMO.

My kids mom decided to be a meth addict. We divorced in 87. Kids stayed with me. if anybody reading this knows how to have a marriage with a drug addict your way ahead of me. I couldn't do it.

She is dead now. Murdered by the man she was living with at the time.

I can't understand how anyone could be so bitter and hate someone after having loved them and lived with them and gave oath to love and protect them. Forgiveness is really overlooked I guess?

It is amazing what adults will put minor children through to satisfy their own needs. Yes some may need to be done for serious safety concerns but divorce is one way to put a lot of people in lower income environments with emotional issues. It seems that many who are desiring divorce as a way to resolve their issues are making the government financially and health care wise more involved in their lives and maybe by design.

Marriage is supposed to be a picture of our relationship with Jesus. The church is the bride of Christ. We the church constantly cheat on Jesus (idolatry), treat him like garbage. Yet he constantly forgives us and never leaves us. That should be the standard for us. Even when we leave him, he's there waiting for us to return

It always amazes me the way divorced peoples' next squeeze is often just like the one they divorced. Human nature, I guess.

My ex-wife and I got along better after our divorce because we both love our children more than we loved each other. And that was the best for all, because I don't think I was to far from turning her into catfish bait. And I think she knew it.
We're still friends to this day.

First wife and I divorced after I found her sleeping with another after coming home from a hunting trip and surprised them, he left and she blamed me, our little guy was three at the time.

I went straight to an attorney the next day had her served at her boyfriends place the day after that.

Our marriage was fine or so I thought, she did not work, I did but it was not enough money coming in for her I was told, she got the boy. I stayed in the home she moved in with the guy, I paid CS on a regular monthly basis, things were cool but I got to see my boy every other weekend. Things were working out !

Until I started dating again, then I was a rotten father sleeping with all kinds of tramps, could not talk with my son any more had to go to court again on my dollar to have them tell her she could not take him away, Still was not enough kept this up for 3 years

I finally married again the little guy was 6 now and wanted to come live with me, she let him and then took me to court for being a tramp father, LOL was just one battle after another because I chose to look for another partner, but ok for her.

In the end we both lost him due to an automobile accident, which she blamed again me and my wife, guess it worked out for the little guy as we was no more a tennis ball for her. My ending of her came when she passed away due to her way life.

I did not celebrate it, but I could have, but it would have put me in that party of egotiscal people thinking only they count, I do miss the little guy though, he would be 47 this coming August, the pain of that loss never leaves !!

Kids and divorce never go together, be sure of your mate before you have them, saves everyone heart ache pain if you decide to split !!

Anybody who says their ex won't let them see their kids is full of crap. You just have to man up, go to court and fight for your parental rights. If they won't give you visitation there is probably a reason. Fix that problem and go back to court. If it means getting counseling, get counseling. If it's a drinking problem, get sober.

Wow lots of great and sad divorce stories and advice.

Loose goose, I'm of the same mindset of those vows are serious and not to be taken lightly. I've seen marriages go over 70 years and it was awesome to talk with them. After all those years their eyes still lit up like a neon sign when asked about their marriage especially how they met.

A few buddies got full custody of their child(ren) because their ex was on drugs.

My parents divorced after nearly 25 years shortly after I turned 18. That was nasty and won't go into it.

It sounds like those of you that didn't have kids with your ex got really lucky.

The rental storage business seems to thrive on divorces. House it sold, each party gets a small apartment, and stuff goes into storage. Often it is abandoned.
