My life

I finally did the one thing that I thought that I would never do in my life. I went to an attorney to find out about filing for divorce. I found out a lot of stuff about what I have to do, what will happen and how long it will take place.

Divorces are really expensive. My mom used this attorney about 7 yrs ago and it cost her half of what I am going to have to pay. I do have two kids under 18 so that might have a lot to do with it.

I am married to a very cheap and stupid man. I told the attorney that one of two things is going to happen. 1. My husband will call my attorney and ask him to handle the entire divorce for both of us. (BTW! I hired the attorney, so he works for me. He will only accept all of my demands. He will not let my husband have anything that is listed in my papers. So my husband will be losing a lot if he is stupid enough to do this!) OR 2. He will show up in court without an attorney. He will want to represent himself. I bet that he shows up without an attorney.

I will keep y'all informed of my life of drama! Check back often to see what is happening with the divorce.

Congrats on taking the first step toward your happiness. Let me know how it works out. In the mean time, if you need to relieve some stress...

You sound like a very nice person, and a woman who is now very much in tune with her sexuality, compared to the way things likely were a few years ago. I hope that everything works out for you and your kids. It would be nice if there are no losers, but unfortunatley in these circumstances the ideal outcome is more often a matter of minimizing the losses, of all kinds, all the way around.

Perhaps the fellow you are married to will pull his head out. Or be realistic at least and let you play. In any event best of luck to you and if you see me online sometime, say hi.

This is not a put down for people who get divorced. Hell, my parents got one.

I'm very anti divorce, perhaps that's why I have never been married. I wanted to be married and have kids since I was 18. I thought the last girl of 8 years I was with was the one. Boy I was wrong. Dodged another divorce bullet. The sad part is that I would have married her in a second if she would have said let's get married. Nobody seems honest and loyal anymore.
My grandparents were, they knew the value of sticking together during rough times. They don't make em like that anymore. They were the greatest generation. Now I'm not naive, there are times when you got to get he hell out of there. That's why a long courtship and living together for a while is always advisable. Even then there are no guarantees. It just might reduce the chance. I've never blogged before now, maybe I'll try it again.
