I got here through a law firm blog – and I couldn’t agree more that some people think nothing of getting married and divorced 3 or more times. What happened to a lifelong commitment? http://patrickcrawfordlaw.wordpress.com/ 2011/10/18/divorce-and-the-great-recessi on/

We went from being debt free with the exception of mortage to car loans in excess of 49K for 1 car and 100K in credit card debt. In the end she walked away with paying a car note, 50K of credit card debt, $2100 of child support, and 50% of her retirement. I took on 50K of credit card debt, 400K mortgage, 50% of her retirement and child custody.

Financially she is still hurting 2 years after the divorce. In my view Adultery is not worth the cost, but I guess others have a different value system.

Marriage isn’t bad if both partners go into it for the right reasons.

In our system, wives own husbands and men have figured that out finally.

The solution to divorce is to heavily tax marriage.

Women who find themselves suddenly alone with no real financial education, need to learn the real basics of a balance sheet, cash-flow management, credit profile, debt management, etc., so they are propared for the divorce negotiation process, and can be educated when talking to their financial and divorce professionals. Then after divorce they’ll be in a much more favorable financial position.
