    It's come to my attention that at least half the couples we know (over the course of the past 10 years or so) are either divorced or have such shitty marriages that they ought to be divorced. (Was just informed of another.)

    Is this everyone's experience, or is this just a reflection on the type of people I hang out with?

    Isn't the divorce rate somewhere in the general neighborhood of 50 percent?

    Not everybody can have the exciting, fruitful, traveling-to-Zanesville-for-some-anonymous-friend's-wedding-during-a-playoff-game marriage that you enjoy, you know.

      Do you know why getting a divorce is so expensive?




      It's worth it.

        Only the lucky ones. The other ones stay married.
        But wait. There is something that can be done afterall. My good friend Angelo is a cop in the Tampa/Clearwater area. Since I kept all of the files from the access logs when I had the power to see them, guess what, I have everyone's IP addresses. Hmm..what can I do w/ those??

          I guess that's true about the rate. What gets me is that time and again it's marriages that look absolutely rock-solid to the outside observer. Couples you'd never suspect, one after another....

          Oh -- speaking of Ohio -- surprise birthday party tomorrow night we're supposed to go. Until I saw that the game's on KPLR as well as ESPN, I had to fight like hell just to be able to slip out at 9:45 to go catch the game somewhere, since these folks don't have cable.

            My first wife paid for the divorce,wanted no alimony and I had to pay child support "when I was able to". In other words, piss them off so badly that they will do anything to get rid of you...

              Reggie, you might represent what I"m in for in the future.

              Its hell, isn't it? I need to just shut it down while I still can.
              When you say to your neighbor, "We're having a loud party on Saturday night if that's alright with you," what you really mean is, "We're having a loud party on Saturday night."

                Nah. I've never had a second thought about getting married. I didn't get laid before then, either.

                There IS a time and place for everything, though. I sure as fuck didn't do it when I was 22 or anything freakin' crazy like that.

                    True enough. After all these years, I still don't know why she doesn't quite grasp that rather obvious fact.

                    Other than the fact that she's a WOMAN, of course.

                      I told her I didn't want to go to these fucking weddings of her family and her family's friends.

                      "But you're going to part of the family."

                      They dont' get it.

                        I hear divorce parties are bigger than some bachelor/ette parties these days.

                          Look at the bright side: You don't have to go up and do any of that garter-catching shit anymore.

                            I never did that anyway. Too much trouble.
