Its a bit silly to pretend tears because you might sit alone on a Friday night compared to the marriage failing.

I mean really, think about it....
Whatever! I have no idea as to what that means in your neck of the woods. In mine it's called disloyalty.

Alan,

You sound bitter and it seems as if you have been affected in a negative way by divorce? Am I correct in my feelings?

none.

When a person starts to think about getting a divorce, one of the things they better understand up front so that there is no need for finger pointing later is...

That the divorce will split up the family, the friendships, the whole apple cart.

It will change everything.

Only a fool would think to themselves that "I can divorce my wife and all my friend's lives will remain unaffected by my actions"

The truth is, that a divorce can change EVERYTHING!
and you cant just hide behind your skirt and pretend you don't see it.

Now why do so many people that get divorced also turn on others who were also affected by their divorce and act offended by this?....
I think of the many reasons for this is self pity...self delusion...and self denial.

They live in a dream world.

My advice is: Wake up and smell the coffee kid.
