I can't really remember any of the stupid and bad situations I put myself in, those are in the dark history years, which I can't recall too well.

Kurt, it's good to see you post in Foo. You brave soul, you.


Okay, here's an example. My ex-neighbor, who has been married for 33 years, found out that her husband has been cheating on her for the last four years. She moved to SoCal because he sold the house without her knowing it (she got a notice on the door type thing) and she is not sure if her name was on it. He sold the two family businesses that were never under her name, the huge party boat, the Cadillac, the Jeep, the big rig trucks, the FURNITURE and she is now living in a trailer that her sister let her stay in. She has never worked a day in her life ("I will always take care of you, honey. You dont' have to work") Never knew how to drive ("I'll take you everywhere").

Court is up here where I live and she is going to take the train to attend. I told her that I would be there for moral support. Now she wants me to get more involved with this by talking to her lawyer because she is so distraught that she doesn't understand what is going on. She said that whatever I say, she will be fine with, regarding the property and the business. In other words, she wants me to make some major decisions here. She is fighting for her rightful portion of such properties and business and wants to prove that he sort of disabled her by not letting her get involved with the assets. She told me she would sign anything I said was okay.

I love her to death and I'm pretty upset about what happened to her but I really think this is not my place to get involved here.

I think your moral support will be enough for her. She will have to fight this on her own.

As for me, I've felt that most of the decisions of the past I thought were stupid helped me somewhere down the line in continually developing who I am and how I carry myself. The only dumb decision I can think of right now that didn't do that was underestimating my workload for this semester. I slacked off more than I should have, and now I'm kind of worried. I feel like I'm fine, but since most of my professors aren't on top of stuff, I have no idea as to how I'm doing overall.

I have issues with this...for personal reasons. What exactly is she entitled to, never working for any of it?

When you get married and promise someone that they never have to work, they are entitled to things when you just decide to sell it all and give them the boot without any discussion.

She took care of that man. She stayed faithful and presented him with a warm loving home. Raised his kids, one of them disabled, cooked and cleaned. She did the same for the business. She would go and visit and clean up the places like a janitor would.

Because she didn't drive, and if her friends didn't pick her up, she was doing all of her errands by bus and walking. She didn't complain when he went hunting for a weekend or fishing all day long on the only days she would see him. Remember, this woman was home alone with no car and a child with limits for five days out of the week.

I have issues with you having issues with this. In california both spouses are entitled to half. When a woman tends the house and takes care of the kids, that's HER half. Like it or not.

Couple of guys at the office were going out for lunch and asked if I wanted to go, I went. In the elevator they started talking about their paintball guns (markers or whatever). Once at the parking lot, they both got their guns out their cars to show off. Then the hole thing progressed and to make the story short, we all ended up doing a death-match paintball game on the multilevel parking...

Next day our boss called us, played the security video and said "Oh God! please explain this one.".

And I have issues with having issues about having issues... but I won't derail the thread... marriage is usually a heated topic around here.

The paint went on the helmets and jackets mostly. Few shots on the pants but could be cleaned with baby wipes... and it was night shift anyway... on a Sunday night with the building deserted... nobody was going to see us... or so we thought.

What if she gave him a cold reception, did a poor job raising the kids, cooked and cleaned poorly forcing him to clean on the weekends, and did nothing to support him in his business or extracurricular activities (and in some cases sabotaging them)? Would she still be eligible for half?

What if you never promise them they don't have to work, they just assume this role as an entitlement because they're lazy and don't want to work?

Also, if you know any women that feel this way regarding men, please send me their numbers via PM.
