    So my brother is divorcing his wife of 20+ years. They've dated since they were in the 7th grade, but she hasn't slept with him for four years, and promised she would divorce him once the kids went to college.

    He said, "Why wait" and got things rolling for a divorce.

    They have two kids. A boy who is 14 and a girl who is 11.

    My brother has already purchased a house only 3 miles away from their current house (so the kids can stay in the same schools) and he'd like to have the kids split time evenly between the two households (until they go to college). My brother will pay for 100% of college, he'll pay for both houses, he'll pay for her car, he'll pay alimony and child support. Basically, he's still paying for everything. He makes a good living.

    It's not enough for her.

    She refuses to split time evenly with the kids and is forcing them to go to court where she will have THE CHILDREN TESTIFY that my brother is a bad father. He's not. He spends all of his time either working or playing with the kids. That's all he does.

    So here's why they're going to court:

    * If she gets her way, he has to give her an extra $200 per month in child support.

    In her infinite wisdom, she has racked up $12,000 in legal bills (so far) in an effort to secure $2,400 per year in extra support money. By the time the court wrangling is over, she'll be in debt to her attorney for over $15,000 in an effort to get that $2,000 per year. The kids will be long gone by the time she breaks even on her efforts.


    WTF is wrong with people?

    Sure sounds like she's the issue, but marriage is complicated. I'd be interested to hear her side before I start making fun of her. Can you ask her to sign up for an account here?

    Haven't you said you're not entirely happy in your marriage? What would you do?

    Dragging her kids in court to testify against their father is a nice move.



    As far as her picture....let's say that she's let herself go in her 40's and while most of you would probably find it in your hearts to do her, you wouldn't once you found out she'll spend the checking account past zero every single month.

    My brother makes 150+ per year and she brings in 25 per year and they're broke every single month. They have no car payments and a small mortgage.

    She spends THAT much.

    That sounds like my ex-wife with the bank account drainage, but she did that every day/week/month for the 13 years we were together

    Sorry, that's a little bit too personal.

    My brother LOVES to work. It's a problem with men in my family. But he works at the house upgrading, so he's not off on a lake or playing golf or getting drunk. He just loves to work.

    As a result, he's paid a lot, and their house is pretty darn cool.

    He has a Masters in Engineering, an MBA, and honestly he's a good-looking guy. The ladies like him.

    Yeah, but the problem is sometimes ppl really ca't work things out, which is why they get divorced. Plus, it really does take 2. What if only one person is willing to put in the effort?

    I was joking about the Dawg account. :) Again, sure sounds like she is the problem. You just never know what goes on between two ppl though.

    It likely isn't her. It's her lawyer. divorce lawyers want them to fight so they get more money. Tell the husband to go talk to the wife. Sit down and work out a deal, then tell them to tell their lawyers to make it happen or fire them. Once everything is done, have them file a complaint to the state bar

    Example of her spending:

    They have Verizon FIOS. Having a DVR in the game room and the living room wasn't enough, so she ordered DVR's for each kid's room and the bedroom. Now their FIOS bill is something like $350 per month.


    Here's my favorite:

    She administers the lunch program for the schools in the area. She's the Lunch Lady, only at a high level. Guess which two kids had their lunch cards expire and had to go hungry? Her kids, because it's her job to make sure they have money on account.

    This is why you don't start a negotiation with a good offer. Should have offered her a bag of chips.

    You're a reasonable person. She's being an idiot.

    They went to mandatory mediation and she wouldn't budge an inch. The mediator agreed with her that my brother should be home from work by 5:30PM each night.

    My brother is a VP and he works an hour from home. They live there so she could be close to her parents.
