Fifty Percent

“What do you think makes a divorce contentious?” As the professor waited for a response I looked around the room to see what anyone would say. I knew that I was going to be the only person who would really know the answer. Most – if not all – people in my class had probably never even gotten married, let… Read More Fifty Percent

The Stuff No One Tells You About Divorce

What Getting Divorced Taught Me

One of the things that I regret doing when I was going through my divorce was taking advice from everyone.  This is what happened: My divorce was dramatic.

The TV called Spite

For the past three years I’ve had in my possession a rather nice 50 something inches projection TV that I might have liked under other circumstances.   A refrigerator. That’s what my husband was supposed to be shopping for when he went to the appliance store that day way back when. He did purchase a… Read More The TV called Spite
