I don’t know what the laws are like where most people are but,
“What is your ex-wife’s newest lastname?”
Would be considered a celebration, not Nihilistic in a number of places.
Because that would mean she had got married again which under archaic laws she’s someone elses legal responsibility now. So,
1, No more alimony check,
And in some places,
2, No more child support,
3, The required selling out from under the new “happy couple” of the old matrimonial home…
But at the very least you will know you are not the only one without “the sense God gave a goose” and in all probability she was better looking back when you made that mistake so your excuse is slightly better.
But joking aside, the sad truth is the only people that win in divorces are those shark lawyers.
So the way to stop them taking a bite out of either of the now nolonger happy couple is don’t get in their clutches…
And the best way to do that as it’s been said on this blog,
“The prelude to divorce is marriage, if you don’t get married you can’t get divorced”
Also remember pre-nups may not be valid if you move or a legislator inks a new law…
