The Mind of a NON-Cheater Husband

Be not alarmed, Madam, on reading this post, by the apprehension of its containing any political rhetoric.  The following excerpt featuring President Donald Trump and former FBI Director James Comey is used merely as the gateway to demonstrate how a non-cheating husband thinks about the possibility of being accused of cheating. In first excerpts of…

I Did Divorce Better Than You Did (or doing) Divorce.

In a series of recent experiments, we found that people who endured challenges in the past (like divorce or being skipped over for a promotion) were less likely to show compassion for someone facing the same struggle, compared with people with no experience in that particular situation.

Maintaining Boundaries

This is called “taking care of yourself.”  What a savage. If you cannot read the tweet it says: “My sister just got in an argument with her boyfriend in HER car while driving home and literally pulled over…took the keys…left him in HER car and got an UBER.  I’m screaming.  this is the pinnacle of…

Zap and Nuke

The ex-husband and his syphilitic sidepiece are at it again. He sent our daughter an email with only, “Contempt- ‘when you sell household appliances.’  Next week is going to be interesting.”  Actually, our divorce decree states that I cannot remove appliances that typically come with a house sale.  What he is referring to is a…

Homewreckers Play a Mug’s Game

mug: British Slang. a gullible person; dupe; fool. On the emotional position of being the other woman, and why to avoid it…….the homewrecker says: “Did I know what a mug’s game was before I got involved with a married man? – No.” “A mug’s game,” she told me, “is ripping your knees raw and breaking…
