Help me get a divorce!
or,Understanding Divorce
or, The Ins And Outs of Divorce

I've been through a divorce and so have several people I know. Whatever the reason, I have amassed a lot of experience with divorce and I'm here to tell you what to expect. I'm not going to pull any punches or try to make you feel good by dressing it all up like it's something it's not. Divorce is ugly. Divorce is hard. Divorce takes a toll on a person's self esteem. But I'm here to tell you, it does eventually end and things will be better.

Let me start off by saying that no matter how bad your marriage seems to you right now, you really need to think long and hard about the decision to divorce. Marriage counseling and therapy are far easier than divorce. Also, if you have children, you owe it to them to give every effort to holding your marriage together. The rest of this article assumes you've made every effort to work things out with your spouse and you are ready to face a very difficult challenge, the divorce process.

If you have not separated and are not in the process of the divorce yet, there is one way to go through a divorce that can save a lot of money. This approach certainly is not for everyone, especially if you have a career and a house and kids to support. But if you don't have anything to lose, here is one way to think about divorce.

First, lose your job and don't earn any more money. Develop a mysterious illness (mental, physical, I don't care) so you can't work anymore. Sit at home all day long, play video games and just be a really nice guy to everyone. Even if you hate your spouse, put on a smile and just be the nicest guy in the world and be apologetic for your inability to work. Act like you feel guilty for not being able to bring home a paycheck...
