So I'm very sorry to create such a negative post, and if you don't want bad feelings, I encourage you to ignore this thread and find one that is more wholesome. I am feeling exceedingly angry and frustrated right now. I have a dear friend who is going through a horrible divorce. His wife has done a number of things, including cheating, lying, stealing from him, and mentally/emotionally abusing him. As if things weren't bad enough, all she wants is money. Money money money. She doesn't care who she hurts, not even her own kids. And thanks to the incompetent lawyer he has had, my friend now has to pay her a staggering amount of alimony, in a non-alimony state, despite the fact that he is working two jobs and paying all the bills, and she works part time and pays nothing. He barely even has money for food. How do people think this is okay? More than that, why is it that the people who are so downright nasty and contemptible get away with everything? I am struggling with feeling very violent toward her right now, which I know is not right. I have tried and tried and tried to let go of things and just look forward to the good things in the future, but seeing someone hurt one of my friends so badly makes me very upset. My friend is a very patient, kind person who has put up with years of this bad behavior in their marriage. The rabbit hole goes a lot deeper than that, but if I tried to explain it all, we'd be here all day and I still wouldn't feel better. I just feel so upset that people think it's acceptable to treat other people so poorly, let alone their own family member. I don't know how the justice system got so screwed up. I don't know what to do or think right now. It makes me sick for my friend. Divorce is such an ugly thing. And people like this are even worse.
