I feel for you fella.
Middle aged myself and have never married and no kids. Sometimes I want to or would like to leave a little gonzo behind but I just can't do it.
I witness couples that I thought were the happiest people on earth getting divorced way too often. It's no picnic and takes tooooooooooooo much work for myself.
IMO they all turn FREAKING CRAZY eventually.
Good luck and as said, get the nastiests/results lawyer you can afford.
Hang in there!
Thanks. You are a lot smarter than me
The other day I read some statistics that I couldn't believe. 50% of first time marriages end up in divorce.
You may think that second marriages would be more successful because first one would teach lessons and you are more experienced. WRONG. 65% of second marriages end up in divorce. And it gets worse for 3rd and followings.
Again, I don't want to scare anyone but if I had known half of what I know now 19 years ago I wouldn’t have gotten married, regardless of who she was. I think the old fashion marriage concept does not fit in today's modern life style. And family laws are completely out dated.
Good luck to all
