- Dont care, never getting married
Most Helpful Girl
Divorces when there are no kids in the middle are slightly less messy.
I have friends going through that right now and it's bad. But you divide your shit and you move on.
When it comes to custody, unless mother is like a drug addict or a prostitute, there's 99% chances she will get the kids. And I guess that's not fair, after all.0

I think it's still pretty obvious that men get the shit end of the deal in Family Court. Now things have improved vastly in the United States but from what I understand in the UK and some other countries men get the shaft. I was able to provide the court documentation that my ex had been into the mental institution on four separate occasions. I was going for full custody, but I only got half. 15 days out of a 30 day month. I'm in Texas. So I feel I got about as good a deal as I could get because the courts like the kids to be with their moms even if their moms are batshit crazy. Like for real, mental institution batshit crazy. I was never trying to take my girls away from my ex, but she was not ready to be a mom yet. But still, thank goodness I got those two weeks every month. She did her best to play the bad dad thing an attempt to get full custody herself. however, I think even her lawyer had to step in and make her understand that with the suicide attempts, anorexia, and drug abuse, she wasn't going to get full custody. So now life is great and I'm just having to put up with the far too common harassment of a crazy woman who was scorned in court. last week the kids and I were having dinner and we don't take calls and texts during dinner time. Text and voicemails can be returned. My ex was blowing up my phone basically saying that she has the right to talk to the girls at any time under any circumstances. She basically said that she's the parent and I'm sort of like the vice parent. And so she called the police on a wellness check. You know like a wellness check where you send an officer over to make sure Grandma hasn't fallen and can't get up? Yeah, I had Sheriff's at my door with instructions to find my missing children and we were all just sitting there laughing and eating pizza. The cops were pissed. They knew immediately that she had abuse the system just to harass me. It was a male Sheriff and a female Sheriff. I'm not sure which one was more pissed off but I heard some unkind words about my ex as they were walking away from my apartment door. Divorce is hell.0
