I see a serious storm brewing...
2003-04-19 02:28:08 PM  
I have no comment, just wanted to be first

This is another case of the man having no rights in family court just because he's a man. Happens all the time in Amerikay and I think it's sad and wrong. Poor guy.
2003-04-19 02:31:21 PM  
He should have told her to blow it out her burka.
2003-04-19 02:31:44 PM  
Poor guy. My heart goes out to him.
2003-04-19 02:33:08 PM  
That headline reads as shiattily as his marriage must've been.
2003-04-19 02:33:14 PM  
Insane_idoru: in Italy too
2003-04-19 02:34:21 PM  
the headline is kinda confusing
2003-04-19 02:35:38 PM  
Insane_idoru: In Britain too.

No matter what, men always get farked in the end by the divorce courts. "She always hit me with a baseball bat for not giving her good sex!" "NO EXCUSE! You owe her alimony!"
2003-04-19 02:38:56 PM  
And as the air raid siren goes off he sings:

Babe...I'm gonna leave you
Oh, baby, you know, I've really got to leave you
Oh I can hear it callin 'me
I said don't you hear it callin' me the way it used to do?
2003-04-19 02:41:01 PM  
public humiliatiuon? some people enjoy that kind of thing

2003-04-19 02:42:19 PM  
She sounds like a very attractive woman.
2003-04-19 02:42:26 PM  
Alimony is a relic from the days when women couldn't provide for themselves. It should be abolished. Child support is the only legit payment ordered during divorces these days.
2003-04-19 02:42:34 PM  
I agree the men never get a fair shake in divorce court. I've seen one two many cases of it.

Hell, the whole idea of alimony is retarded. Child Support I agree with, but alimony? No.
2003-04-19 02:42:41 PM  
Yep, that sucks alright. And as has already been said, this happens a lot.
And also, the headline does suck. Almost makes it seem HE publically abused HER - should read "Despite" instead of "Because of".

hey, she had to put up with ten years of crap sex.

he tried to demonstrate his sexual prowess in his defence, but unfortunately it wouldn't stand up in court..
2003-04-19 02:46:47 PM  
Women. They ALWAYS think they're the victims.
2003-04-19 02:47:01 PM  
Another "good" job done by the divorce courts! Men always seem to get screwed over in there...
2003-04-19 02:47:46 PM  
Yeah, but isn't that how Italian women act naturally anyway? He should be used to it.
2003-04-19 02:48:25 PM  
Was her middle name Oomfufu?
2003-04-19 02:51:31 PM  
This is why I don't want children.
2003-04-19 02:54:08 PM  
He should have just slapped her around a little bit. That'll keep the biatches in line.
2003-04-19 02:55:29 PM  
Hire a cop to put her ashes into a wood chipper.
2003-04-19 02:56:25 PM  
Well, I came into my marriage with assets, she came in with HALF of what I came in with. But when we got divorced five years later, she GOT HALF OF EVERYTHING. I worked my ass off making $40K/yr, while she was working jobs that made close to $15K/yr. Fair? I think not.

2003-04-19 02:57:36 PM  
on a totally unrelated note, has anyone actually gone to that ad for the matrix murder whatever thing? its pretty funny how misguided and controlled by entertainment some people are.
2003-04-19 02:59:39 PM  
Onward you bitter male divorcees! Share with us your bile and hatred for the woman who stole your life and then later your boat!

2003-04-19 03:04:14 PM  
hey, at least he made a go of her abuse for 10 years
2003-04-19 03:04:41 PM  
EMF. Been married? No? Then don't assume you know what it's like to see your assets taken by one who didn't work for them.
2003-04-19 03:04:51 PM  
What an ass.

Should have just pulled a Scott Peterson on her.
2003-04-19 03:05:26 PM  

Community property laws are a biatch. I'm 26 and have 401K and I'm about to get approved for a house. If I have my house and meet someone and get married, he'll have to sign a prenump or he'll get 50% of it all if we decide to divorce.

This greatly reduces the chances of me finding someone cause most men don't want to hear that prenump stuff unless they have assets too. Woe is me lol.
2003-04-19 03:08:13 PM  
Two words....

2003-04-19 03:11:18 PM  
Ah, Italia.
2003-04-19 03:11:31 PM  
Farkin Lady...
I actually feel that I got off pretty easy; all of her friends kept 'advising' her to make sure she screwed me by getting as much spousal support as she could. She didn't ask for any. It may be true that she doesn't have as much earning potential as I due because she doesn't have a degree, however, it is not my responsibility to provide for her security after the marriage is over.

She didn't 'put her life on hold for my career' as so many here are probably going to assume. We both worked full time, and didn't get married until the year I graduated from university. No kids either.

Sparks A guy at Kindergarten stole my G.I. Joe truck once.

That fag!
2003-04-19 03:13:12 PM  
Seems like a small price to pay for sanity regained.
2003-04-19 03:15:16 PM  
The only ones you'd want to consider making sign a prenup are the ones that won't sign. The ones that will sign you won't need to make sign b/c they'll be winners, like yourself
2003-04-19 03:15:40 PM  
You know....I farking submitted an article (it was a video) of a dude skydiving naked. His junk was flapping in the wind card-core. And it hasn't been posted. *tsk tsk*

How long until an article gets posted to the main site if it is chosen?
2003-04-19 03:16:04 PM  
Most men don't care about the prenup because they have more earning power over the long term (since they don't have to quit work for kids) and benefit more with a prenup.

Plus, no judge is going to award a man 50% of a woman's assets unless she is extremely rich. Even then, he will have a very hard time getting it compared to a woman in the same situation.

What happened to the guy in the article is typical. Women turn 40 and decide they aren't "fulfilled" like some Oprah fantasy and then initiate a divorce, taking half the guys wealth. There really isn't much incentive to stay married for a woman who can do this.
2003-04-19 03:18:43 PM  
Theres an easy way to get out of paying... he could always kill her. I would.
2003-04-19 03:19:20 PM  
I can't understand why pre-nups aren't a standard thing in all marriages now. I suspect people are loathe to plan for the worst - they don't want to seem like they expect the marriage to fail eventually. Better to plan a 40 year marriage with an unused pre-nup than a "War-of-the-Roses" type divorce if you ask me.
2003-04-19 03:19:34 PM  
I can't believe he put up with her abuse for 10 years though!!! That's probably why the judge is forcing him to pay alimony, because they were married so long; and, if she was really that bad, he would've/should've left left her a looooong time ago!
/my $.02 =)

When I got married, I had my own home, had two vehicles free and clear, a strong portfolio, an IRA Roth and a large savings account. He came with nothing, however he has always been very very supportive. I now live 3000 miles away from him, however he still lives in that home and drives one of those cars, but I see it as a part of being married. He contributes in other ways to the whole. Having said that, he is well aware that what I brought in I will take out in the event of a divorce;)
2003-04-19 03:20:20 PM  
Actually EMP, I don't hate my ex. I just got tired of being more of a father figure than a husband.

"A guy at Kindergarten stole my G.I. Joe truck once.
That fag!"

I don't get it. Are you trying to say that your toy that you didn't work for that was stolen equates to assets you spent YEARS acquiring, including inherited money from parents and other relatives? Pretty weak argument, at best.
2003-04-19 03:21:19 PM  
Hail Big Brother!
2003-04-19 03:22:20 PM  

I'd like to call you bitter, but I've seen it too many times. Then they spend 3 years post divorcegetting in tip-top shape shape, farking around, partying, and doing nothing. Lots of them get some fancy worthless college degree (ie masters in sociology, or a law degree from the local communishiatty college. Usually they don't even sit for the boards and they flunk it like mothers)Then they realize that the $300k or whatever the first marriage reaped really wasn't that much they start hunting a younger dope at the gym to rope in and it starts all over. I've seen it happen a half dozen times.
2003-04-19 03:22:38 PM  
See fellas, this is why it pays off to be a shiftless deadbeat. Style of living expenses? Sure I'll buy you a new box every month.

What I mean is you're going to get publicly humiliated by any woman your with at least a million times. Basically because just by being you, you publicly humiliate her at every moment. Damn.
