Hopefully there was a prenup or the judge feels she doesn't deserve any financial compensation or he might not have dodged a bullet.

That's not nearly as funny as the story in the slideshow (yeah, I clicked it, so sue me) about the bird that started to say things like "Divorce," and "Be patient," so the wife found out hubby was having an affair.

/I wonder who got custody of the bird in the split?
//If it was the husband, I'll bet he had a BBQ soon after

I hope they have over-the-top action and plenty of singing.

That's so nearly like the far side strip I'm laughing imagining it

So she filed for divorce after two months of sitting quietly, waiting for him to change his status?

Or were those two months spent nagging at him to do so?

First option sounds a tad unlikely (that be some insanely passive-aggressive shiat, yo), while second option would negate the "it slipped my mind" excuse. Either way, this situation sounds really childish on both sides.

I'm not Indian, so I have no idea what societal pressures there might be on a woman to have that affirmation. I imagine that in some societies it would be a big deal for everybody to know that he and she are taken, or that her husband is so-and-so. Of course, I'd expect it also to be a mark of disgrace in such a society to be a divorced woman...

Or, he could be a jerk and she could be way overly-sensitive. Yeah, that sounds more likely.

/wife pleaded with me to change my FB status immediately
//did so
///no longer have a FB page - take that!

They're all crazy. The trick is to find the particular dysfunction that acts in concert with yours.

I dated a woman for a while who was really into the social network "relationship" status thing, and back when mySpace had the "top friends" list, that was important to her, too. She asked me if I was going to update any of that, and I was like "any of what?" as I had no idea you could do all of that crap. It turned into a slightly disturbing mild argument that stayed with me for a long time.

We didn't work out.

Maybe it was 2 months of "You know why I'm mad, so I'm not going to tell you."

OK guys, can we have a Facebook moratorium now. Please. I don't give a rat's ass about Facebook and I find it hard to waste time while I am supposed to be working when it's thread after thread about Facebook this and Facebook that.....
 
2012-05-21 12:29:11 PM  
Sounds like that woman is spot on to me.
 
2012-05-21 12:36:49 PM  
It's terrible to generalize, but you should ALWAYS do the diligence on Indian women. I happened to overhear a bunch of them during the Bobbit affair, and they all agreed that Lorena was an idiot for ever leaving it around so it could be reattached. Their ideas were thoroughly squirmworthy. The mildest involved a garbage disposal. The others I still get nightmares from.

DELETE from FB_Users WHERE Relationship_Status='Single';

Hehhehheh, now there's a strong possibility...

Him: "Plain lentils again? Is something bothering you?"
Her: "As if you didn't know..."

Mine shows me as in a relationship with a plastic dinosaur. That remains the case whether I'm in a relationship or not. Fark facebook knowing anything much at all about my life.

People care more about Facebook Life than real life now. shiat is pathetic. Go to a restaurant any day of the week now - nobody is talking anymore, everyone is staring at their smart phones.

"It slipped my mind" is the kind of lame excuse offered by habitual liars. Either this woman has some other reasons for thinking this guys is a habitual, lying sleaze, or she doesn't. She may not want to cite all those reasons in court.

Or she might be crazy.

Statistically, are there more mendacious males or psycho biatches? Interesting question. My guess is it's probably about an even split, with a fair overlap of the "they deserve each other" pairings.

Man, gotta feel bad for that zuckerberg dude, though... he lost $2bln over the weekend! (Course, he made $20bln on Friday, so I guess it's not all bad)

At least she cares.

I feel awful about it.

I tell you what. Let's have dinner tonight. Pesto's at eight. I'll change my Facebook status. I'll bring The Godfather. You know that Paul Simon album you've been wanting me to tape? I'll tape it and bring that too, *and* dinner's on me.

"Oops, I forgot to tell people I was married," might happen as an innocent mistake. The last time I actually saw it happen, of course, it involved a guy who was getting laid a lot by women who were not his wife and was spending a lot of time flirting with women who were not his wife and did a fair bit of business travel.

This may, just a little bit, have colored how I tend to perceive men who get married and don't immediately, systematically, make the relevant announcements.

There's an old Irish saying, "Ta mo bhean phosta." -- "My wife is married."

Could he be the hapless, well-intentioned guy who just forgot and has all this drama coming out of him from nowhere? Could it be a case where she just expected him to psychically know that she was mad and why she was mad what he'd done wrong, for two months, while she slowly got more and more pissed, and finally blew up in his face with a divorce?

Absolutely. It happens. She could absolutely just be a drama queen.

I can see how a guy could innocently forget to change a setting on something as stupid as facebook if she hadn't complained to him that it was wrong--how often does he use it? And even for frequent users, how often do you bother to look at your own profile?

The "winnar" of "who wants to be an idiot" in this divorce hinges on communication: Were there or were there not multiple polite, civil requests and reminders to the husband to change his facebook status to married?

/no, I didn't--with the married guy--thank gawd
//I am not certifiably crazy
///certified, tyvm
///I could teach you, but I'd hafta charge

With Jennifer Aniston starring in 820 of them and Katherine Heigl leading the other three.

I knew I did the right thing by never signing up in to that creepy sh*t.

Good luck holding on to that worthless FB stock, if you were stupid enuff to buy shares.

I have a thing for women from India, but it's really a hit or miss thing. They're either stunningly beautiful, or should shop at the burqa store.
