I wonder how many of his "manic bouts" can be wrapped up by those instances when he reminded golddigging wife that she signed the prenup?

The document also details Jamie Aguiar's account of the couple's turbulent marriage because of Guma Aguiar's "severe bipolar disorder, psychosis, illicit and prescription drug abuse, and psychological problems" for which he was undergoing treatment.

My ex is just as, if not more so, crazy. Now with a conviction and a few restraining orders against him, dirt poor... yet there seems to be an endless line of stupid girls who fall for him.

Shes hotter than that picture leads you to believe, she was even hot in the courtroom shots when his mom was suing for control of his fortune, it seems that he faked his disappearance to get rid of this shiat and his mom knows where he is hiding.


I would believe this. Nice guy to disappear on his wife and 4 kids.

TheBigJerk: Skyred: Is it possible to overturn prenups? What's the point of them if you can just overturn them.

Apparently it is. As to the point? Well even if it can be overturned a pre-nup makes it HARDER for a gold-digger to steal all your money and leave you alone.

Really though, the fact that he was a repeat-offender in terms of going off his meds and the fact that his mother is clearly also insane (it takes a special type to be meddling in her son's affairs when he's got kids and 100 million dollars) and the wife was clearly a trophy, this kind of thing was just inevitable.

Best bet would be foster home and trust fund for the grandkids and leave the crazy biatches nothing.


The MIL was most likely the instigator or antagonist in many of these scenarios.

Ed Finnerty: During my trip to Ilium and to points beyond-a two-week expedition bridging Christmas-I let a poor poet named Sherman Krebbs have my New York City apartment free. My second wife had left me on the grounds that I was too pessimistic for an optimist to live with.

Krebbs was a bearded man, a platinum blond Jesus with spaniel eyes. He was no close friend of mine. I had met him at a cocktail party where he presentd himself as National Chairman of Poets and Painters for Immediate Nuclear War. He begged for shelter, not necessarily bomb proof, and it happened that I had some.

When I returned to my apartment, still twanging with the puzzling spiritual implications of the unclaimed stone angel in Ilium, I found my apartment wrecked by nihilistic debauch. Krebbs was gone; but, before leaving, he had run up three-hundred-dollars' worth of long-distance calls, set my couch on fire in five places, killed my cat and my avocado tree, and torn the door off my medicine cabinet.

He wrote this poem, in what proved to be excrement, on the yellow linoleum fioor of my kitchen:

I have a kitchen.

But it is not a complete kitchen.

I will not be truly gay

Until I have a

Dispose-all.

There was another message, written in lipstick in feminine hand on the wallpaper over my bed. It said: "No, no, no, said Chicken-licken."

There was a sign hung around my dead cat's neck. It said, "Meow."

I have not seen Krebbs since. Nonetheless, I sense that he was my karass. If he was, he served it as a wrang-wrang. A wrang-wrang, according to Bokonon, is a person who steers people away from a line of speculation by reducing that line, with the example of the wrang-wrang's own life, to an absurdity.

I might have been vaguely inclined to dismiss the stone angel as meaningless, and to go from there to the meaninglessness of all. But after I saw what Krebbs had done, in particular what he had done to my sweet cat, nihilism was not for me.


I guess I have something to re-read too! Man, The Big Lebowski, Cat's Cradle, son spending the night at grandma's, wife and I have date night with Thai and Zombieland (she's never seen it), saturday at the pool, It's shaping up to be one hell of a weekend.

mahuika: He's the one who is missing.

And it sounds like the pre-nup thing and the disappearance are correlated, but not because she's at fault: he suffered from manic episodes, and would choose to stop his medication on purpose when he was stable, which is hella stupid. Article says that one time, he physically abused her while she was pregnant, and threatened to kill her father.


He may be guilty of all of those things, but, if the wife was looking to overturn her pre-nup, it is because she is going to divorce him. Two parties choosing to amend a pre-nup is one thing, trying to get it overturned completely is a legal move to get him for as much money as she can.

Also, she can try to have it both ways, but when you are dealing with the court system, they tend to use transcripts and documents to prove their cases. She can't say, "This marriage is hell and I want the prenup voided" and with another breath say"I loved him and our marriage was fine so I get to control his estate", (even though he is not legally declared dead).

She may have gone through a lot with him (he sounds like he was a challenge) but that does not mean she gets a big payday.

I think a pre-nup should be standard without actually having one. The rules are ass-backwards. If you want to give your crap away, you should have to sign something before you get married specifically stating your wishes. Marriage sucks donkey dicks. You're in love, you have a couple of kids, things are great for 8 years then suddenly she finds out her life is meaningless and she needs to find herself...without you. Suddenly, you're watching the last 15 years of your financial planning get ripped in half. Lawyers are experts at egging both parties on to fight for crap that is meaningless. She'll spend $3,000 in legal fees to have the lawyer write up documents over crap you wouldn't argue over anyway like the 1995 Toyota and the basement furniture. Lawyers then teach people that kids make great weapons during a divorce and you can reap huge financial rewards by using them as tokens. The courts love this too, apparently because seemingly most judges automatically assume men make horrible parents and they don't deserve their children more than a few days a month. Then you get to spend the next 3 years battling in court to get custody of your kids. You spend $42,000 in legal fees and you end up with used furniture, half your pension, your kids part time and a bitter hatred of life. Meanwhile, that blood sucking leach of a woman you married conveniently managed to suddenly "find herself" by banging her boss and marrying him (and donating the damn 95 Toyota to charity). I'm not bitter.

She married and had 4 kids with a man that deceived her and possibly abused her. That would piss any woman off. He's most likely hiding and his mother is helping him avoid responsibility.

Ok. What didn't you understand about my post? I said that he sounds like he was a challenge. I agree that he had some mental health issues. However, trying to change your pre-nup is a legal move before divorce. She was trying to put herself in a position of favor. There was a pre-nup in the case of divorce. If she wanted to divorce him, no one is stopping her (harder now that he is not around), but don't pretend that she wasn't trying to get as much money as she could.

Skyred: Is it possible to overturn prenups? What's the point of them if you can just overturn them.

She's arguing that it was based on a false statement of his assets.

master_dman: So this gold digging whore KNEW he was bat shiat crazy.

She married him anyway knowing he was rich.

Typical gold digging whore.

Did I already mention that this gold digging whore is nothing but a gold digging whore?

Was he batshiat when they married, though?


Most likely? Not as such. I mean he probably was shiathive maggots, but he was probably also on his meds and semi-lucid during the courting, and that combined with the dollar signs and the delusions people get when they first hook up allowed her to convince herself he wasn't that bad and/or she could "change" him.

Backsliding medication is a serious problem with the imbalanced.

PluckYew: Why does the prenup apply?


Because it's a legal agreement. Not sure I understand the question.


PluckYew: Wouldn't she just keep managing the family assets in his stead? Does he have some sort of power of attorney preventing her from doing this?


Again, this is a weird question. The assets are not hers to manage, and never were. Whether the guy is alive/dead/married/single.

namatad mahuika: would choose to stop his medication on purpose when he was stable, which is hella stupid.

this is so common. this is one of the reasons that teenagers were committing suicide after they stopped taking paxil. (toss in side-effects with sleeping meds and you have a death party)


Ok, first off, it is quite common that people who have a psychiatric disorder stop taking their meds. They think because they are asymptomatic that they can stop.

Second, paxil is an antidepressant, teens who take antidepressants are at an increased risk of suicide or suicidal ideation. While stopping paxil suddenly can cause some side effects, suicide isn't list as one of the normal ones. However, that aside, the normal drug used for people who are bipolar is Lithium. If Lithium doesn't work, then its a combo of an antidepressant and an anti psychotic.

Yes, it is fairly clinical. After my youngest was diagnosed as bipolar at 12 years old (her dad, my ex was diagnosed after that), I read pretty much everything I could find on it. It helped me understand the disorder better.

HoneyDog: namatad mahuika: would choose to stop his medication on purpose when he was stable, which is hella stupid.

this is so common. this is one of the reasons that teenagers were committing suicide after they stopped taking paxil. (toss in side-effects with sleeping meds and you have a death party)

Ok, first off, it is quite common that people who have a psychiatric disorder stop taking their meds. They think because they are asymptomatic that they can stop.



nope, they like the feeling of crazy.
