If you're in a bad marriage, don't spawn. Children do best with two functioning adults to raise them. If you're dumb enough to think a child will save your marriage, do the world a favor and put a bullet through your skull.

Come to think of it, my mom did throw my stepdad out around this time about a decade ago.

Took her long enough. The man was evil. His own mother had to get a protection order against him.

CapeFearCadaver: How come the women get three negative adjectives while the men only get one, Subby?


To be more specific about this, "shrew" and "asshole" are used as nouns here, not adjectives. That said, this leaves men with 1 negative noun and no adjectives, and women 1 negative noun and 2 adjectives, unless you count "nagging" for both sexes, but then again I've never heard a man described as "nagging".

Now, why has subby added these adjectives. Did he/she feel that "shrew" wasn't as intense as "asshole" and felt the need to buff it up for the sake of equal opportunity slamming? Is there some misogyny here? Was "harpy" his/her word of the day? So many questions!

Strangely enough, after RTFA, it would seem more logical to add adjectives to men, as they are the ones targeted by the bulk of its arguments.

You are absolutely right. I should have raised the kids until adulthood in a home with two parents that hate each other. That way they could learn what it is like to have a good model for their own relationships when they grow up, as opposed to a dysfunctional cluster-fark. I can tell you from experience that it is awful for the kids to be raised by two single, happy parents, because god knows demonstrating to your kids that staying in a shiat relationship isn't as important as having two parents.

/let me guess, your parents divorced when you were young so you are incapable of seeing divorce from an adult/parents prospective.

My grandparents were married over 65+ years until my grandma's death.
My parents have been married over 45 years.
I have been married over 17 years.

My well adjusted and somehwat happy background informs that there many selfish dickweeds who get divorced for selfish bullshiate reasons. People who perhaps did not have a real-world example of what a long-term marriage looks like, so as soon as things gott 'difficult' they decided their personal happiness was bigger than the family life they built. Rather than re-committting and re-building, they give up because, hey, you HAVE to be HAPPY 100% of the time, right?

But don't let your self-validating narcissim alter your justification of your life decisions.

I don't know what it is that makes women lose interest in sex after marriage. Either they are even more bored with repetition than we are, or they never were that interested and just use sex as a means to an end.

so what you are saying is that based on your experience, no one ever marries the wrong person, or people don't change or treat each other poorly during a marriage. You just keep working at it, even after a couple of years of marriage counselors you keep moving forward insuring everyone in the family is miserable, becuase it is the marriage that is important and not the well being of everyone involved. It might just be that your experience is different than other peoples, and that you are being sanctimonious.

The wife and I have discussed divorce several times. Mostly as a means to improve our finances ... do you know how much money she can get from the gov't to support three kids?

She gets my entire paycheck now, and I would only have to give her child support! Bonus!

Sounds like a winning proposition!

generally known as "I've finally got that nagging harpy shrew/asshole off my back, now it's time to find some strange" Day

It's only called that until about 10:30pm, Subby. At about 10:30 on that first night is when the guy looks around the bar and realizes, "damn, there's a reason I stopped coming here". He hasn't been in so long that the cute little bartender he used to flirt with is now a married mother of three who has been replaced by some guy who won't even acknowledge him while he's waiting to get a drink. The skanks all look to be about the same age as his niece who recently graduated college and he doens't really know how to approach them because he doesn't remember his Twitter handle and they don't remember the Soup Nazi episode of Seinfeld. After listening intently to the conversations of the patrons next to him he FINALLY realizes what YOLO means. But he unfortunately tries to incorporate it into a pick-up line, telling a young girl that "you only LOVE once" and he becomes a bit of a laughing stock because the guys standing near him overheard it. He realizes that this scene isn't for him anymore and as he walks to the door a guy calls out to grab his attention. The guy is leaning against the bar with the young lady rubbing her ass against him and he says, "bar chics don't love once. Most of them don't even love one at a time. Lol". The sting of the mocking laughter sends the former husband on his way and the name of the day officially becomes, "Great. I can masturbate with the volume turned up now".

Perhaps. This is FARK after all.

Yes, marriage can be a grind. But people can get through it. Maybe not you. And if there is actual abuse involved by one party or the other then yes, it should be ended. Sorry if I was harsh. But yes, I do believe the family I have built is a more important entity than any measure of my personal happiness / fulfillment.

But I have heard from more than one set of divorcees that "They didn't think the kids would take it so hard", and it my make my -- perhaps sanctimonius -- blood boil. The 'family' unit is the ENTIRE WORLD to a child. The amount of stress and anxiety over the dismantling of the primary reference to world order for child is more than 'rough'. It is an unravelling of almost all of their self-identity. And the reason some parents inflict this on their kids? "Oh, well, we just became different people."

So...fark all the lazy divorcees with their self-entitlement issues. Those who fret and clutch their pearls about what the kids might go through, but decide to make them go through it anways so everyone can be 'happy'. And the lesson to the kids? When life gets tough, quit and run away.

"Modern Man Blues" by 10cc

I'm tired Lord and I'm drawn
And I'm chilled right to the bone
I crawled home from my work
And this note said she was gone
Said your dinner's in the cat
And your love is out the door
I'm goin' back to my momma
And I don't want you no more, no more
She said she don't want me no more
She's gone back to her momma
Said she's never never comin' back no more

Now a man can take so much
And only heaven knows his limit
But a naggin' biatchin' woman
Digs a hole and puts him in it
A sophisticated man
Needs a little something on the side
So what you don't get at home
You've gotta get outside, hey

She's gone
I'm spending all of my money
She's gone, gone, gone
And I can swing with my honey
She's gone
I'm so glad my woman's gone

Now time goes marching on
And it won't wait for you
You've gotta take it when it's offered
And get it when it's due
Now a man can move much faster
Without a millstone around his neck
So if you get the chance to lose it
You've gotta drop it and run like heck, hey

She's gone
I'm spending all of my money
She's gone, gone, gone
And I can swing with my honey
She's gone
I'm so glad my woman's gone
She's gone
I'm spending all of my money
She's gone, gone, gone
And I can swing with my honey
She's gone
I'm so glad my woman's gone

Leaving my ex wife and filing for divorce was the ballsiest and best thing I ever did.

I got away scott free, too. Had my own apartment and was settled in and downloading porn all night to my heart's content within two days. Owed the ex nothing, and haven't talked to her in three years. Hell, I'm not even sure she is still alive.

Everything was great...for a while.

Then, last year, I went and got myself involved with a NEW woman. Stupid, stupid, stupid.

I don't think I can get out of this one as easily as the last. Looks like I've squandered all of my "get away with it" cards. Leaving this chick is going to be painful.

The lesson of the story is "DocZoidberg is much better off without women, and should have nothing to do with them, ever."

Status hearing coming up this Tuesday, where I will get the green light to move out of my house.

Tried to hang on for the sake of the kids, but there's only so long I can withstand the fear and depression of staying in a toxic relationship for the sake of the obligation of the family.

Dude, I remember why you were going to leave, and just----do it. Don't turn into all the bitter farking losers that lurk around here, who should have left years ago but didn't for some reason, and now their only reason for living is so they can fling poo at every woman on earth, and make rape jokes.

You're better off just cutting the ties and cleaning up the mess now, than turning into some of the fine examples of manhood I've seen around Fark.

/funny, my divorce didn't do that to me. And I guarantee it was much worse than most of yours were.

The time to broach your issues is when you're getting on well, as it's when he'll be most receptive.

Calmly, explain that you're exhausted and running out of hope that things can change.


Yeah, no. Doing it when your spouse is having a great time is almost as bad as when you're at each other's throats over something. The mood whiplash will leave a bitter taste in their mouth and added resentment will poison discussions for a while. Doing it when you're both a little frazzled or disappointed is probably the only good time to bring up a big talk.

It could have a benefit of them vowing to never be in that sort of relationship. My parents had some pretty horrendous years when I was a kid and I certainly carry some of those memories as lessons. But, while 'bad' in some ways, the family itself remained intact as a structure. Thinking one should always run away from the 'bad' in life (or worse, that there is NO bad in life) is likely far more harmful long term.

I am probably not explaining it very well, but having a stable structure to organzie their life around is very important to a child's well-being. Even if it is not a rainbows, unicorns 'everyone's a winner' structure. I just have to look at some of the kids in my kids' classes to see what results behaviourally when a kid has a file with 6-8 'emergency contact numbers' on it...

My posts have nothing to say about 'no child' divorces. To those I have no care or opinion.

I get what you're saying, and you're probably right in some cases. I also think there's a huge difference between a divorce where kids get caught in the push-pull between two mutual assholes and where two parents both realize it's for the best and do the work to make it easy for the kid.

That said, on the behavioral point, I should note that correlation != causation, and that sometimes, these kids who have behavior problems may have just inherited/learned the behavior from jerkwad parents. Perhaps there are some traits in the family that caused the marriage to fail, rather than the other around.

men tend to put outbursts down to feminine over-sensitivity or they simply can't understand why such a minor issue has caused so much fury and soon forget about it.

If one half of the people involved in the dispute think it's minor and forget about it, maybe it is, and the other party should just STFU and deal with why they feel the need to keep beating a dead horse.

and to that, I completely agree. my point, was a point I wanted to make sure was heard. divorces are painful to everyone involved no matter the circumstances.

but to add to your point. what if the relationship was completly farked from the get go, what if, say, the mother is a co-dependant mess that allowed herself to become pregnant in order to keep a messy relationship together in the first place, and continued to allow herself to get knocked up in order to "fix" the problem. trapping the man in a cycle?

y'know... worse case scenerio shiat?

Recently divorced.
She has two kids (previous marriage) and I managed to get away with no ill effects.
A myriad of problems that I was willing to work with her on, but we couldn't make it work.

We settled, I got the house, she got her share of the equity, no spousal support, no child support, and we still are friendly. I get along with her kids, and her parents just fine.

Sometimes two people are okay to be friends but not a couple.
Divorce isn't always the end of the world, and in both our cases we are much happier.

Wh would a child have 6-8 contact numbers on their form just because their parents are not together? You seem to have a sterotypical idea of how people with children can live seperate lives and still work together as parents. My son's mother and I are not married. A few years after he was born we both came to the conclusion that although we love each other, we could not find consistent happiness in each other. We're still cool. We just made the adult decision to realize that it wasn't working. Most of what you attempt to characterize as nobility or selflessness is nothing but fear. Many people who remain married, "for the sake of the kids" are really just cowards who fear returning to single life. Women who are scared that they will never be able to find anyone else if they have kids. Men who are scared that they won't be able to maintain their standard of living if they don't have their wives income to help or if they have to pay child support and alimony. It's not done for the damn kids. It's done for the most selfish of reasons. I've been in houses where the parents are having a huge argument while the kids are present. I have relatives who were raised in hate-filled, unhappy, unstable homes because their parents were too scared, too poor, or too comfortable to remove themselves from the situation. I don't have to have those arguments in front of my child. He has two beautiful households, two sets of neighborhood friends, two bedrooms, and he basically gets two Christmases. He's a little football star so his mom and I are active with the team, helping to organize events and holding sleepovers for the kids. He's working on his brown belt. He's learning guitar. He models in kid fashion shows becausehis mom has her own clothing line. He's totallt well-adjusted. And I don't believe that any of it would have been possible if his mom and I had chosen to "tough it out". You don't realize how much time and energy you spend when you're in a loveless relationship, but it DOES effect your kids when Daddy had a bad argument with Mommy and now he doesn't feel like playing catch. You're delusional if you're staying with someone you don't want to be with. Period.

Cerebral Knievel: but to add to your point. what if the relationship was completly farked from the get go, what if, say, the mother is a co-dependant mess that allowed herself to become pregnant in order to keep a messy relationship together in the first place, and continued to allow herself to get knocked up in order to "fix" the problem. trapping the man in a cycle?

y'know... worse case scenerio shiat?


That's pretty sexist and it suggests that a man should not be expected to control himself. If she's a mess, stop farking her...especially unprotected. Sheesh.

DROxINxTHExWIND: You don't realize how much time and energy you spend when you're in a loveless relationship, but it DOES effect your kids when Daddy had a bad argument with Mommy and now he doesn't feel like playing catch. You're delusional if you're staying with someone you don't want to be with. Period


It's nice to hear this. My biggest problem is the fact that I'm leaving and I have two young kids. My wife beats me over the head that i'm destroying the family, yet still hasn't taken any responsibility for her own actions. The kids don't hear mommy yelling at daddy, but they certainly see daddy hanging his head sadly and they know what's up.

DROxINxTHExWIND: generally known as "I've finally got that nagging harpy shrew/asshole off my back, now it's time to find some strange" Day

It's only called that until about 10:30pm, Subby. At about 10:30 on that first night is when the guy looks around the bar and realizes, "damn, there's a reason I stopped coming here". He hasn't been in so long that the cute little bartender he used to flirt with is now a married mother of three who has been replaced by some guy who won't even acknowledge him while he's waiting to get a drink. The skanks all look to be about the same age as his niece who recently graduated college and he doens't really know how to approach them because he doesn't remember his Twitter handle and they don't remember the Soup Nazi episode of Seinfeld. After listening intently to the conversations of the patrons next to him he FINALLY realizes what YOLO means. But he unfortunately tries to incorporate it into a pick-up line, telling a young girl that "you only LOVE once" and he becomes a bit of a laughing stock because the guys standing near him overheard it. He realizes that this scene isn't for him anymore and as he walks to the door a guy calls out to grab his attention. The guy is leaning against the bar with the young lady rubbing her ass against him and he says, "bar chics don't love once. Most of them don't even love one at a time. Lol". The sting of the mocking laughter sends the former husband on his way and the name of the day officially becomes, "Great. I can masturbate with the volume turned up now".


Fantastic! Would LOL again.

Cerebral Knievel: ObscureNameHere: Cerebral Knievel:
So...fark all the lazy divorcees with their self-entitlement issues. Those who fret and clutch their pearls about what the kids might go through, but decide to make them go through it anways so everyone can be 'happy'. And the lesson to the kids? When life gets tough, quit and run away.

not every divorce involves children, and sometimes, the lack of children can be part of the problem y'know.

My posts have nothing to say about 'no child' divorces. To those I have no care or opinion.

It is when children are involved and get their whole worldview shafted becuase one of the "adults" in the picture isn't as fulfilled as they feel they are entitled to be, that gets my blood up.

and to that, I completely agree. my point, was a point I wanted to make sure was heard. divorces are painful to everyone involved no matter the circumstances.

but to add to your point. what if the relationship was completly farked from the get go, what if, say, the mother is a co-dependant mess that allowed herself to become pregnant in order to keep a messy relationship together in the first place, and continued to allow herself to get knocked up in order to "fix" the problem. trapping the man in a cycle?

Because y'know, it only takes the female to get pregnant. Sorry, but I'm of the belief it takes two to tango and if some guys would think more with the brain in their skull a lot of these relatinoships could be avoided. Wrap it the fark up. And yes, I know there are levels of female crazy out there where this may not even be enough.

Don't let anyone guilt trip you over deciding to try to be happy. You have one life to live (unless you're Buddhist). Don't look back on these years with regret. The problem is that when you have spent years in a relationship where you are living with your partner it can be very difficult to picture how things could be different. Most relationships have set routines. Maybe the wife does most of the diaper changing and cooking while the husband handles most of the discipline. Sometimes you can't see yourself doing it all. But you can. I was a pretty lousy cook when my son's mom and I seperated. Thankfully, his pallet wasn't fully matured so he couldn't tell at first. Lol. I had to learn to include vegetables with our meals, but I did it. Now, you can't tell me shiat in the kitchen. I'm not saying there aren't challenges, but it is far better than staying somewhere you aren't wanted, trying to hold on to someone who doesn't want to be there.

what if she took herself off the pill., and took a straight pin to condom wrapper? and a sexless marriage is also a loveless marriage, if he's denying HER sex, then there is an issue. a SERIOUS ISSUE! do you hear yourself talking.. typing.. whatever?
my statement was not meant to be in a sexist manner, and I have seen the scenario I painted happen it real life, to disastrous consequences.
I suggest that before you start calling names that you look around you

H31N0US: I don't know what it is that makes women lose interest in sex after marriage. Either they are even more bored with repetition than we are, or they never were that interested and just use sex as a means to an end.

I miss kitchen sex.


I think this whole thing is such a stereotype because not all women lose interest in sex after marriage. If a woman stops having sex after getting married, the relationship probably sucks and always did, or she never liked sex to begin with or maybe it's the kids (I hear that can kill the sex drive but I have no experience with them so I can't say for sure). But that is no way representative of all women.

However, I will say, we do get bored with repetition. After years of the same routine it does get dull. Of course you gotta switch it up, but I'd be lying if I said it didn't lose it's luster after so many years. I don't know why there's this myth that men have the monopoly on the desire for variety.

Thankfully though...a handsome stranger overhears the guy's plight, offers to help him, they become unlikely friends, the handsome guys gives the pathetic guy a bro-makeover, the guy breaks out of his slump with a hot cougar, regains his confidence, realizes that he misses his ex, tries to rekindle the flame, and then there are a bunch of Three's Company-esque plot misdirections, and ultimately...everyone winds up with who they're supposed to be with.
