I would avoid dating women who sound like a character in a country song. You're lucky she didn't steal your truck and run over your hunting dog.

Reached for comment, Etheridge says she firmly believes that child support should be defined as "between one man and one woman".

Skarekrough: Marisyana: Of course Tammy blogged about it (new window). For the TL;DR crowd, she was making a lot of money acting and Melissa asked her to give it up to be a stay-at-home mom and she made her money family money so she feels she's owed back for that.

I rad the article. It was an interesting read. But it was also a good study in "Bad Decision-Making 101."

She had a career that was taking off which she chose to walk away from. That was her decision. She knew that. She knew that once she got out of it then getting back in was going to be tough.

That was her decision.

you could argue it was THEIR decision, and by making the request Etheridge was also making an implied promise ot care for this woman financially. Imagine a young married couple just out of college. Husband says to the wife "I just got accepted to this great law school, but there's no way we can afford it if you aren't working" so the wife takes a menial job to bring in income, and maybe even a second over time. Hubby graduates from school passes the bar and gets hired at some swanky firm that starts their associates at 150k a year with stock options and a company yacht. Hubby then says to wife "you've been great hon, but all that hard work has ruined your looks and besides I got a younger, prettier girl now who can suck the chrome off a merceedes hood ornament so, see ya!"

Did the wife just make a "bad choice" or, in your mind is she entitled to some portion of her husand's income given that she helped make it possible?

Conflicted...on the one hand, this dumb skank isn't entitled to s**t in my mind.

On ethe other hand, it's nice to see women can be just as vindictive and unreasonable with each other as they are with men.

I see nothing wrong with her request. Maybe she has to have cheese on her whopper. Did that occur to some of you?
