Holy Cow that table DEFINITELY has a face for radio! Let me just say this about my perception of what's going on at the courthouse. It seems that more and more men are the primary conservator by court order and more interestingly by agreement of the parties. I can't point to any specific data but it's just my perception.

Did the same. Worked great. The progressive woman's movement frankly has done more harm to women than good in my view.

Before the "progressive woman's movement" Whisky's wife wouldn't have had the option to work outside the home at any point, after the kids were in school or otherwise, aside for a few menial jobs. More women are getting college degrees now than men.

Of course, Mrs. Duq has an advanced degree and works from home (at least until I get home), so I get the best of both worlds ...

yeah, but she's a burgeoning corporate bigwig from there. And her degree is in one of those dirty liberal pursuits.

In Canada, the default position in divorce court is all property is community and to be split down the middle and joint custody for children. The way the law is written it takes substantial reason for the court to vary from that position.

Prenups re. property, some limits to spousal support, and custody of children from previous marriages are legal, of course, and enforceable.

So yes, in some jurisdictions she might well have to pay. And properly so.

For me personally, I love having a wife with a career. Sure that means splitting up the kids and housework more and you have to have good communication about who is responsible for what and when, but it isn't that hard. But every situation is different. Whatever works for each family is the right thing to do.

Of course you love that. You're a whacked-out liberal who's hell-bent on ruining our society by corrupting our family structure.

Duh!

For maybe about 6 months a years or so ago, I had a full time housewife, for about the only time in my marriage of 34 years and two days. It was wonderful coming home to dinner on the table, the house cleaned, the laundry done and folded, the groceries bought. It was not until the end of the first month that I was horrified that I had to pay for all of those service by giving my wife a reasonalbe chunk of my paycheck every month since she was not making any of her own money. There is no free lunch.

When these subjects (and polar diatribes) arise, I always think of the lady I worked with who wore great diamond rings. She explained, ``I divorced well."

This is probably the most high profile divorce case in British sport. Ray Parlour, who played for Arsenal and England, got divorced in 2004. In addition to the two houses (worth over £1 million), lump sum of £250,000, and child support payments, he was ordered to pay her over a third of all of his future earnings too. If she had been with him for longer (they were together for 7 years), she could have been entitled to 50% of his future earnings.
Her case was based on the fact that she apparently steered him clear from a life of partying and alcohol that was common with a lot of Premiership soccer players, and thus helped him have a better career.

In my opinion, it was a ludicrous ruling, but I'm sure some people thought it was fair. Here's the link: Footballer's wife wins landmark divorce deal

My wife decided recently to go back to work after some 20 years. She doesn't have to wear a business suit but she does look good in them...

Anyway, anybody know of a good cleaning service/lady in NE Dallas?

I get the money from Dave, and then hire a housekeeper.....

he really wants me to get a job, but that is so difficult to do when we take 6 3 week vacations a year.

If I were you I would place an ad and hire someone directly and not a service. Individuals do better work, and they don't have the corporate constraints of soap and hotwater conservation. As well, then the person gets a little more cash in their pocket, which they richly deserve.

In Boulder where I live (Boulder, CO) I pay my neighbor to clean for me 4 hours per week, and I pay her under the table $120 + a tip. Yeah, I know that is illegal, but she really needs the money, and will not just let me give her money. She does a super job and costs me less than a service.
