Divorce or dissolution of marriage is the final termination of a marriage, canceling the legal duties and responsibilities of marriage and dissolving the bonds of matrimony between two persons. In most countries, divorce requires the sanction of a judge or other authority in a legal process to complete a divorce. A divorce does not declare a marriage null and void, as in an annulment, but divorce cancels the marital status of the parties, allowing each to marry another.
Divorce laws vary considerably around the world. Divorce is not permitted in some countries, such as in Malta and in the Philippines, though an annulment is permitted. The legal process for divorce may also involve issues of spousal support, child custody, child support, distribution of property and division of debt, though these matters are usually only ancillary or consequential to the dissolution of the marriage. In some jurisdictions divorce does not require a party to claim fault of their partner that leads to the breakdown of marriage. But even in jurisdictions which have adopted the “no fault” principle in divorce proceedings, a court may still take into account the behaviour of the parties when dividing property, debts, evaluating custody, and support. In most jurisdictions, a divorce must be certified by a court of law to become effective. The terms of the divorce are usually determined by the court, though they may take into account prenuptial agreements or postnuptial agreements, or simply ratify terms that the spouses may have agreed to privately. In the absence of agreement, a contested divorce may be stressful to the spouses and lead to expensive litigation. Less adversarial approaches to divorce settlements have recently emerged, such as mediation and collaborative divorce, which negotiate mutually acceptable resolution to conflicts. In some other countries, like Portugal, when the spouses agree to divorce and to the terms of the divorce, it can be certified by a non judiciary administrative entity, where also can be served an Electronic Divorce since March 2008. The effect of a divorce is that both parties are free to marry again. (see bigamy) In cases involving children, governments have a pressing interest in ensuring that disputes between parents do not spill over into the family courts. One way of doing this is through the encouragement of a parenting plan. In the United States, all states now require parents to file a parenting plan when they legally separate or divorce. The subject of divorce as a social phenomenon is an important research topic in sociology. In many developed countries, divorce rates increased markedly during the twentieth century. Among the nations in which divorce has become commonplace are the United States, Canada, and Scandinavia. Japan , France, and Italy retain a lower divorce rate, and it has decreased recently.

    Let’s talk about my bitch wife and my divorce. A little back ground,we date for 4 years,she wants to get married,I say you gotta live with me for 2 years first,if you still want to fine. This was so I would not end up posting here!

    I buy a house half way between my work and her veterinary school,the middle of BFE. I get a bad back injury busting my ass as a construction foremen,paying all the bills. She graduates,wants to have kids,only ever work 2 days a week. I tell her if we have kids,I can’t be a weekend dad,I did that as a kid,it sucks. The bitch says I don’t believe In divorce .
    Fast forward 6 years, I’m still working in great pain using morphine to ese it. I’m driving 3 hrs to work 8. Last year she starts to go out with her single friend to clubs,then Vegas a few times. Stupid me I say have fun,fuck I’m so beat with my back,cooking all the dinners etc,did I mention she works 2 days a week?
    Well the night before thanksgiving she tells me at 1200 midnight that she does not want to deal with my depression and addiction! Says there is no chance for reconciliation. I dump all my pills in toilet tell her nothing is more important than my family,tell me what can I do? Nothing!
    So she asked me to leave,i did with my .40 cal planning something stupid. She does not try to stop me nothing. I check in to the nut ward for a week,suiside is cowerdly and my sons need me. When I get out,I’m moving my stuff out,hook up my I pad to the computer and boom up comes a dating site,I sign up,find here profile advertising for casual sex. I look around the house,box of pregnancy tests,1 missing,box of condoms with special prolong lube (for 2 pump chumps) 4 missing. Now I had a vasectomy and I really do not need prolong lube,quite the opposite.

    I confront her,she says it is none of my buisness,that I’m an adict(at this point I’m cold turkey off Meds 15 days,in pain.) that SHE THOUGHT ID KILL MY SELF! Now I have a life insurance policy that pays 300K for suicide .!

    The bitch was hoping I’d off my self so she could fuck her way in to the sunset. Clubbing every night at 37.

    Wow, Jason! what a crazy lazy bitch! Women are all middle school on the inside, petty, mean girls.
    Mine is throwing fits right now, telling the kids that I’m bitching about them being in the shower too long.
    What I’m bitching about is that her lazy fat ass can’t remind them do get out in 5. I rush them through in the morning-np- but it’s a BIG fucking problem for her.
    Jason, How many times have you heard of a dude doing something really dumb after a conversation or an event with their wife? It happens a lot.
    Dudes -listen up- IGNORE the Bitches they are alllllll crazy.
    Jason, just walk away- sell her shit if you can, any diamonds, gold etc, fuck up her make up too.
    Mine demanded that I get a VC, I said no way! we don’t have sex anyway.
    mean bitches.
