Divorce - North American Style

Barry Artiste Op/Ed

We have all read about a Montreal Woman suing her Billionaire Ex Husband for Millions, though she is relatively well off with close to a 100K a year, home and a few million to boot for her and her children.  Yet when it comes to Childless couples, many do see the big picture affecting Joe Six Pack, and Jane Punch Clock.

Here is reality in what many feel Divorce Laws should change and be fair to both parties. Certainly this guy got Blued, Screwed and Tatooed with Alimony for the rest of his life.

I put it this way, no kids, well both parties better get jobs and support themselves.  Many use imaginary illnesses to get out of working. To me that doesn't wash, when even the disabled are working and wish to be treated no different than able bodied people, but on the other side of the coin, it is certainly convienient when they wish to monopolize on the fact they are disabled in order to get Cash for Life in the Divorce Lottery. 

What ever happened to equality between the sexes?  Or is that a convienent ploy that always works for a lawyer and plaintiffs advantage?

What do Now Public Readers think?

 Am I out to Lunch in what seems like a Lottery Cash Grab for Life in the Childless Couple Divorce Lottery?

You tell me!

Wayne Tippett has just two things of any real value left in his life: a 10-year-old car and a granite tombstone.

At 51, Tippett is broken, bankrupt and bunking in the guest room of his parents' Burlington home after a divorce settlement that's left him $75,000 in debt and racking up $1,000 more each month.

Today, he'll appear in court at a default hearing to try to explain why he can't afford to pay his ex-wife (the couple had no children) $3,300 a month, $16,000 in retroactive alimony and $42,000 of her court costs out of a complex case he himself still doesn't understand.
