When a woman who deferred her dreams to make a home and raise children for the man she married, has to suddenly got out into the workforce again after being at home for seventeen years or so. She gets shit work, and his crafty lawyer finds many ways to screw her out of the child support check on a month to month basis. More often than not, she cannot generate the money to keep the home, is screwed out of any accrued pension funds, and is forced to subsist till the end of her days. The source of her misery is usually a combination of two things: A horny little secretary or nurse (hose hog opportunist, I think you call them), and a man who is going through the "change of life".
Popular wisdom says she gets the house and the car and the easy life, but statistics prove women who survive divorce almost invariably experience a lower standard of living, while the men's goes up. You've heard of the well documented pay inequity in this country, haven't you, titmouse?
