I believe many of us have responded to you on another post entitled "what is your opinion." You have made yourself very clear that you do not favor SS.

You seem to want to merely argue with everyone over laws that are in place and would take legislature to change. While I realize this category is Political, I think it would be more appropriate to be debating current political events or even new case law as they effect the topic.

We get that you do not approve of Spousal Support. Do you, yourself, have to currently pay SS? It is always helpful when responding to someone's questions, to know where they are coming from. Why don't you tell us something about yourself for a start? Are you new to the forum or did you merely change your name?

To answer your question: If I felt "threatened" by someone with different views I certainly wouldn't be on the ODF. No I certainly don't feel threatened by you or anyone else for that matter.

Girl power? What is that supposed to mean?

soonfree!! is on a distinguished road

Janibel - I agree, and i think I commended arabian on her many posts and her insight into these matters. I am sure they are of great value to a great many people. I was simply replying to her pointed comments. Refering to the fact that I have commented on some posts (an ancient one by mistake), and she then felt the need to say " He very well may be. He's obviously trying desperately to round up a posse (sp?). Desperate people do desperate things I guess.".
I am can't imagine why she felt the need, other than she disagrees with my point of view.
I do not mean to offend you, her, or anyone else. However, i do believe that the laws that the judges are upholding are unfair and blatantly wrong. I think they are no better than the laws that once prevented women from owning property or to have a vote. Bottom line, just because a law exists doesn't make it just.

Really, its great that this forum provides the service it does, and helps those with the mutitude of questions they haveMy views may not be popular with some, but I think I have a right to share like everyone else. If more people thought like I do, the lawyers and judges would be unemployed. People wouldn't feel so confused by the whole process because there would be no need for it at all.
Why not? Because again, necroposting is in bad form.

Good for you for going back to the archives to read, but please don't clutter up the board with old, dead and outdated posts.

Tad bit grandiose?

Bottom line, divorces are specific. Applying generalizations to every case because things didn't work out the way that you wanted them to for you or your new partner is ridiculous.

My new partner pays a substantial amount of SS to his ex-spouse who is educated and who works full-time because they mutually agreed that she would make career sacrifices to raise their children. He wouldn't share your views...not all men or women do. Get over it!

There's no need to bump every old thread to rage about SS, you've made your point very clear. Try accepting that not everyone agrees with you and move on.
