I'll move on but won't forgive unless there is drastic reform which I do not expect to see in my life time.

What will I do? One is to not remarry, ever. And if anyone asks, recommend the same.

It's a two step process.

First is to determine if any SS is due. This can be because your STBX sacrificed her career for the marriage/child and is now disadvantaged. It could be because she...

In general, you're entitled to what you had before the marriage. You split what you got, as a couple, during the marriage.

The exception is the family home which gets split 50/50, no matter if...

Parents divorced when I was in elementary school but in no way was I from a broken home. I had a good childhood in a good home.

This should be dealt with as a matter for criminal law.

My biggest beef is actually with the system, not the result.
