Default How divorce is like being a POW

Being in the middle of a court active divorce has many similarities to being a POW such as:

- you are surrounded by hostiles
- you don't know who to trust
- you're trapped against your will
- if you try to escape they will find you
- Torture is a reality
- your basic human rights are defiled
- you are stripped of all your possessions
- men, women , children are all treated with equal disdain

And...

-not everyone makes it out alive!

- a POW's actions are frustrated if not consistent with compliance.

This observation is lifted from an interesting article by Cathy Meyer. Here's the link: Emotional Abuse is a Type of Domestic Violence

Totally agree with this. Especially if you have kids.

And if caught at the other end, what is the consequence?

In my case I feel like the protagonist from Orwell 1984. The system is so warped that it flies in the face of common sense, and that I'm about to be sent to the brainwashing camp.
