Default What did you do to celebrate? (once you stopped the bleeding)

I'm stuck paying 'indefinite' spousal support so the bleeding may never end.

It gives new meaning to the term, "til death do us part."

My husbands lawyer just sits and laughs when he reads the correspondence from the ex and now her lawyer. I would go crazy. And that says a lot since I deal with difficult people all day.
When I was in college I did a co-op at a law firm (was taking a legal diploma). One of the family lawyers was doing duty counsel at the local courthouse and asked if I wanted to tag along to watch, so I did. That one day was all it took for me to completely swear off ever doing family law. That is the day that business law became my destination and I haven't looked back. The clients, the other lawyers and their clients. They were all just, ugh.

If it wasn't out of necessity for my own situation, I'd never have bothered getting informed on family law.

I was never married, so there was no celebrating that. I do look forward to not paying c/s, which I figure is anywhere from 6-7 years away. The first month I don't have to send the ex money, I am going to buy a bottle of 18y/o scotch and a nice cigar. Then I am going to sit on my patio and enjoy the financial freedom.
