So yesterday, my blogger friend The Happy Hausfrau remembered a column I’d written “Divorce? Hey You’re Doing It All Wrong!” where someone took her to task for cut and pasting Tom Cruise’s head on to a family photo (in place of her ex). I thought it was funny. Some awful commentator, who we will call Sniffy Lady, did not. Apparently, Happy Hausfrau was Doing It All Wrong. You know, scarring the children with her humor. That kind of thing. (You can read my defense of mockery here.)
(And before any Sniffy Ladies and Gentleman comment here, I point out that ridicule has its place before you get to Meh, and you do it in the confines of your support network, not in front of your kids.)
Anywho, this whole kerfluffle got me to thinking — so what is the RIGHT way to divorce, anyhow? Who better to ask than a bunch of chumps who’ve been through it, or are currently going through it.
So, today I want to know about your divorce hacks. The whole process sucks donkey balls, of course, but how did you endure it? Photoshopping celebrity heads on to your ex? Regular massages? Voodoo dolls?
Got any advice for the divorce newbies out there?
