They'll devolve into a bit of a battle over assets, rarely kids, but more often than not if a couple comes in together he has a bad day because he makes the least money off of them.
He said one couple, collectively after their divorce, sent him a Christmas basket one year... Basically they wanted out and he helped navigate the legalities of it, and everyone was happy...
He also had a story of a woman who had to consult with two private investigators for her husband cheating. The first one she hired was the woman he was having an affair with.
8. At least in Maryland people assume because the spouse was cheating they will be able to get more money in alimony from the judge then they would have gotten otherwise.
9. Father is a divorce lawyer.
He says that every single man that comes in initiating a divorce says the same thing "Well, it happened to me, I don't know how, but she's not sleeping with me anymore, should I just divorce her?"
And he said they are always all blown away when he tells them that is the single most common reason why men initiate divorce, like, they think they are 1 in a million, but it's basically all of them.
I've asked him before:
Women generally initiate divorce due to lack of income,he cheated on her, or he hit her or the kid(s).
Men generally initiate divorce due to lack of sex, wife cheated, or the wife hit husband or kid(s).
He said the 2nd two on each one are pretty rare, that it's mostly just the first ones.
