hmmm... there comes that time where you start fooling yourself... start thinking: ok this time is going to be different. Then the dealer starts showing its slimy dealer nature and its like a spouse who knows how to push your buttons into immediate anger or disenchantment.
I'm pissed because the inevitable happened. My brother and his wife are getting a divorce. Everyone could see it happening from miles away before they go married. I'm happy that they're apart, but things are getting nasty in regards to custody of their kids. I don't know what to do - my parents hinted at me taking time off and going to san francisco to assess whats going on.
I balked at that idea - but in reality they're both in their 70's and old so its something I really have to consider. My wife is worried about potentially lending out money for legal help for my brother - honestly I am too. my brother and his ex are by nature volatile people who will fight to the death for the sake of fighting. my gut is telling me not to get involved.
