1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Sorry 'bout that.

    My mother jokes that she's the "last man standing" among her friends. Not quite but most of them seem to have gotten divorced. Even among my younger age group, two of my friends got married and divorced in under two years and I have another that looks like he might head that way. This last one sucks cause they have two young daughters. Oh wait, I just remembered another one of my friends also got divorced.

    I'm a divorce lawyer by day and even though it supports a reasonable standard of living for me and mine, I have to say to say that there is no such thing as an "easy day," even after almost eight years. Nothing ceases to surprise me about the multiple ways people find to treat their spouses like shit.

    Thoughts and prayers.

    Fear of this is one reason I, and supposedly many people my age, haven't gotten married.

    I thought the thread title said "Divorce sex" so I read everything with that in mind. "It's better than the alternative"... @_@

    Mark, I really hope this is not about your divorce, but I fear that it is.

    True divorce story. A couple who live in the same apartment building decided to get married. She lives on the 5th floor he lives on the 8th floor. They decided not to move in together prior to getting married. They get married and end up having a post reception party in her apartment. 10:00pm rolls around the the groom says "Ok, its getting a little late, why don't we head up stairs to my place?" "No, I'm having fun we should head up later." She responds. 11:00pm rolls around and he says "Its getting late, they can continue partying down here, but we should head up." "No, No I'll go up when I'm ready." She says. Midnight rolls around and this guy isn't having anymore of it. He says "Come up now or don't bother coming up at all!" "I'm not coming up and now that you've said that I won't be coming up." she says. They wait the year and file for divorce under voluntary separation.

    Another true story. A couple gets married at the Courthouse. After the wedding the groom takes his bride downstairs to the cafeteria for lunch. During lunch he realizes that this isn't the woman for him. Goes upstairs and looks for information for filing a divorce.

    The first person I told that my wife and I were separating after 19 years of marriage was my mentor. I wasn't quite sure how he or others would react. He looked me in the eye and said, "Keep one thing in mind, younger women like older men".
