The secret diary of a single parent bloke
I’ve just had a furious phone call from Kat- she’s received a letter from my solicitor. “I thought we’d agreed to get a quick divorce off the internet?” Well, I’ve decided against it. “They also want me to admit to adultery!”
She seems to think that if she admits adultery, then someone will point their finger at her, chanting “it’s all your fault!” At this point, I really don’t see what the problem is, but she’s still refusing to admit what has been obvious for so long. She seems to think that she’ll somehow be labelled if she admits it.
I point out to her that buying her out of the house is linked to the divorce, and if I have to prove adultery, it could take years during which time she would be responsible for half of all of the mortgage payments etc, and now that the solicitor was involved, I’d make sure that she paid her share- for once!
It seems as though the threat of making her actually pay towards the bills has worked, and she agreed to sign the form and admit to adultery. Funny how the threat of actually making her contribute has changed her mind!
She finishes by saying that she has never cheated on me, and only signed the form to speed up the divorce. “Now that I’ve signed it, when will the divorce come through?” she asks. She seems to be in a hurry.
I’ve always wondered at what point a divorce gets nasty, I suspect that I may have just found out.
