I am a divorced woman.
I am not here to wave the female activists' banner, because much to their dismay I cannot in good conscience refer to myself as "the victim".
My first trip to the lawyer after getting separated was like a trip to a first class financial buffet. Behind closed doors the plan was laid out at my fee. On the menu was child support, spousal support, pensions, extraordinary expenses, education costs and the list went on. It was all there and ripe for the picking.
"This is what you can get", I was told. It was horrible. I had the ultimate power and control over my ex-husband's future in the palm of my hand.
