There is a pattern in frivorce proceedings that I have seen many a time. It is that the soon to be ex-wife lies. I am sure that husbands lie also, but from the anecdotal evidence that I have seen, it is the woman who does this to large measure. Often the lies take the form of different types of abuse, to her and/or the children.
Of course this is done to gain leverage in the proceedings, but both the Church (Ten Commandments) and the Government (Perjury) have rules against this, and for good reason. Perhaps women feel justified because of the past supposed wrongs of the Patriarchy. Or maybe they believe that since they are lying to themselves and the world about why they are divorcing, then “what is one more lie”? Furthermore, there is never any punishment for them due to lying, so why not?
So if you are a fella going through a frivorce, expect the lies to come forth. It is standard practice. Perhaps abuse accusations should be boilerplate text in divorce proceedings. It can’t be good for a nation for its Divorce Courts to be considered to be such a joke. And an unfunny one at that.
If anybody thinks that I am being unfair here, do say so.
Naturally enough NAWALT applies.
