So I got divorced. I am a dude so of course I got fucked. Finances are tough. I bought a used car. I love it! But this car has almost 290,000 miles. It is a Jeep Cherokee Grand Laredo. I plan on driving this fucker for at least 50,000 miles. I got it dirt cheap. I hate loan payments. I own my car. It takes me where I want to go. That is all that matters to me.
Yeah, property settlement was a nasty shock to me, my ex had not worked for 15 years and I thought, oh well, she will still get 50% I will just have to wear it. Hmm, she got 70% I did get the kids, and she never contributed a cent to their upbringing before or after the divorce.She got house, boat, car, all furnishings and equipment, I got an unfurnished unit with a mortgage. But, I did get the kids, 20 years later, I have 2 young adults I spend a lot of time with. HAHA, I won, she is a lonely old lady in a big house, sadly she is able to travel around the world every year and has more money than she can spend. But like you, I am happy with what I have.
