that feeling in your stomach when you see your ex?
The feeling that I'm about to vomit because the sight of her makes me ill? Yes, yes I do.
I don't even answer the phone when she calls.
My ex is over $15K in arrears for child support, this past Tuesday I went to court to collect. I was more anxious about being in the same courtroom with her than the impending proceedings. She was a no-show and the hearing was reset for mid December.
If I never see her again, I would be okay with that.
Similar problem here, graybeard. Only he lives several states away now, so we rarely see or hear from him. He comes to see the kids once, MAYBE twice a year for a weekend - so I sort of have to be civil for their sake 2 days out of 365. No nervousness though, more like seeing red.
Rarely see/talk to her. Been 15 years since the D. Boys are all over 21 now. We've both remarried. I do feel sorry for her new husband LOL.
Why do you think I want to buy a gun?
I don't know the feeling, and I think it would make me feel sad. I have been very, very fortunate in my marriages. My first wife and I grew up next door to each other. I never knew a day when she was not an integral part of my life -- she was always there! She decided at four we would be married. OK. Then she died several decades later. I thought I would die. Then I met my second wife. They are both very different women, but each in her own special way have made my life a blessing with and in their presence. Divorce must be horribly hard on adults and particularly children, I would guess. This thread makes me feel sad.
Nah, only when I see my image in the mirror.
they don't just take it out of her paychecks?
If you don't show up here they just do the proceeding without you.
My $20 payments a week will probably stop soon since my kids father went to rehab last week.
It can happen. My ex got several grand behind first when he was marginally self-employed (nobody to take it out of his paycheck) for 2 years, then when he was unemployed and living in his daddy's basement for a year after his "business" failed. Go figure.
Now he's so far behind to Uncle Sam I'll probably never see the arrears, even though his employer for now takes the current payment out of his check. When he quits or gets fired, I won't see any again for a while until he gets another job and I figure out where.
The system is not perfect.
