    Buddy of mine's been through it at age 40, and now at 50, he's back on top and doing better than ever.
    Hang in there, work hard and don't do anything stupid, and you'll be OK....just have to get through the hard times.
    If ya think about it, it's the hard times that make us who we are.
    Best of luck to ya.

    Since you've already been thru this once before you know this low is only short term. Getting out of a marriage that you weren't happy in is always the positive.

    Keep your attitude positive, go with the flow, and around the next corner is your pot of gold.

    This to shall pass. I have been in you situation twice also. The first divorce just about killed me. The second we stayed friends. Greener pastures are in the future, just be patient.

    Hang in there buddy. It all comes around. Been married and divorced twice myself. Got the science of it figured out. Got married the first time pretty young and it didnt last long. Waited 20 years to get married again. That lasted twice as long as the first one.

    So following the basics of math i need to wait 40 years to get married again. So in another 19 years ill be back on the market.

    Probably be dead by then.

    Whew. My figures may have saved my butt on this one. LOL.

    But take care and hang in there. I know what you're dealing with.

    Well I am not sure what the laws are there where you live. In Iowa "as long" as you are still married it is 50% to 50% here in Iowa.
    I was instructed by my "attorney" that I could sell every thing and as long as I give her half, everything was good. Well I didn't cause I wanted to do the "right" thing.
    Well as it turns out YES I could have sold it to a friend for $5.00 and gave her $2.50. The friend would sell it back to "me" after all paperwork and court dealings were done for a $5.00 profit. And according to the judge, "he said" as long as we were still married I could do anything I wanted to "our" stuff cause it was still my stuff too. BUT she would be entitled to 50% of what ever I sold it for.
    Trust me I will remember if it ever happens again.

    Been there and done that in 2010.

    Stay strong and keep in touch with the good folks here...They were a lifesaver for me in 2010 and I mean that literally.....they kept me from going so far as to eat my gun during my darkest days of 2010.

    I got lucky that year too...Met my Donna and we married in Feb of this year.

    It's been quite a ride Paul, I know that 1st hand with you. The messy parts over with, move on with what you have and let it go. I did that with my 1st wife, gave her all of it. Took my belongings, my bike and truck, as many have mentioned it will pass. If you need something keep my # handy, I know we will talk again. Take care of yourself my friend and here's to a new, better beginning

    In my state you would have gotten a more even split of property too. You could try selling everything and offering the wife half the proceeds. You could also get some decent debt going on the joint accounts which would be hers to share. I wonder if a better lawyer could help you out? You may feel that you're doing the right thing for the kids by not insisting on a fair split but they will probably be alright even if you don't get taken to the cleaners. Fight for your rights, get custody of the kids and see if your wife lets YOU keep the house, car, bank accounts, etc.

    Get mad, then get even - 50/50!
