Is That The Soundtrack To "Rocky" I Hear?

Next Tuesday is our first meeting in court for the divorce, I received the paperwork today.

Included in the paperwork was the brochure for the "class" that we will be required to take on "How Divorce Affects Children", only $65 each!

If it all shakes out that I am, indeed, required to take this class, the teacher will regret ever seeing my face in the room.

I will be the one waiving my Order For Protection, the charge sheet from St. Louis County, and letters from both therapists for both children.

How Does Divorce Affect Children?

How does molestation affect children? What part of this situation is "normal" enough to fit inside the pigeon holes offered up by this class? Do I have to sit through a four hour discussion of custody and visitation information? Do I have to learn how daddies have a right to their children too?

If I have to go, then stbx had better be required to go. And I'll be damned if I won't try to find out when he's going. So I can go then too.

Cuz we all need a little comic relief right? We all need a woman asking about how molestation affects children while pointing to the pedophile sitting in the corner.

Oh baby! IT IS ON!!!

*Update* DAMN! There is a box to check if the divorce involves abuse...I'm guessing that it is to prevent exactly what I was speaking of. Don't they know that A LOT of people watch Jerry Springer??? Haven't they read The Lottery? Don't they know the cathartic nature of a mob with torches?

Some people just don't know how to take lemons and make lemonade.

I wonder how many people like you had to attend that effing class before the decided to put a check box on the form?

I'd like to attend that class, myself! For the comedy, of you, I think it would be fun to stand up and say, "well, he was inviting strange woman and men over to the house when I was out of town (but the kids were home), and meanwhile, his deviant son was victimizing my ya think this marriage can be saved???? For the sake of the children???"

In fact, now that you mention it, I'm a little pissed that I don't get to do something like that--strictly for the opportunity to point out an absurdity...
