  • Why doesn’t he just leave her if things are so bad? Sounds like a way to get rid of her for 6 years if you ask me. He’ll get the house, the kids, and 100% of everything, at least until she gets out. This could start a whole new trend in the way couples separate and divorce. .

    Heaven forbid he helped with housework or wonder why he was kicked out of the bedroom, having a wife doesn’t immediately mean the house is clean and sex is on demand. Here’s hoping he gets a female judge ?
