Wrongful Divorces and Just Desserts

Wrongful Divorces and Just Desserts

As a practicing psychologist, I can tell you that there are a few very good reasons to get a divorce.  Simply becoming bored with an “old hat” partner and then finding someone new and exciting is not one of them. This is exponentially more true if children are involved.

I have blogged more seriously on the topic of divorce in he past and I invite you to go to the search box, on the right side of this page (near the top)  where is reads: “Search This Site“. Then type-in the word “divorce “and press enter on you key board.

The following is a “mildly sadistic”, but greatly entertaining exercise in fantasy that I hope you will read and get a few chuckles about.

Enjoy this funny fantasy, but don’t encourage anyone to ever try it! I expect, in reality, that it is a fraudulent act and punishable under the law.

Still, just for fun, we can enjoy this funny story knowing full-well that many things that are really fun to think about are either illegal or unethical.

On the other-hand, be careful not think about such fun things too much. They can become all too tempting…..like the one below!   ; – )

The following was sent to me by a dear friend and  as mutual friend of ours would say, “This one is a hoot!”


“On the first day, he sadly packed his  belongings into boxes, crates  and suitcases.   

 On the  second day, he had the movers come and collect his  things.  On the third day, he sat down for the last time at their beautiful dining room table, by candlelight; he put on some soft background music, and feasted on a pound of shrimp, a jar of caviar, and a bottle of spring water.    When he’d finished, he went into each and every room and deposited a few half eaten shrimps dipped in caviar into the hollow center of the curtain rods. He then cleaned up the kitchen and left.    On the fourth day, the wife came back with her new boyfriend, and at first all was bliss.  Then, slowly, the house began to smell.  They tried everything; cleaning, mopping, and airing out the place. Vents were checked for dead rodents, and carpets were steam cleaned. Air fresheners were hung everywhere. Exterminators were brought in to set off gas canisters, during which time the two had to move out for a few days, and in the end they even paid to replace the expensive wool carpeting. . . Nothing worked!    People stopped coming over to visit. Repairmen refused to work in the house. The maid quit.

Finally, they couldn’t take the stench any longer, and decided they had to move, but a month later – even though they’d cut their price in half – they couldn’t find a buyer for such a stinky house.   Word got out, and eventually even the local realtors refused to return their calls.

Finally, unable to wait any longer for a purchaser, they had to borrow a huge sum of money from the bank to purchase a new place.

Then the ex called the woman and asked how things were going. She told him the saga of the rotting house. He listened politely and said that he missed his old home terribly and would be willing to reduce his divorce settlement in exchange for having the house.

Knowing he could have no idea how bad the smell really was, she agreed on a price that was only 1/10th of what the house had been worth … but only if he would sign the papers that very day. He agreed, and within two hours her lawyers delivered the completed paperwork.

A week later the woman and her boyfriend stood smiling as they watched the moving company pack everything to take to their new home …… and to spite the ex-husband, they even took the curtain rods!”
