Breaking Up Is Hard To Do…

And I'm definitely not going to miss your morning breath...

And I'm definitely not going to miss your morning breath...

Particularly if Your Partner’s an Asshole.

Yes, that’s actually the title of our chapter on Love & Romance, or, more accurately “I Used to Be In Lust But Now Even Your Facebook Updates Make Me Want to Vomit In My Cereal.” In that chapter we discuss what happens when good love goes bad. As we learned, there are a lot of unhappy people in relationships, and we’re not just saying that because we’re bitter. (Or maybe we are, so what? Still true.)

In any event, we give a lot of advice to those who have recently broken up from answering the question as to who gets to keep the ring if an engagement busts up pre-wedding (the dude), to should I anonymously slag my ex in online forums? (No, too obvious and easy for you to get caught), to do I have to let my ex’s parents see our kids after the divorce? (Probably yes, even though they’re responsible for raising a horrible child themselves.)

We also offer financial advice to consider like canceling joint credit cards before your ex goes to Paris and rings up $100,000 in charges which you’ll be responsible to pay. (In that one instance, it sucked to be A-Rod.)

But in Saturday’s New York Times, Ron Lieber offers a really outstanding piece on the financial ramifications of divorce. And if this is something you’re considering, you should click this link and read the article because it offers a terrific number of protections and a check list of things for you to consider while you’re likely more concerned with licking your failed relationship wounds.
