Absolutely! I am one of those dopes who thought that we were amicably parting after 20 years of marriage (twelve years ago, so I've recovered somewhat). The choice to save a few thousand dollars being my own bad lawyer literally cost me over $250,000! I won't bore any of you with the gory details, but I certainly agree and second the sentiments.
