$20K doesn't really even move the needle in what I imagine your savings to be. It's nice and all, but it doesn't seem like that much money to me. Certainly not a reason to divorce a spouse.

That is $20K PER YEAR, net of taxes and fees. You must be in the Federal Gov't budgetary office if that is not real money to you!


I don't get why you would let what seems like a middling amount of savings change a core relationship in your life.

He wouldn't. It would be a divorce on paper only. Doesn't anyone actually read a post before replying to it anymore?
