To which you replied, So, essentiallly, she wants to spend 1/3 of her net income on luxuries?Good gravy.Hum. Put that way, it sounds better than my situation with my ex-wife. She required 100% of her income (take home was almost exactly 1/2 of mine) and required me to cover all of the on-going bills, including the mortgage, utilities, groceries, medical and children's expenses.In the end it wasn't enough. I just regret wasting 10+ years of my life putting up with her and letting her destroy our finances and poison my family relationships.Despite the financial burden of divorce and child support, I (and my children) would have been much, much better off financially and emotionally had I divorced her when I first understood the problem instead of repeatedly trying to "compromise" and "live with it".Oh what I wouldn't give to relive those 10 years of my life...- JoelWho now occasionally gets to laugh at the debt collectors trying to locate his ex-wife... :-)
