If you guys are still amicable, work out all the details on your own and then take the deal to an regular attorney you both trust to put the legal details into a contract. Divorce attorneys make their stash by creating conflict where none existed.

Some courts have legal advice departments or mediation if you need help and can not pay for a lawyer. States don't want you stuck in a marriage just because you can not afford a divorce. Ask the courts for mediation if you need it, most courts ask for a small fee. In the mean time I agree with BigJon, try to do as much as possible on your own. It can help with the healing process too if you are able to come to terms with your partner in a healthy way.

I missed all this. Serves me right for not paying attention. I'm sorry to hear of these divorces, both Serenity's & Nicole Marie's. I've often wondered how my wife & I managed to survive. When one of the children asked that question, I just said "After 40 years, the bumps fit."

Most of our friends are divorced. Some are re-married, some not. Some divorces were amicable, most were not. One of my colleagues at work had his cellphone programmed to dial his wife whenever he said "witch". I do know it's hard to lose a spouse. Even harder than losing a parent. You just have to take each day as it comes, and try to keep your life going. Children will help, really. They give you a focus.

Bruno and I still get each other gifts. I got him a card and a gift certificate to his fav store each year since we have been divorced. He gets me flowers and a card. We are still friends so it's easy. Getting a gift while you are still going through the divorce is tough. Maybe just a card for the first one is best. Sometimes gifts can send the wrong message (unless you want to do that) so it's a tricky thing.

A pretty, but inexpensive base-metal ring, to fill that itching empty spot on the left hand.

Actually, it depends on who initiated, no?

Hey Serenity...how about some time in the sunshine? Your state of mind is worrisome if these poems are reflective. Everything OK?

Oh, Serenity. Keep breathing, and try to keep it together - it'll be easier on you in the long run and you don't want to completely freak out the kids. It'll get better; honest, it does. Just keep breathing.

Serenity...here is another song that should be on your list. Peter Gabriel: Don't Give Up

##############################
In this proud land we grew up strong

we were wanted all along

I was taught to fight
taught to win

I never thought I could fail.
No fight left or so it seems

I am a man whose dreams have all deserted

I've changed my face
I've changed my name

But no one wants you when you lose.

Don't give up - 'cause you have friends

Don't give up - you're not beaten yet

Don't give up - I know you can make it good.


Though I saw it all around

never thought that I could be affected

Thought that we'd be last to go

it is so strange the way things turn.
Drove the night toward my home

the place that I was Dorn on the lakeside

As daylight broke I saw the earth

the trees had burned down to the ground.

Don't give up - you still have us

Don't give up - we don't need much of anything

Don't give up
'cause somewhere there's a place where we belong.
Rest your head
you worry too much

it's going to be alright.
When times get rough you can fall back on us

Don't give up
please
don't give up!


Got to walk out of here
I can't take anymore

Going to stand on that bridge
keep my eyes down below.
Whatever may come and whatever may go -
That river's flowing
that river's flowing.
Moved on to another town
tried hord to settle down

For every iob so many men
so many men no one needs.

Don't give up - 'cause you have friends

Don't give up - you're not the only one

Don't give up - no reason to be ashamed

Don't give up - you still have us.
Don't give up now - we're proud of who you are

Don't give up - you know it's never been easy

Don't give up - 'cause I believe there's a place

There's a place where we belong

To life! To life! L'chai-im!
L'chai-im, l'chai-im, to life!
If you've been lucky, then Monday was No worse than Sunday
was,
Drink l'chai-im, to life.

To life, l'chai-im!
L'chai-im, l'chai-im, to life!
One day it's honey and raisin cake,
Next day a stomach ache,
Drink L'chai-im, to life!

Our great men have written words of
Wisdom to be used
When hardship must be faced;
Life obliges us with hardship
So the words of wisdom
shouldn't go to waste.

To us and our good fortune
Be happy be healthy, long life!
And if our good fortune never comes
Here's to whatever comes,
Drink l'chaim, to life!

To life, to life, l'chai-im,!
L'chai-im, l'chai-im, to life!
Life has a way of confusing us
Blessing and bruising us,
Drink l'chaim, to life,

To life, l'chaim!
L'chaim, l'chaim, to life!
A gift we seldom are wise enough
Ever to prize enough,
Drink l'chaim, to life!

God would like us to be joyful
Even though our hearts lie panting on the floor;
How much more can we be joyful,
When there's really something
To be joyful for.

To life, to life, L'chai-im!
L'chai-im, l'chai-im, to life!
It gives you something to think about,
Something to drink about,
Drink l'chai-im, to life! l'chai-im !
Quod scripsi, scripsi.
