I have to say, a lot really depends on who you marry. My first marriage ended after 15 years because I was a stupid idiot. Still, my ex-wife did not take advantage of the situation, which she could have. We parted on friendly terms, she took her stuff, I took mine, and that was that. We had no children, so it was a simple divorce. We didn't even get lawyers.
My current wife and I pretty much see eye-to-eye. But I hold no illusions about her. She is about 180 degrees opposite from my first wife, and if it came down to a divorce...well, I can't say what might happen. It might become evidence against me in a court of law. :diablotin
