Hindsight is 20/20

I have a good friend who is going through a bitter and nasty divorce.

His ex-wife is fighting him for more alimony, more child support and sole custody of their kids.

More than any other feelings, he feels regretful for ever marrying her.

"I should have known by the signs early on," he said.

Back when they were planning their wedding, she threatened to call the wedding off if he wouldn't leave his best friend out of the wedding party and make her brother the best man.

"Plus, I knew on our wedding night that I'd made a mistake," he added.

"What do you mean?" I asked.

"Well, we got to our honeymoon suite and I really just wanted to have a quiet moment together to toast champagne and celebrate being married. But she wouldn't do it.

She sat there on the bed and counted all of the money we'd gotten. That took her about an hour.

Then she recounted to make sure she had the number right, laughed happily and went to sleep."

THIRTYSOMETHING (!!) year old Asian American New Yorker, lawyer, amateur musician, curious girl taking a bite out of the Big Apple. Don't mess with me - I'm short and I look demure, but I carry a big purse. And I've just embarked on the journey of married life in Manhattan.
