I do not think this word means what you think it means.
Family court is like one of those daytime hatefest shows (Springer,
Povich, etc). If you are male you don't want to be anywhere near it.
seriously glad I'm out of the kid raising business. If I were in my
20's right now and faced with the possibility of raising teenage girls
I'd castrate myself and join the monastery.
I can't count the
number of times one of our sailors would find out he was getting
divorced (not always due to his own actions, but to be fair not always
not either) and then get hit with a child endangerment charge as well
just as an added "f**k you" to keep him away from his kids. Most of them
had the "wink wink nudge nudge" implication that if he didn't contest
the divorce/custody hearing that charge would quietly go away.
One of them told me once upon a time that when he heard all the things he was supposed to have done he cursed himself
for a perverted sonofabitch, so he knew he didn't have a chance but to
let her have everything she wanted - and he had all boy children. Talk
about rape-rape, he really got his ass handed to him in divorce court.
And it happened all the time.
Makes me wonder how we are even able to propagate the species.
As an aside, I'll spare you the rant on "blaming the victim" here.
