I am going through a very emotionally hard divorce at the moment, and I was just wondering if any of you would care to share your divorce stories, good or bad with me, or should I say us?

Be careful and make sure you have a good lawyer.
I got landed with $30,000 (no typo) in debt...back taxes, and credit cards. It took me 11 years to pay it off. I just payed the last of it this past February.
None of the debt was mine. I had no debt when we married. He was, unbeknown to me, opening credit cards in my name, and had his own business, put in my name and ss #, and never filed any taxes for the business for a couple years. So to protect my own credit rating, I paid it all. I did indeed protect my credit, I have a 840 score.
yeah, I got screwed. And I had a lousy lawyer. But it was an abuse situation and I was so beaten into the ground all I wanted was for it to be over. It is, now, finally.
