Divorce is something I can discuss as I am one of the afflicted. Looking back on mine I can see that the lawyers simply cut themselves in on your life savings via making you mad at one another. And that just means there is less for you to split.
I'd wager that In A-Rod's divorce many of the things released that seem so inflammatory are being released in legal filings by the lawyers to raise the animosity level between A-Rod and his "not-soon-enough-to-be-ex-wife."For all we know the lawyers encouraged the $100,000 shopping spree.They sure will write about it. Lawyers get paid to write filings and for the time they spend on a case. More animosity means more filings and the more legal time spent and that means money to the lawyers. People don't settle their divorce until they calm down. With all the excitement here that won't be any time soon.
