A straight friend at work is in financial trouble
He's an elderly man who sounds like he married a golddigger 30 years his junior. Anyway, they're probably getting divorced. He says he doesn't want any material things ("Let her have it all, I don't care"). The complication is that he's considering bankruptcy because of huge credit card debt and surgery bills (he makes the same as I do - $11.00/hr.- but gets some social security and a couple other small checks per month). She has a good job, and lives in another city now.
Question: should he declare bankruptcy before filing for divorce, or get the divorce finalized before filing for bankruptcy?
This "golddigger" went for the big brass ring, didn't she?
lol r1, I was thinking the same thing
The woman probably ran up his cards. He should turn the tables and sue her for alimony. Women live off men all the time. It's time for men to get their share.
When she met him she was obese. He paid for her bariatric surgery, and was her caretaker through all the subsequent agony of skin removal surgery, etc. Now she's a size 2, and got a great job of her own.
I recommend he do it immediately.
"It's time for men to get their share."
Poor, downtrodden men!!!
Yes R6. I'm glad you agree. Things have gotten out of hand. Men need to start standing up for themselves.
Sue her for alimony while she's at MichFest!
If he makes only $11 per hour, how can he afford a decent attorney who can ask for spousal support?
This sounds like a dazzlingly sophisticated couple.
You really run in rarefied circles, don't you, OP?
An older guy won't ask for alimony but he should. I would take bankruptcy as soon as humanly possible. She doesn't have to declare...unless the debts are in both names.
If he has any cash on those credit cards, take it and pay the attorney. You do not need a great attorney for bankruptcy, it isn't that complicated.
By the way, fuck you r10, dumbshit. Obviously you have no idea what has been going on in this corporate owned country.
He makes $11/hr and she is a 'golddigger" LMAO!
Straight? Elderly? Zzzzz zzzzzzzzzz zzzzzzzzzzzzzz.
"You really run in rarefied circles, don't you, OP?"
And you're on Datalounge at 8pm. Have another drinkie-poo, party girl.
Tell him never to trust a great big fat person.
