This is your Captain speaking……………….welcome aboard fuckers.
Back on May 4th 2009, I entered my first damn post where I said I would chronicle my journey out of marriage. Since then I have been stashing away cash, $5 here, $20 there into what I call a F U Fund. This is because my wife and I had already separated once and got back together due to finances. Since then, we have eliminated all joint debt and even some of our individual debt. I needed my stash of cash because although I do have friends that would put me up if I was out in the cold, I do not have any family that I could shack up with for a few months while I got my affairs in order. So I had to plan.
I planned for the worse. I planned that the day I told my wife I wanted a divorce that I’d have to leave that day. That day came and went this week, prior I had been looking at apartments. I knew exactly where I would go.
However the worse did not happen. Although I would compare my situation to the situation in the Gulf of Mexico and the BP oil spill. The situation may seem under control now, but it could go to fuck at any minute.
Some things did go as I planned, I was the bad guy of course and she claimed to be the perfect wife. She claimed I was just using her and that she was the only one contributing to the marriage, blah, blah, blah.
While I play an asshole on the internet, I do have one or two good qualities even though being civil can get you screwed over. Currently we have agreed that this will not be a hasty, unguided split. However, please remember the BP situation. It could blow at any moment. Right now the time frame for my departure is Nov-Dec. I am still preparing for the worst.
You are now free to move about the cabin.
