You guys, you guys!!! I went to the beautiful, wonderful, magnificent lawyer today! And he says that I can totally just up and tell Wedded Asshole to get the fuck out of my house. That I don't need to do some fucked up "let's be adults and come to a mutual agreement" dance because it's not gonna happen. And I have GROUNDS. Hells, yeah, I have grounds. And he said that if Wedded Asshole refuses to leave, then I can take my babies and go get a nice little apartment or rental house somewhere, and I am under no obligation to help with the house payment (which has been my worry if I move out because I can't afford half the mortgage + rent). And either way, he's going to have to pay child support, so HE'S worlds better off moving his own self out.

This is me right now:

So, ummmm....... how soon after a separation can someone start dating? Not me, obviously. Asking for a friend. A friend who wants fun grown-up times. But has no idea to go about getting a date anyway, so it's probably moot.

Also: GIVE ME YOUR YAY/ STRONG WOMAN/ DIVORCE IS AWESOME GIFS!!!!
