Coming Right Up: Gay Divorce Court

On a dark and stormy night (yes, it actually was) my [Lesbian] niece and her partner got into a huge argument and her partner became physically violent. The police were called, my niece had to get stitches, etc. That was the straw that broke the camel's back for my niece so she moved out. They were done.
As I pointed out above my niece makes a lot of money and her annual income is about ten times what her partner's is. Her partner filed a lawsuit demanding half of my niece's assets because they had been in a domestic and business partnership for 10 years. There were a lot of assets-brand new 8,000 sq ft. house with pool and summer kitchen they had built as a 'wedding present' to themselves, two rental houses and a beach house plus all the other stuff. My niece, needles to say, didn't want to give up half her assets so she went to her attorney. Her attorney told her that seeing as everything they owned (with the exception of my nieces 401k) was owned jointly and they had a joint bank and credit card accounts that basically they were in a business partnership (if nothing else) and, yes, she would have to cough it up. The lawyer said she could try to fight it but all she'd be doing is paying a lot of attorney fees to achieve the same result. The fighting over the money and the houses has been ugly but the end is in sight. Posted by: Nahanni In Gay Marriage: Just Do It!

Hey, niece, welcome to Life.

Everybody gets just about what they want. It's just, they don't recognize it when they get it. It doesn't look the same as what they had in mind.

I love a Deity with a sense of humor! (Or, be careful what you wish for!)
