It's Cheaper to Keep Her?

The irony of staying in a marriage for the purpose of having two incomes yet living as though you are single within the same home.

Divorces are not what they used to be.  They're so easy to get.  You dont need to prove adultery, you dont need to prove any fault on the part of your spouse (unless of course you want to be divorced right away and avoid the separation requirement), all that's needed is a one year separation, and you qualify to get divorced.

People are out there cheating on one another just to give their spouses an out. What is the world coming to?

Not to mention, because of the economy, people are choosing to stay with one another for financial purposes but living in completely different places within their home and living as friends, not as a married couple.

This has become a wide practice throughout the United States and im tempted to say even the world.

People have recognized that two incomes, in most cases, is ALWAYS better than one. Though financially it may seem easier to just play house, mentally and physically, it will take a toll on you.

Think about it, if you're living with an individual who you are married to, maybe you cheated on them or they cheated on you, may have been some physical abuse, emotional abuse, and more.  Yet, for the money, people still choose to live under the same roof.

I guess it all boils down to what you value most...your sanity, or your finances. Arguably, your finances can tug on your sanity when they arent in order, but you get the point.

Learn to cut your losses, or get some counseling...seriously!
