Do you have an ex-wife who acts like her position as “Mother of the Children” places her in some sort of exalted position, ever above reproach or questioning because she happened to succeed at breeding with someone?
Is she officious, demanding, always claiming that she has a lock on what is in the best interest of the children (even when partying on child support money)?
Does she get outraged when you fail to follow her edicts as though she were some sort of deity?
If you find yourself answering yes to these questions, then we have two things to say. One, congrats on getting a divorce.
Two, our condolences.
You were married to a Golden Uterus.
And that is the problem. Normal divorces are kind of like movies. They start, the story plays out, the ending credits roll, and then it is OVER.
When you divorce a Golden Uterus, the end credits can take decades to actually end. To her, her position as the all holy Mother of the Children immunizes her against criticism for anything she does as a mother, even if she is giving Mommie Dearest a run for the money. If her immanence does it, it MUST be the right thing to do.
Please join us today, April 30, 2015, at 11:00 AM Pacific Time, 1:00 Central and 2:00 Eastern for Episode #2 of Say Goodbye to Crazy, with Paul Elam and Dr. Tara Palmatier.
That last bit is pretty important, since once you get in to a Golden Uterus it can really be difficult to get out.
