Lessons in Divorce (No. 36)

A client finalized her divorce this week. Seemingly seconds after everything was signed, sealed, and delivered her now ex-husband demanded she ‘get in touch’ with me and get ‘some changes made.’ Out of habit, and in sheer disregard at what had just occurred, she almost did it until, with a little prompting from me, she realized she was under no compunction whatever to do … well, anything she didn’t feel like doing.

That reminded me of this great line from American Beauty. A perfect post-divorce lesson.
