    Default Should bankruptcy wipe out debt to ex-spouses?

    Personally I say no. The family courts are clearly totally corrupt and beyond logic. Any man who gets married deserves all he gets.

    And if you have no money you cannot pay - so what is the issue?

    I think what all this and other threads on similar subjects point to is DON'T WHAT EVER YOU DO GET MARRIED.

    Unless you are marrying someone much wealthier than yourself.

    Typical IT geeks, generalising from their own experience.

    Generalising from the many many threads about "I'm getting divorced and now I'm financially utterly ****ed forever" actually.

    After 2 years following divorce 40% of children have lost contact with their father. 60% overall.

    Family courts operate gender apartheid.

    Though if you got divorced they would be doing your kid a favour by refusing contact.

    Because as soon as he gets some money he will have to start paying. He's probably just treading water at the moment.

    Actually I knew what mine was like before I even married her, so really I'm totally to blame for the situation in that respect.
