C is for Contemplative

The legal system we enjoy is amazing. Just contemplating a purchase with a girlfriend in NJ can leave you on the hook for 1.1 Million, and it's not just millionaires who can be robbed for the sake of a woman's 'desired lifestyle'.

I was recently in court watching a regular Joe being taken to the cleaners, and one of the apparently legitimate arguments was that, although the ex-wife's income had hugely increased since the divorce, she had 'contemplated' having alimony from the man, and should not be deprived of that simply because her income had increased.

No words were spoken as to the man's contemplations of a life that was not a form of slavery.

Contemplation is apparently more important than actually earning the money in the first place.

Welcome to NJ
