When I told my first husband that I had seen a solicitor and was filing for divorce, his words were..
"Well you'll have to pay me maintenance, because you earn more than me"
When he had it spelt out to him, that he was going, the assets would be evenly split, and that he was going to get a full and final financial settlement, he got too nice. Sending me Valentine's card, trying to patch things up. It wasn't until I sold my car that he had been entertaining other women in, that he realised I was serious. (I was driving a company vehicle for work) He then reverted to type, forging my signature to clear out a bank account.(Not the first time) it took me six months to get him out of the house. I had the decree absolute before he finally went. Six months of living in separate rooms, two lives in one house. Thankfully there were no children in the crossfire, and I had a busy job to keep me occupied.
