Terry, I agree with you 100%. Not sure what Carole is saying.
Years ago, I spent 10 years with a man - the state I was in didn't acknowledge us even as common law married, but we still needed an attorney and written agreement when we went our own ways - because of how much was entangled - and there's no other way I would have done it looking back. Had we lived in Colorado or some of the common law states that have the laws as they do - we would have been considered legally married and it would have been binding in all states.
Just as the laws of the state you get divorced in are binding on you - when I was divorced from my ex in WI - he quickly started dating and next thing I knew he was engaged and getting married. He didn't think he had to follow the WI law of not marrying for a full 6 months after the divorce is declared in court. They had a big wedding - then had to get married again a few weeks later to make it legal.
Laws are funny - and binding - at often you have no clue about them :)
Oh, and Molly, you'll be better off - cuz it will all be binding - hopefully it won't be difficult or long.
Smiling is contagious - try it!

Wow. By filing together, you mean you checked the box "married"? The law you called "dumb" may have kept you out of jail for income tax fraud. You should be grateful it was there!

Molly, you can certainly do this on your own. A friend asked me why I wanted to go it alone, rather than have the company of a guy. I told her just like 'Pretty Woman" I say when, who.... I want the freedom to do exactly what I want when I want to and the way I want to. At least for a while. I want to be selfish for once in my life!
My ex and I had tried rving together. We just didn't travel well together. We both had our own ideas about things and I was always the one who compromised.
Alaska is also on my list. So much I would like to see and that's towards the top of the list.
