(This isn't football related. But I didn't think it fit well anywhere else.) Briffault's Law claims another victim: He filed the original divorce petition. When men do this, it's because the wife has become a monstrous bitch and refuses to live up to the promises she made in her wedding vows. He wasn't cheating or beating her. She just became incorrigible. He wanted out and he wanted to divide everything equally. Beth, knowing that she has complete control of the situation, countersues for divorce and demands EVERYTHING. She takes his brand new house, the kids become her kids, and he becomes her slave for life.
