No More Frivorce Rape: British Judge Says Paying Women After a Divorce is Ludicrous
It seems Anglo men finally have an advocate in the form of Britain’s most senior family court judge. Sir James Munby has called for the abolition of male slavery and forced wealth transfer payments to women brought on by the divorce-industrial complex. In a speech to lawyers given just before his forthcoming retirement this summer, Munby said it’s ludicrous that men still have to pay women after a divorce in this age of the Empowered™ YouGoGrrl. The Daily Mail writes:
Britain’s most senior family judge called for an overhaul of marriage law yesterday, saying people would one day laugh at the idea that a man had to support his ex-wife for life. Sir James Munby called for equality for divorcees when maintenance payments are settled by the courts, highlighting ‘absurd’ divorce settlements that are unfairly biased against men.
Isn’t it funny how women eschew equality when it comes to treating men equally or assuming equal responsibility for their spendthrift lives?
Munby is right the forced wealth transfers are often destructive to male lives, as the Anglobitch blog recently highlighted with the case of a surgeon whose life was financially and then legally destroyed after a divorce. The surgeon’s plight was highlighted by a prison guard who grew tired of seeing good men thrown into modern day debtor’s prisons because they couldn’t pay their exes. The prison guard wrote:
The very worst case I saw as a prison guard was a surgeon, yes an American surgeon who was one of the most respectable guys I ever met, hard working, worked until 2 a.m. 6 days a week to save people’s lives. With all the work hours, his wife got “lonely” and started sleeping around, eventually having 2 kids that weren’t even his as he found out later.
And then she filed for divorce so she could take the surgeon’s money, blow it on cocaine and stupid luxuries for herself without doing any work herself (that’s the real destination where the “child support” money goes) and sleep around with her favorite Chad of the week, all on her hard working surgeon ex-husband’s money. She won an insanely high judgment in a US family court, millions of dollars in child support and “alimony” that the poor surgeon would have to pay.
Since by the court’s judgment, “she should be entitled to maintain the same standard of living after the divorce”, even though this greedy gold-digging Anglobitch is the one who filed for the divorce to steal from her hard-working husband who was actually saving people’s lives.
Of course, the surgeon couldn’t keep up with the insanely high cost of the forced wealth transfers, was promptly stripped of his medical license and for failing to make court-ordered payments, and eventually thrown into prison.
This is the very type of injustice Munby seeks to eradicate from the court system. The judge went on to assail the presumption that men are in charge in modern marriage, which is of course a total farce because women initiate the vast majority of divorces and hold all the cards in the legal system.
He said it had taken too long to rid the law of the Victorian notion that men were in charge in a marriage, and the law was marked by “hypocrisy and lack of intellectual honesty”.
Munby also said future generations will judge the current situation harshly – a legal system featuring unchecked female supremacy in family courts.
“Past judicial utterances we now find almost absurd should serve as a terrible warning of how history will, in due course, come to judge the present generation.”
Meantime, the Anglo world continues to practice overt misandry in the court system, and the culture at large. Nowhere else in the world are men trodden upon by the legal system as in the Anglosphere. While Munby’s call for justice for men is refreshing, don’t expect reform anytime soon. Lawyer Jill Kirby offered vociferous opposition to the judge’s call to end the female gravy train. Kirby called for Munby’s resignation:
“He wants to remove fault from marriage break-up, which is unfair to a faithful partner. This is a highly political speech. He should step down.”
It’s obvious from Kirby’s comments there’s a long road ahead until female responsibilities (like assuming financial responsibility for their own lives) catch up with the pace of their privileges.
