Decree Nisi Today

#1
I got my Decree Nisi today, and am celebrating by entertaining a lady in the confines of my pied a terre this good evening. I won't be drinking because I'm riding the Suzuki to Germany early doors tomorrow. I was wondering what would be a suitable celebration for when my Decree Absolute gets issued in 6 weeks time. It has been a long time and I have forgotten what I did the last time I got divorced.

That is IF your decree absolute gets issued in 6 weeks time. If she is after any assets from you - capital or income, or especially a share of your pension - she will issue proceedings and the court won't grant the absolute till the money is sorted out. Good luck!

We have been really grown up about this and have already sorted all financial stuff out and all that kind of b0llocks. And the added bonus that I become a single parent in Sep when my daughter comes to live with me here in the Shot. It goes without saying that she is barred from Cheeks till she is 14.

Glad you've got it all sorted. And nothing to do with me, but does that include a court order saying (in legal terms) "It's all sorted"? I have heard nasty stories of people coming back after a number of years saying "oh, we never sorted the money out and I'm entitled to ..."

i think once the divorce is complete, there is no further claims on any future earnings except of course child support.

Nah.

Fuck up once, fair enough, but to continue creating similar havoc in society, without the wherewithall to finance it...

... the Chinese have the right attitude; a little discrete van outside the court (for instant execution of a death sentence).

There speaks a cnut who doesn't have a clue WTF he is on. If I do need any classes, it should be on Target Recognition. I now know that marrying because a woman has lovely t*ts is a bit daft.

daleRoch (Are you the white man from there). Are you in the Army and if so, how long? Run a poll if you want and ask how many Army personnel are divorced.... It might have something to do with never actually being in the same country as your spouse for very long

Hope you had a suitably cuddly evening.

Oh, and have a nice trip on the Suzi this am.

You can't be all bad, if you're a biker.

WTF are you on about GURU..

How many years with RSST ? 7 was it not . So you would have been in Germany or UK for those hardship tours. Driving around Germany picking up Det commanders for not greasing their wheel nuts or having tatty det folders - High up there with patrolling the streets that is.

Or the 2 or 3 years sitting on yorr arrse in Italy , no deployments and a 5 day week with 1/2 days when it got hot.


Or are you talking about the times with 264?

ok ok boys enough of the legal and general advice this is the NAAFI FFS, so Guru did you wet your length, and most importantly were you any good?
did you take pictures and can we see them? is she still in your room tied to the bed?if so can you keep her there for 2 hours and i'll pop round?

Old Bloke, I believe you have me at a disadvantage, but you seem to forget the 6 years in EST. That involved being away more than a little. (Try 15 months out of 22 in the UK team) You also seem to not have a fcuking clue about RSSST (note 3 S's) and seem to be confusing it with RSIT. Believe it or not, mate, away from home is away from home, whether it is looking at stuff in Bosnia, or patrolling type stuff.

And WRT to wick dipping, I shall retain my dignity... (no, I bloody didn't)

Disregarding the PM .

For such a obstreperous individual you are talking it large. EST, give it a break . Lets see "Off to check on the local Inf in their Warriors". Not too sure so dig out the last report and depending on how they looked after you give them a Gold star or not.

Glorified LTI at most on quite a few.

So EST in Germany and UK . Away for the week Monday to Friday, home at the weekends with few duties as you are away all the time.

Ok you were away from the spouse for a few inspections but most of the time you were in the same country.

So don't large it up. IMHO

You seem so interested in me and we obviously know each other, but you won't tell me who you are. Fair enough. The point that you seem to be totally oblivious to is that separation is separation whether it is the Sqn Clerk in Shaibah, doing the pay, or PARA SAS Commando, leaping out of planes with a dagger between his teeth. If you think a two year posting to an isolated NATO det with a new born child is good for your marriage, think again. The posting, from a work POV was easy peasy, but don't confuse that with the stress that being so cut off from the rest of the Army and fmily and friends is easy at home, because it isn't. The fact that my EST days doing pointless and boring Inspections was not a hard posting, takes nothing away from the fact that I was away for 16 months out of 24 in the UK team and monday to friday at least two weeks a month in the Germany Team. Then the 6 months in Aus, and the 18 months on the over 37s' adds up, plus Telic. I had over 600 days LSSA (which doesn't include the Mon to Fris') and I know that there are a LOT of serving soldiers have had it worse than me. There has been no attempt in this thread to big up my job, and you seem to be confusing plain old time away with a tough op. Try asking other "easy" jobs like the PRE team, or the Docs inspectors, or CDT. There are a lot of jobs in the Army that involve a great deal of time away, but don't involve "hard" work.

EST was a waste of 6 years of my life, I don't dispute that the job is pointless in the main. But it is nothing like an LTI, so maybe you aren't as smart as you think you are. If you'd like to know the difference, and they are large, PM me.

Guru, Congrats on the amicable divorce. Something not many of us manage to achieve. Especially once the solicitors get involved. Even more congrats on getting the custody of your daughter.

Out of interest, I note Hallveg's comments above. I have heard from at least one member of the team that he has tendancies that should lead him towards this thread...

So what do you think he was gonna do with this woman of yours for two hours? Discuss the art of flower arranging perhaps? Or do you think he was hoping that you might still be there?

JESUS GOD IN HEAVEN MAN!
i can honestly say i think the_guru is a decent fella, but i would rather wnak! even if i was a bender and his old arrse was the last hole/goal on the planet!

but having said that, i would do him long before you!

Oh just to reply the 2 hours was taking the 1hr and 58 min it would take me to get to his house into account. And then for the last 2 i would give her the best 20-30 seconds of my life!
