So, that's all fine and good, but tell us - how many happy and giggly divorced parents do you know?
Are you under the impression that getting a divorce means you are no longer in a relationship with a former spouse? When there are kids involved, the ex-spouses continue to have a relationship (often a court mandated one) about visitation and whatnot. There's still all the work of raising the kids to do, except now everyone hates each other and your kids are hanging out with the wrong crowd because home life sucks.
Doesn't really sound like the best choice for someone who is tired of being mean and grumpy.
