An Account Of A Family Divorce

By Brandon G. Carlyle

Recently, I became aware of a tragic divorce. A dear friend of mine had been in a pre-med undergraduate program in the University of Pennsylvania, one of the finest universities in the country, and was pursuing a career in medicine. This young man came from a home with very little means, but even though times were tough, his family helped support him as much as they could and even saw him graduate college.

While studying in college, he became close with a young woman from a wealthy family who was very interested in this boy’s story and was greatly inspired by him. She was so infatuated with him that she offered to do whatever it takes in order to see him complete medical school and is willing to financially support him through his studies, as long as he marries her.

The offer was too good to resist because this was an attractive, young woman who was so in love with him and was also willing to help him reach his life-long goal. Of course, they got married, and life went as planned for about three years.

After three years of marriage, her father’s business began to downward spiral until it hit rock bottom. He was not able to support his daughter and son-in-law anymore because of the rough economy. As such, she demanded from her husband to leave his studies immediately in order to support the family.

With only two years of studies left, the husband refused to do so and told his wife that he could not leave his studies. He said that if she took upon herself to provide financial support until he finishes medical school, she should keep her promise and go earn the livelihood herself.

Unfortunately, she was not interested in bearing the financial strain on her shoulders for even two years, and she sought a divorce. She wanted total custody of their one child without visitation rights for the father. She also demanded total control of all assets.

He was absolutely devastated because she had proven that her part of the relationship fit her only when it was comfortable for her, and she ended up causing more damage to his studies than actual help. Most of all, he could not understand what he had done for her not to want him to visit their child.

Fortunately, he amassed enough strength to fight the madness, and he contacted a wonderful family court attorney who took him by the hand throughout the whole case. He reversed it and sought full custody and won, and today he lives together with his parents and child in their home. Hopefully, he will complete his studies this year and will move into his new home with his child.
