There are many different ways of doing things. Few are wrong. Most make sense. In employment, there is a mantra of "Hire slow and fire fast." It means, take a long time to interview many people for a position and a longer time still to really get to know the potential candidate. Try to become as sure as you can possibly be that the fit is right before you offer the position. And then, if later on it proves that the employee has ceased to be a good fit, get rid of them pronto. Does getting a divorce require the same approach?
When threatened with divorce, a leopard can change his stripes, with a coat of very temporary paint. "I'm divorcing you," is often met with, "But I'll change." Sometimes that change is heartfelt and well intended. The effort and duration of that change is not the purpose of this post. The veracity of the proffered change is.

This evening I had the great pleasure of experiencing Marietta Center for Advanced Academics' Evening of the Arts held at the Marietta High School's new performance auditorium.
The story of a Houston, Texas man recently sentenced to 180 days in jail after overpaying his child support has caught the attention of many in social media and I have been asked to weigh in. A while back, Mr. Clifford Hall was ordered to pay an increase in child support which was to be deducted from his paycheck. The State of Texas was to notify his employer of the increase, but never notified the employer of the new Order and therefore, the new amount. As a result, Mr. Hall's child support payments did not reflect the new court ordered amount. This caused him to slowly fall into arrears. In December of 2013, Mr Hall appeared before a Texas judge, was held in contempt and ordered spend 180 days in jail.
