The Ugly Side of Divorce

I’m not ashamed to admit that I watch cheesy WB sitcoms, but I certainly don’t classify The Game as one of these shows. Yes, it is a WB sitcom, but it is far from cheesy. It’s actually really funny. The characters have a comedic element, but they seem like people I’d actually like to hang out with. Melanie and Derwin actually remind me of myself and Tosin (without the baby mama drama of course).

One of the story plots revolves around Kelly and Jason’s divorce. Their divorce is just getting plain nasty. The unfortunate part about it is that they are forgetting that their innocent daughter is in the middle of their issues. Arlene Kock, a child family law specialist, hits the nail on the button with her insight on divorce. Arlene Kock specifically reports on the ugly side of divorce and how children can be affected from these battles. Although Kock discusses California spousal responsibilities, the information on her blog helped me to get a more critical view of Kelly and Jason’s divorce trials. My advice to Kelly and Jason: they better split amicably for the sake of Brit-Brat.
