Well after months of getting along great but keeping the "big elephant in the corner" (i.e., the financial settlement on the house) off the discussion table, we had our first mediation appointment yesterday and it was a "shit show." After learning that my "number" was a lot higher than her "number" for the house - mine was half the equity, but new appraisals are needed - she resorted to insulting my character in a huge way, saying I was a con man who talked her into marrying me, and that I would and could do anything to get what I wanted. Said I was worthless when she met me and she did everything for me, and without her I would be nothing. Said I was irresponsible and basically a bad person, even though I have "some nice qualitites." It was so hurtful and painful. God divorce SUCKS. :( Whomever said it brings out the worst in people wasn't kidding.
