In my practice, I see at least ten divorces a year. Without fail, women who initiated divorce proceedings for what I would consider less than obvious reasons, tended to believe that their ex husbands would be just fine doing family activities and essentially being there but not being there. Their wake-up calls happen within the first year where suddenly daddy is taking the kids, and having nothing to do with the ex-wife. Then suddenly daddy is in a new relationship. Then suddenly, daddy is getting re-married and the kids are part of this new family.
The women are literally blown away. They examine their reasons for the split. I have had many an ex-wife say that if they had to do it again, they would have never divorced. They realized that they were incredibly selfish, and wanted things their own way. Some said that they were encouraged to split by their divorced friends. I, myself, had my wife cut her former best girlfriend off, she was suggesting to my wife that she could do better, and to that end wanted her to accompany her to a cougar bar. I told this friend that she was too damn ugly to attract guys at a club and wanted my wife as her wing-girl so that she could at least get down with my wife's cast-offs.
One or two said that they thought that there was a pool of "better" men out there, only to discover that their ex found the "better" woman, and has remade his life, while she is alone. There is a growing pool of 40-50ish women who literally threw their husbands away for less than good reasons who have lived to regret their decisions.
