Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
So a good friend of mine officially declared 2010 the year of the buttfuck back in January, and sure enough - he has been (metaphorically) buttfucked.
The short story: buddy started dating this chick when they were both working at the same job. She gets pregnant not long after they start dating. Kid is born, courthouse marriage occurs, and then some time in late 2009/early 2010 she starts seeing another guy on the side. Buddy finds emails with a lot of damning conversations in them. He gives her the ultimatum of him or me. She agrees to stop cheating but in fact goes right on doing what she was doing.
So I don't know what to tell my friend. He's been unemployed for over a year and in February is shipping out for basic training with the national guard. His fear at this point is that if he seeks out a no-fault divorce, she's going to flip her shit and turn it into one hell of a legal donnybrook, which pretty much guarantees that he'll be kicked out of basic until things are settled with the courts.
Has anyone been in a similar situation? What can I do to help my friend, aside from buy him drinks and say things like 'fuck that bitch, you're better off without her'?
