Any really bad stories of (too) messy divorces in Taiwan?

Heard that the law favors the woman here heavily..

Well I shall let you in on my own . IT was ridiculously simple. And it can be as long as both parties are in agreement. My then wife chose the 5th day of the New Year when the govt offices start their first work day of the new year to drag my ass down to the local , I cant say the name, next to the local fuzzshop. They had festive candy on the tables and the little 20 year old clerk had a hard time understanding that we wanted to divorce. We may hv been the first couple to divorce that year in the ROC , on such a normally festive occasion.

All we had to do was buy this 2nt (really 2nt) piece of paper. We both fill in our names and id card number (or passport number in my case) and then we went back up to this little lady and she asked each of us if we wanted to divorce and we said yes, examined the piece of paper in front of her, made us put our chops on it and sign our names (no witnesses needed unlike marriage) , and asked us if there was any contentious issues. We said NO and she stamped the piece of paper and that was it. D.I.V.O.R.C.E.D . Must be the simplest divorce in history.

Then the now ex wife wanted to invite me to a taiwanese dinner (which i really didnt feel like going because I was a bit upset this whole divorce thing ya know...I thought it was true love you see, silly me) and proceeded to go from A to Z one more time about how much of a failure I was as a husband. I didnt want to mention again that SHE was having a year long affair ....HELLO??? to try to save any sense of normalcy. There can be normalcy in lunacy you know?

So yeah, divorce can be easy in Taiwan.

I guess its easier when your marriage never made it to the second anniversary?

Total BS. The laws in the States favor wimmen far more than the laws here which tend to favor men.
Life is a bitch and death is her sister.

Very true; for example: who gets the kids?
