Fertility Treatments, Canceled Abruptly: $35,000
Down Payment on a Large, Luxury Car for the Anticipated Larger Family: $9,000
Payments Made on Large Luxury Car Until It Was Sold: $7,000
“Family Vacation” Trip to Paris (since “we won’t have any more trips after child is born”): $15,000
Medical Bills Resulting From Insurance Cancellation: $4,000
My Legal Bills: $13,000
His Legal Bills: $20,000 (estimated based on subpoenaed bank statements)
Final Tally: $103,000
This figure omits some items, like the cost of health insurance I was forced to pay after he canceled the insurance I received at no charge through his employer ($3,000); as well as the $30,000 I had to pay him to remain in the house.
You get the idea.
Staggering! Thank goodness it’s over!!
