When we are fighting during divorce, we feel like we are getting dragged through the mud for months, even years, wondering if it will ever end.
We’ve all heard it before. “She doesn’t see how great I am!” or “Why does she only go out with jerks?” or maybe even “She put me in the Friendzone!” What I am describing is, of course, the “Nice Guy,” the whiny, self-entitled, beta male.
