    Well, after forcing me out, she is telling the parents of my younger son's friends that I simply moved out. While technically correct -- I did move out on her demand -- just telling these people I moved out implies that I was the one who abandoned my family, and two of the parents have acted very coldly towards me since. I don't want to air out all the laundry out of a need to protect my kid, so I am pretty much stuck. She is one dishonest bitch, and her telling this partial truth is part of her dishonesty.
    This is why I support honor killing in the US.

    Hmmm? That sounds more like payback than honor.
