The things you learn
I went to get my nails done today and in the course of chatting with the manicurist, she mentioned a friend of hers who has been divorced for about a month. Her friend is being called back into court, because she also has a new boyfriend and is pregnant with his baby (she may possibly have been pregnant at the time of the divorce, I'm unclear on the exact timeline). And the grand total of all of this is that you're not allowed in Illinois to get divorced if you're pregnant (find it under "Illinois Joint Simplified Dissolution Procedure.") Well, the law says you're not allowed if, "the wife is not pregnant by the husband," but apparently until they can prove who the baby daddy is, the manicurist's friend's divorce is like...rescinded or something.
