Big D

It was and wasn't Valentine's day when the U.S. Supreme Court refused to review a verdict awarding plumber Johnny V. $750,000 in exchange for loss of sex with Sandra V.

Oh, and there was a baby girl involved. But it wasn't his work with the pipes that was responsible.

And Ms. V. claimed she only stayed around as long as she did before beginning an affair with a local millionaire (did we mention the rich, older guy?) for the children. Who maybe JV didn't care about as much as he should have ...

...because it turns out that one reason to stay in a bad marriage is not "for the children" as so many people claim to. One reason to stay in a bad marriage — if you're not willing to do extra work on your relationship with your kids — is for you, as there is new evidence that divorce may distance dads from their teens.

Now, you may ask yourself what doesn't, but do you really want to end up as Texas father Bob, sire of Hilary and Haylie Duff, who was penalized another $100,000 in addition to the $20,000 he is already paying his soon to be ex- during the $1 million dollar proceedings, and also has to face the accusing faces of his daughters in support of their mom (who admits living off the celeb sisters for the last five years) during the trial?

** Dads divorce moms, not kids. **
