I know a topic is hot when before I hit my desk in the morning at least 5 people ask me if I saw Jon & Kate discuss their pending divorce on TV last night. Since I have never seen the show (Jon & Kate Plus 8) my answer was no but it seems to have an unholy fascination, even for divorce lawyers. I understand the Gosselins publically renewed their vows last year so perhaps that was the kiss of death
I am not sure if it is the reality show media circus or the adorable plethora of kids, but there is no mistaking the fascination. This article from www.smartmoney.com provides a vehicle for a discussion of some issues about divorce which may not ordinarily get raised.
