What to Divorce When You Are Divorcing: Crazy Talk

In a landmark Supreme Court case, the justices were unable to nail down a specific definition of “obscenity” for the purposes of determining whether certain language is protected as free speech by the First Amendment.  However, Justice Stewart, speaking on behalf of the court, uttered this now famous phrase, “I know it when I see it.”  Although I know it when I hear it, I too have struggled to come up with a precise definition of what I mean by crazy talk.  But here are a few clear examples:

Talking to your child(ren) about your ex’s late child support payments is crazy.

Talking to your child(ren) about your ex’s late alimony payments is crazy.
