Hell Hath No Fury Like a Divorced Man With a Blog

psycho ex wifeHow does that song go? First comes love, then comes marriage, then comes the baby in the baby carriage? Well if this Bucks County, Pennsylvania couple's love story had a second verse, theirs would go something like: then comes divorce, then comes custody battle, then comes the husband's blog about his evil ex-wife, then comes the lawsuit in the lawsuit carriage. Forty-two-year-old Anthony Morelli started ThePsychoExWife.com to blast his ex-wife, and a judge has recently ruled that he needs to take it down.

Ah, sweet sweet love. While Morelli may be down, he isn't out: This stand-up guy is appealing the judge's order claiming that the ruling prohibits his free speech.

The couple has two sons together, ages 10 and 12, but I think Anthony's totally forgotten about them and is really spending all his energy getting back at his ex, and getting his way with his blog.

At what point does someone stop loving someone and start hating them so much? He married her after all, is she really that bad? The hate that has consumed Morelli is alarming and destructive. If he can't even see, even the littlest bit, why his blog is a bad idea, then I think we've lost him for good.

I'll stay away from the legal issues here because I think there are deeper problems. Sure, he may be Constitutionally empowered to blog all day long about his former flame, but it doesn't make it right, or OK, or even mildly tolerable. He's only looking out for himself and is willing to destroy his family before he destroys his blog.

But fear not, he's started a new site, SaveThePsychoExWife.com, where you can donate to his cause. Fighting for the right to bash your ex-wife is not cheap, apparently.

I think we've all been tempted to slander someone who's done us wrong, but most of us know that that only makes us look bad, not the other person. Whatever Morelli's ex may have done, she's looking like the winner in this lose-lose situation. Pretty sad.

Have you ever publicly bashed your ex to get revenge?

I never have publicly bashed any of my exes. No, they weren't the greatest people that existed but I'm not going to make myself look like this desperate, trashy woman wasting my time putting them out there.

No I haven't...I don't even care to talk about him. But even if I did...why..I'm not going to lower myself.

I have told you ladies about my issues with my ex, I have talked to my aunts about my issues with my ex but I would never bash him in front of other people...that will be going to his level and most of all I would never do it publicly for my son's sake.

Oh, I totally understand your situation and we are here for you with dilemmas. You aren't on here putting him on here on blast and spending all your time on him. I know you're better than that. You are a class act. =)

No.

If I ever have the need to, I'll probably do it anonymously and not use his name.

I doubt it'll come to that.

Well, this is a mom's forum, though. And one of its purposes is for support when we need to vent about something

And it's not like you're doing anything close to this guy.
