MERRY HOLIDAYS FROM 'BULLETINS'

Holiday Thoughts on a Snowy Afternoon From a Lawyer's 'Form' Book

No lawyer’s office would be complete without a good ‘form’ book.  The Law is the only literary place in the world where plagiarism is a good thing.  While recently perusing a legal form book for other things I ran across the following.  These are actual ‘form’ clauses from the Divorce and Separation chapter of 7 Am Jur Legal Forms 2d 414 (1987).

 

90:34  Tolerance of friends and relatives

 “(Blank) admits having been intolerant of (Blank’s) relatives and friends, and agrees to accept such persons into the family home in a gracious manner, to carry on normal conversation with them and to treat them with respect consideration, and courtesy.”

 

90:35  Consideration for the other person’s feelings

 “Husband and wife admit that on occasion they have been inconsiderate of each other’s feelings and have selfishly disregarded each other’s wishes, desires, and needs.  Therefore, they agree to be more understanding and considerate of each other’s feelings, wants, wishes and desires.”

If only I had sent this to Tiger Woods a few snowy afternoons ago................
