I like how so few people have commented on the letter itself, as to deny Mammone III the attention he seeks. I will comment here, however, because I knew Jim rather well through the '90's - unfortunately.
Having come from a broken home himself, Jim is setting the stage for his insanity plea...
Jim was proof that people can come from a broken home and make a good life for themselves. I remember first meeting Marcia and thinking how far out of his league she was. Marcia is beautiful, Jim is not. Marcia is sweet, Jim is strange. Yet Marcia married Jim and gave him a family. Jim has no one to blame but himself and his love of alcohol, narcotics and hallucinogens for losing his family. Funny how he didn't mention that in his 'Godly' letter ...
Through a bit of honor, some courage and a commitment to his children, Jim could have worked towards making a good life for Macy and James IV despite his differences with Marcia, and through his own experiences of a broken home. Instead he took a knife to their throats as they slept.
James Mammone III is a coward and a fraud. He did not deserve Marcia nor the children she gave him, and they most certainly did not deserve him. God has an answer for James Mammone III.
But I GUARANTEE that if MEN did not face eminent loss of children 90% of the time, that if EQUAL time and fair distance was LAW from day 1, where children are involved.... Half of women would not go floozey and would WORK to make relationships work and the divorce rate would fall 50% from where it is now.
That domestic violence rates would also fall 50% at least, that men would not seek so desperately to control the outcome and resort to force to try and keep them when they did want to leave... and that this...would virtually never happen...
50% split Mandatory between parents from DAY 1
There is no financial reward for a woman to break up...
There is no reason for the man to try and make her stay
