Divorce is becoming “crazier,” according to the Los Angeles lawyer Laura Wasser, though that could have something to do with the clients she has represented, including Kim Kardashian, Maria Shriver and Ashton Kutcher. Men have a reputation for being scoundrels, but Wasser said she increasingly sees women behaving badly. “Wives end up cheating with the math tutor or the swim coach, then snapping, ‘You deserve it! You neglected me!’”
Her new book, "It Doesn't Have to Be That Way" (out Oct. 1 from St. Martin’s Press; $25.99), is meant as a corrective.
