The amount of post I''ve read with this word in laughable. What is karma ? Is it a word that though''s who have been left behind can feel good about themselves when they say it. If some can tell me what Karma is then ill try to avoid it, life about making decisions if you make them and they turn out not to be the right ones then so be it. You move on and get on with your life while the Ex still in happiness thinking you''ve deserved that, but at the end of the day I''d rather make a mistake then be a miserable person married. So if I make a mistake I don''t think its KARMA I just think of it as as one door closes another will open. So to me it''s a load of b0ll0cks!


Now where''s my Tin Hat!!!!!!!!!

Hi NB,

The definition of Karma is: the principle of retributive justice determining a person''s state of life and the state of his reincarnations as the effect of his past deeds.

Usually translated in Divorce speak as "You hurt me, I hope something bad happens to you soon" or "You''re causing me issues, I hope you get your comeuppance"

But in Divorce, whats right and wrong can be different from different perspectives.

Doing whats good or right for you, can be what someone else feels is bad for them :huh:

Karma originated from the Hindu Buddists - (I Think) and generally they do good, so wishing or hoping something bad happens to someone else kind of goes against their beliefs, so think the meaning (esp in these circumstances) has changed a little.

So if I wished more bad things on my wife and it happened what would that make it then ? Bearing in mind I''m the one who has done wrong ( allegedly !)

The concept of karma came from India and is common to a lot of the religions originating there. Its really to encourage a virtuous life so that by doing good things, then good things will happen. Karma is not a case that you can wish for bad things to happen to someone else because if their actions, it is their actions that bring bad things to them. Think of it as ''what goes around comes arond''.
Now I prefer Schadenfreude its much more fun (no Chris its not a German sausage)

Is it best not to just move on and forget about the other half rather then sitting in a dark room with the voodoo doll sticking pins in it ?

Karma, as has already been stated, has different meanings for people-why the interest?
If you have behaved with integrity and honourably towards your former partner, telling them truthfully why you are leaving and paid fairly towards any children,karma is just a word- a guilty conscience however is another matter........;)
