The phrase "money-hungry ex-wife" describes my mother perfectly. In order to get custody of me and my brother (and thus the child support) from my father after their divorce, she claimed in court that my father had constantly beaten her and even raped her. Completely ridiculous because my father is really a super nice guy and was and is a total heartthrob. After some back and forth, I lived with my mother some years later and was just about to graduate when the question of what I was going to do after graduation came up. She wanted me to get a Master's degree of course, but not because it would offer me a good career or anything. No, simply because "then your father has to pay child support for another 5 years!" I really did decide to get a Master's degree then, but shortly before the graduation exam, I was kicked out at home because she demanded more money from me than I could provide and I wasn't a financial gain for her anymore. She taught me early that when it comes to her financial support, her motto is, "If you want money, you have to go to court". I now confess that I will soon file a lawsuit against my Mother because she's employed just like my father and is therefore obligated to pay for my education.
