In the settlement.
From the Washington Post:
Love, etc.: David Brooks and Sarah Brooks divorceBY THE RELIABLE SOURCENovember 18 at 3:28 pmDivorcing: David Brooks and Sarah Brooks, after 27 years of marriage. The respected New York Times columnist, 52, and his wife met as students at the University of Chicago; she converted to Judaism and changed her named from Jane to Sarah when they wed in 1986. Just last year, Brooks said “I go to colleges and I tell kids if you have a great career and a crappy marriage, you will be miserable. If you have a crappy career and a great marriage, you’ll be happy. So every course you take in college should be about who to marry.” The couple, who upgraded to a $4 million home in Cleveland Park last year, have three children.
I firmly believe Mr. Brooks should suffer the torments of the damned for his many years of terrible opinions, lying and awful writing.
That being said, divorce -- like the sun and the rain -- rises on the evil and on the good alike, and falls on the just and on the unjust alike. It is a miserable, heartbreaking business and I wish anyone going through it (except the real, abusive monsters) good luck and kindness.
That being said, words alone cannot express how eagerly I await the David Brooks column in which he rounds up the all the usual David Brooks suspects -- neurology, disordered families, the poors having un-David-Brooks-approved-of sexytime, the '60s and, oh, let's say Henry V -- to explain the collapse of his marriage.
