(KEZK) — Are you going through a divorce? Then it would probably be a good idea to ignore The Onion's sarcastic list of tips for enduring such a split:

  1. Take a moment to be grateful that you’re not nearly wealthy enough to have any meaningful assets to fight over.
  2. If you have young children, consider staying together until they’re old enough to wish you’d ended this loveless charade years ago.
  3. If you let her keep the house, she may consider taking you back.
  4. Rather than looking at the situation as the end of a fruitful relationship with your spouse, try looking at it as the beginning of a fruitful relationship with your divorce lawyer.
  5. Remind your children that this isn’t their fault, but they definitely aren’t making it easier.
  6. Don’t forget to take care of yourself emotionally and physically during the process so you can really stick it in your ex’s fat face.
  7. Keep the lines of communication between you and your ex open in order to avoid your twin daughters reconnecting at sleepaway camp and hatching a plan to make you two fall in love all over again.
  8. Consider your divorce an opportunity to make the same catastrophic mistake with someone else.
