For those familiar with the TV Show "Survivor," one knows you have to "outwit, outplay and outlast." And while that same philosophy is jokingly applied to failing marriages, LousySpouse.com's slogan of "endure, survive and prevail" plays it a
little closer to the vest. Yes, there is a social network for those in the
thralls of divorce, whether it be pre-, post or during.
Co-FoundersThe site is the brainchild of two women from Alexandria, VA who seized an opportunity to create an online community for those that have been knocked upside down and sideways by a cheating or ill-suited mate.
As the story goes, they are "two women who have endured the shock, heartbreak, and devastation of divorce.

baby crying -- a positive place that was free and always available,
where people could rant, get advice, make coping plans and maybe laugh
If you think that only losers should join this lonely hearts club band, the founders feel you will find solace in remembering some of the most famous Lousy Spouse Celebrity Survivors of all time. Not partial to males or females, they feel that this group of famous folk got a bad shake by those they were unfortunately attached to.
But my all-time favorite pick for the absolute worst spouses ever, would have to go to these two, since its a toss-up as to which one is really the lousiest spouse
