    I remember - also having a hard time renting an apartment.

      After my divorce the only way I ever got a credit rating was to put all the money I could lay hands on (not much) into a savings account at the bank where I had signed every check for years (on our joint account). I left the account untouched and borrowed a small amount, paid it back early. Rinse and repeat several times.

      But the last straw was a year or so later when I went to get my tubes tied. The Dr produced a form that he wanted my EX-husband to sign giving his permission!! This was about 1978. I went off on him so hard I think I scared him because he shut up real fast....

        Freedom has two enemies: Those who want to control everyone around them...and those who feel no need to control themselves.
