This comment over at Volokh tells an interesting story. I'm often told that "studies show" men fare better after divorce, and women get the shaft. That doesn't fit with my experience (I'm skirting the edge of bankruptcy), but I get told it all that time, usually in a "shut up you stupid male" sort of way.
I should do some more research, I can't seem to find the specific AP article he cites, though I did find a book on Google books that cites it. But this makes sense to me - divorce in the USA usually favors women, no matter how much people want to hate on the men. The comment at Volokh links to this piece, which goes into more detail.
