If you have an ex -- which most of us do -- you've probably received the "You're better off without them," speech from a friend. But what if the breakup left you better off in unexpected ways? Say, richer?

Though I've been reading and writing about money for six years now, I still do stupid things sometimes. Last week I made another relatively un-interesting mistake, but one that's educational at the same time.
