Friend of mine divorced his then wife because she would only speak French when her family would come over. She was Spanish, as was her family…. To add, her family spoke English, French and Spanish, he could only speak Spanish and English, she got bored of being married to him, her family basically talked sh—t about him whilst he was there, was only when he recorded a conversation whilst they where there and got it translated he found out what was going on.—StanMarsh01


My douche cousin told his wife she had three chances to give him a son. Daughter was born first. Strike one. Son was born second. Then they find out the boy cant eat gluten. So my cousin divorced her and has made zero effort to see his kids.—erfilmvictim


Neither side would follow the court orders. When they had to go back to court they were fighting over a pistol and the man’s grandmother’s bowls. I assumed for weeks that these bowls were some sort of heirloom or expensive china. When they finally brought the bowls in to swap they were fucking tupperware.—Carcharodons


Not me, but a friend my mum has divorced her husband because his mother still coddled him at age 40, with his consent. They lived with his mother (common in Asia).

By coddle I mean that she would walk straight into their room after his shower and powder his back for him. They couldn’t lock their bedroom door because his mother would come in as and when she wanted. If they locked the door, she would knock repeatedly asking what they were doing.—doublechocolatecooky


Man I was going to say that our client was served divorce papers for sending a couple hundred thousand dollars overseas in a scam, but damn you guys got better ones than me.

It wasn’t a couple hundred thousand, but over half a million AUD. Emailing to a ‘Baltic woman’ back and forth over a period of time over which he sent the dollars totalling to the $500k+. No video calling or anything, just emails.—yeetbix_


I sh—t you not. A recently married couple (of 2 years) broke it off because the husband would not stop feeding the dog. The dog got outrageously fat. Apparently she saw connection between the dog and future children.—Bing-Wallace


My client was the outrageous one, so my heart went out to his poor wife. He had OCD which manifested primarily financially, so he made their lives a penny-pinching hell. Examples: he was obsessed with avoiding unnecessary driving (wear and tear on the car, gas expenses), so he cut the whole family’s hair at home and never let them eat at a restaurant or go to the movies.

Weirdest of all: he kept one toilet paper roll on him at all times and you had to get one square from him before you could go to the bathroom. He never gave more than one square. Wife finally got fed up and left him when 1) he gave her bangs during an in-home haircut and 2) their daughter was so traumatized by the toilet paper thing they couldn’t potty train her.—Julietcaravello1


My Grandfathers brother was a judge who presided over state issue marriages from time to time, one couple he married returned six months later to “Confirm” the wedding and end their trial marriage, when he thusly informed them that there was no such thing and that they had been married for six months they subsequently broke up.—Aths
