“To Care for Her”

“My ex divorced me after his best friend died of a drug overdose. He left me to be with his best friend’s girlfriend, he felt he needed to “take care of her” now that his friend was gone. We had only just met her at the funeral. They broke up within 2 weeks.“

Talk about misplaced knight-in-shining-armor syndrome! It’s like a tragic rom-com plot gone wrong, and they didn’t even last longer than your average free trial period.


“Too Warm to Handle”

“I knew a couple who had been married for 25 years… he wanted the heating on all day every day, and she found it too warm so there was no way to recover from this. I’m assuming there was more to it.“

This gives a whole new meaning to “irreconcilable differences.” Maybe they should have tried separate blankets before calling it quits?


“Past Life Drama”

“Apparently, from what my dad told me, my mom divorced him because in a past life, she was a Native American, and my dad was the cowboy that killed her?”

This one’s a wild ride through past lives and cosmic justice. Who knew that your previous life’s beef could lead to a modern-day breakup?


“The Modafinil Misunderstanding”

“I’m getting divorced because my wife… takes [Modafinil] at 5 to 10xs the dosage, then hallucinates about me having affairs… She has a folder on her phone labeled ‘evidence’ with HUNDREDS of screen shots of absolute nonsense.”

Sometimes, the side effects are worse than the disease. This story has everything: drugs, hallucinations, and a digital paper trail of nonsense.


“Palm Reader Predicament”

“The dumbest excuse I ever heard was when my now ex-wife told me we needed to divorce because a palm reader said I wasn’t her soul mate.”

Nothing like outsourcing your relationship decisions to a palm reader. I wonder if the palm reader saw this coming?


“The Last Laugh”

“The husband laughed at a joke that was made at the wife’s expense… That was just the straw that broke the camel’s back“

This one is like a sitcom scene turned sour. It’s all fun and games until someone laughs at the wrong joke.


“The Murder Mystery”

“My half-aunt was wanted for murder in Oregon, so her husband said ‘Divorce me, and then they can’t make me testify against you!’ So they divorced. And lived together for the next fifty years, in Washington State.”

Who needs a crime drama when you have family gatherings? This story has plot twists worthy of a Hollywood script.


“Second Life, First Divorce”

“My client and his wife were into a role-playing game, ‘Second Life’?… he created a fake avatar and stalked her in the game. Sure enough, she was running around on him.”

Virtual infidelity leading to real-life divorce. It’s like “Black Mirror” meets “Days of Our Lives.”


“Bob the Repeat Husband”

“My aunt has been married 4 times. Bob 1. Divorced, married Bob 2. Divorced. Remarried Bob 1. Divorced. Married some homeless guy.”

This one’s a romantic rollercoaster with a case of Bob confusion. Maybe it’s just something about the name Bob?


“The Forgetful Coffee Query”

“I heard from my friend who is a lawyer… he had a client file for divorce because every morning his wife would ask him how he takes his coffee…for seven years.“

Talk about a slow brew to realization. Seven years to remember one coffee order – that’s some serious patience!


“The Flamboyant Truth”

“He was flamboyantly gay… Never saw them together after the wedding, and she went on to do well for herself.“

Sometimes, it takes a wedding to see what everyone else already knows. At least there’s a happy ending for her!


“Honeymoon Betrayal”

“My childhood friend married a girl… She cheated on him ON THE HONEYMOON NIGHT. Had something going with her ex on the side.“

Honeymoon phase? More like a honeymoon fiasco. That’s one way to start (and end) a marriage.


“Convict Sugar Baby Chaos”

“She met a convict grifter 30 years younger… Finally he gets out and they have like a few months together before he ditches her for his meth dealer.”

This one’s like a soap opera plot, but with more jail time and less dramatic pauses.


“The Artist’s Dilemma”

“My friend quit her job and decided she wanted to be an artist… They lost the house and car… She blamed him and left him because he wasn’t being a good provider.”

When chasing your dreams leads to a nightmare. Maybe a little more financial planning next time?


“Toothpaste Turmoil”

“My aunty divorced because they squeezed toothpaste from different ends. One of them likes to squeeze the tube from the bottom and the other from the top.”

And you thought your relationship had trivial arguments. It’s the little things, folks!
