What’s the dumbest reason you’d divorce your spouse?


An old Reddit thread asked divorce lawyers the most ridiculous reasons their clients have filed for divorce and here are some of the best (worst) reasons.


“A friend of mine divorced her husband because his penis was too big. She said it was fun at first, but that sex became ‘too much work.’”


“Because the husband insisted on bringing his mother on their honeymoon. That’s where the wife discovered that the reason was that his mother was still breastfeeding him. Yes, the husband — a grown man — was still breastfeeding.”


“One that sticks out to me was when the husband and wife were both playing an online role-playing game like The Sims, except more adult. Well, the wife got very heavily involved in the game, spending 10 hours a day playing, and she wouldn’t stop. The breaking point was when the husband set up a fake avatar to see what she was doing and found her avatar having sex with some random guy’s avatar.”


“Because the wife spent $42,000 on psychic hotlines.”


“I had a client file for divorce because every morning his wife would ask him how he takes his coffee. For seven years.”


“Because he wouldn’t help her put up a shower curtain.”
