17 Divorce Lawyers Shared The Weirdest Reasons People Got Divorced And I Don't Know What To Say

"She wanted a divorce because her husband's dick was too big and sex became 'too much work.'"

Divorce lawyers probably hear some of the craziest, most random details about people's marriages.

Netflix

Well, I stumbled upon this old Reddit thread in which user KlyonneSpencer asked divorce lawyers the most ridiculous reasons their clients have filed for divorce, and y'all, I seriously can't with these:

NBC

1. "I once had a client who married a woman he met while he was stationed in Guantanamo Bay. Well, she was practicing cooking American dishes for him when she decided to make spaghetti and added an ingredient from an unlabeled freezer bag to the sauce. When I asked her what it was, she just replied hysterically that she didn't know any better. That's when her husband chimed in and said that the ingredient was MENSTRUAL BLOOD!"

"The wife explained to me through tears that her mother and grandmother had told her that's the way to keep her man. Her husband couldn't let it go."

Palatron

2. "A friend of mine divorced her husband because his dick was too big. She said it was fun at first, but that sex became 'too much work.'"

"When she first told me, I refused to believe it. But then she showed me a picture of them dancing at their reception, and holy shit was this guy packing heat!"

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

4. "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."

NBC

5. "Because the wife spent $42,000 on psychic hotlines."

6. "I overheard a divorcing couple in my associate's office arguing about all the reasons they disliked each other when all of a sudden the husband started screaming about the wife leaving shit stains in the toilet."

7. "A friend of mine and his wife played the lottery, and one day he came up with the idea to prank his wife by playing the previous day's winning numbers. So he bought the ticket and stuck it on the fridge. Well, when his wife went to the kitchen to make coffee, he yelled to her from the other room to check the lottery numbers to see if they won. He had a huge grin on his face as he heard her check her laptop. But then she went silent for a moment...before yelling back that they didn't win anything!"

MTV

"15 minutes later, she came downstairs with both of their kids in tow, saying she forgot to tell him they were going to her mom's for the day, and she left. Then my friend went to check the fridge and the trash — the ticket was nowhere to be found, and his wife wouldn't return his calls. That's when he realized she thought they'd won the lottery, and was taking off with the winnings! When she finally came back home a few days later, she just walked in the door and said, 'Fuck you.' And he knew he had to divorce her."

9. "Because he wouldn't help her put up a shower curtain."

10. "My boss's wife just filed for divorce because he used too much toilet paper. She was a super-thrifty coupon lady, and would even listen when he was in the bathroom to see if he was using too much."

Showtime

11. "Because he was still living with his mom."

RavenHairBeauty

13. "The husband wanted a divorce because the wife was still wiping the ass of their perfectly healthy teenage son."

sixtiesqueeen

15. "Because he loved his pinball machine collection more than he loved her."

17. "My neighbor filed for divorce because her husband smacked his lips when he ate and slurped his coffee and soup — she thought if she didn't divorce him, she'd end up going to jail for battery."
