Divorce Lawyers Shared The Weirdest Reasons Their Clients Got Divorced – Are They Deal Breakers For You?

"My clients divorced because the wife always left poop stains in the toilet."

We asked divorce lawyers in the BuzzFeed Community to tell us some of the weirdest reasons their clients got divorced.

Obviously these aren't the ~only~ reasons – moreso the straws that broke the camel's back – but based on the information given I'm curious to know what you'd do in their situations. Let's find out.

  1. 1. "My client divorced her husband because he insisted on bringing his mother on their honeymoon. The reason? Because his mother was STILL breastfeeding him. Yes, the husband, a grown man, was still breastfeeding."
