17 Absurd Reasons People Filed for Divorce

People can be very particular, selfish creatures. Sometimes we think we'll be good with someone before realizing that our other quirks will get on their nerves so terribly that they never want to see us again. Some reasons are overly petty, some malicious, and some outright bizarre. Some people outright try to screw over their Ex. Lawyers, legal assistants and other people have collected some real weird reasons some folks had to get a divorce.

    Text - IRtheLaw19 15.9k points 4 hours ago edited I worked for a law office where the owner would talk about the man who sued for divorce because his wife would no longer allow him to use a loaded gun as a... "marital aid." She had apparently agreed to it at some point, and was fine with the gun as long as it was empty, but that just wasn't good enough for him

    Text - Carcharodons 10.5k points 3 hours ago Wasn't the reason but did happen during the course of the divorce. 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.

    Text - Freevoulous 10.3k points 4 hours ago He got drunk at the wedding, she did not like it, and decided to divorce him right after the Honeymoon (which she went to without him) Moreover, this was all an elaborate scheme of divorce-robbery, because the guy was loaded, and so was his entire family... They were loaded because they were a family of EXCELLENT lawyers, and he was third generation lawyer, with all the smarts and experience of his predecessors combined Lets just say it did not go well

    Text - Bodhi_ZA 10.2k points 3 hours ago My dad was a divorce lawyer. He had a client who wanted to divorce her husband for 2 reasons: 1. He did not have enough hair on his chest 2. He did not drive fast enough Keep in mind this was in the 70's when chest hair was a bit more important.

    Text - Julietcaravello1 15.1k points 3 hours ago 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 ha

    Text - yeerk_slayer 6.8k points 4 hours ago I knew a guy from a high school job who divorced his wife of 2 months because she would sleep with a nightlight but he could only sleep in total darkness, as they apparently never lived together until after getting married. He hated her nightlight so much that he would often sleep on the couch instead, but sometimes he would claim the bed for himself and lock her out of the bedroom for the night. This was an eccentric late 40s man working at a burger k

    Text - doublechocolatecooky 8.5k points 4 hours ago 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. L

    Text - brevity_is_hard 12.9k points 5 hours ago Not a divorce lawyer but used to practice criminal defence work. Once had a heavily pregnant client that attacked her husband (of less than a year) with an iron. Said client was now sitting in police cell, sobbing and insisting that her husband deserved it and she wanted a divorce I asked what he had supposedly done, assuming he'd cheated or something similar. Turns out she'd checked his phone and found a single pornsite in his browsing history fro
