Every time I end a relationship, all my friends gather around and tell me how unreasonable I'm being; that is ludicrous; that I'm going to die alone if I don't get it together. And those friends are not wrong — I am very, very much alone!
And yet, because I'm now armed with a number of stories from divorce lawyers, I can say, "Well, at least my reason for breaking it off isn't this outrageous!" And they'll have no choice but to nod and be like, "You're right. In fact, we are the ones who are wrong, for questioning you. Here's 100 dollars to show that I am, in fact, sorry."
And now, I'm sharing these stories of divorce with you. Coming from the AskReddit subreddit, this thread asked divorce lawyers to share their craziest stories about couples who broke up for nonsensical reasons, and boy oh boy, there are some doozies.
