The Craziest Reasons to get Divorced

15 04 2009

OK…

Before any of you decide to lock it up and commit your life to that “special someone,” you may want to consider some of the most bizarre and unusual reasons that can prompt a divorce.  Marriage is already complicated enough between balancing finances, kids, decisions, morals, values, jobs, sex, and everything else that this life throws at us, but, I’m pretty sure that you never thought you had to consider these “problems and issues” before considering marriage.

And I thought that divorce usually followed  infidelity and irreconcilable differences…

Check out the following “legitimate” reasons for filing divorces  from all around the world…

1.  In Canada, if a man snored too loud and his wife was able to prove it, she could successfully file for a divorce.

That’s a sure reason for Canadian men to invest in those anti-snoring devices!

2.  In Italy, household chores, such as dish-washing, can be serious enough to bring up the discussion of divorce.

Why doesn’t the couple just hire a maid if it is that big of an issue?

3.  In Japan, sleeping in an “unacceptable ” position is grounds for a divorce.

Wow, the poor Japanese can’t even relax when they are sleeping!

4.  According to the Manu Law, an Indian male had the right to “switch out or swap” his wife if she did not bear him any children after the 8Th year of marriage.  These men could also “dump” their wives for someone else if she only gave birth to female children after 11 years of marriage.

Congrats! You just gave birth to a beautiful baby girl….and your husband is leaving you!  What a memorable experience.

5.)  In England a simple act of “vandalism, ” whether it is intentional or not, can be a completely legitimate reason to ask for a divorce.

Watch out ladies!…make sure you don’t wash your hubby’s favorite white tee with colored clothes and accidentally dye it pink… or else… you might just find yourself divorced.

All I can say is WOW!  No wonder the divorce rate is so freaking high…you can practically divorce someone for any possible reason!  What’s next… approving a divorce if your hair starts turning gray?  You never know….better start stocking up on that hair dye just in case 😉

Travis Barker and Shanna Moakler…”It’s Over!”…Again…

2 04 2009

Looks like the on-again off-again couple is OFF…again.  I wonder how long their supposed break up will last this time?  My guess is no more than a week.  Maybe the reason these two are always calling it quits just to jump right back in, is because they have really good make up sex…humm…you just never know?

Travis and Shanna’s relationship has been a roller coaster ride from the very beginning.  The unstable couple has been though a lot, including a reality television show stint, two kids, a divorce, Travis’s near death plane crash, and now an alleged affair?  Yup…the drama is nowhere near being over as the couple decides to spilt again (we have lost count on the number) after a vicious argument erupted over Shanna’s so called affair with movie star hottie, Gerard Butler.  Apparently, while Travis was hospitalized after barely surviving a brutal plane crash, the former Miss America and mother of two was busy enjoying Butler’s chiseled abs.

While it may seem like Shana is insensitive, this is not the case…AT ALL.  Yesterday, Moakler lashed back in her official blog that she is sick and tired of having her character and morality bashed.  She explains that at the time of the plane crash, Travis and her were very much committed and she stood by his side for love and support.  However, after he was well enough to return to LA, she discovered  romantic emails from numerous women that confirmed Travis’ lies and infidelity.

Shana is not the only one who is at fault here.  Both individuals engaged in wrongful acts and expressed inappropriate behavior, and BOTH should take responsibility for their mistakes.  Travis Barker needs to grow some balls and admit that his ex wife is not the only one at fault here.  I mean, come on…What do you expect your significant other to do if she finds erotic emails from women who are not her?  You can bet she will go find herself some loving too.  Duh!

Maybe if they both apologize they can decide to reconcile their differences for the thousandth time and get back together, AGAIN.  Blah!





John Mayer ditches Jennifer Aniston for Twitter

30 03 2009

Looks like infidelity with another woman is not why John Mayer and Jennifer Aniston have recently called it quits.  Apparently, the real reason the two were not getting along was due to Mayer’s obbession with a social network…Huh?

Yes, according to Aniston, Twitter, a popular social network website, was taking up way too much of Mayer’s time.  It seems that he never had enough time to spend with poor, lonely Jenn.  However, when it came to sending tweets ( messages via Twitter),  his calendar was always freed up.  Mayer even sent out a tweet stating “This heart didn’t come with instructions,” following his over the phone breakup with Jenn…How deep.

All I can say to Jenn is…if your man is “too busy” to spend time with you then why would you want to be with him anyways?  There are lots of other fish in the sea.  And since he uses his time sending messages on a social network, he’s most likely  talking to a lot of other girls.  My advice is work on your jealousy issues and date a guy who is technically challenged.

As for John, at least he’s got instant access to tons of available ladies through Twitter, and if that doesn’t work, maybe he should try OnlineBootyCall!





Cheating Women Are On the Rise

12 11 2008

Men are traditionally the most likely to cheat in a relationship, but a recent study has discovered that the number of women who are willing to admit to an affair has recently been increasing. Marriages occurring in the last five to ten years have shown a rising number of extramarital affairs initiated by women.

One surprising explanation is the rise of connectivity due to technology. As the New York Times observes:

“married women are more likely to spend late hours at the office and travel on business. And even for women who stay home, cellphones, e-mail and instant messaging appear to be allowing them to form more intimate relationships, marriage therapists say. Dr. Frank Pittman, an Atlanta psychiatrist who specializes in family crisis and couples therapy, says he has noticed more women talking about affairs centered on “electronic” contact.”

The advent of social networking sites like Facebook and MySpace, and even micro-blogging sites like Twitter, not to mention basic tools like email and instant messaging, have all facilitated the ability of people, and in this case women, to develop and maintain romantic liaisons outside of their marriage.

Another important factor to consider is that married women are no longer staying at home, isolated from contact with other men.  Women are out there staying late at the office, having lunch with coworkers, just like men regularly do.  In a way it’s indicative of the  closing gap between men and women in the work place and at home.

It will be surprising to see how this trend continues to develop….
