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 😉
