What’s the pettiest reason any of your friends or family members have ever cited for their divorce?

Did you believe it?
He wasn't happy and my mother was fat.
Thats why he divorced her, he said.
Not being happy. So he ruined our lives for the time. Because he wasn't happy.
He left her for a crazy lady who tried to kill herself multiple times, and kidnap me.
But thank my hells he was happy.

I have never asked nor has any offered. 🤷‍♂️ I just accept. No one can truly know about a marriage outside of the two people that lived it.
Divorce is very rare in my family. But a friend’s husband divorced her because she got a nose job. It was a subtle improvement looks wise, and helped her to breathe better, but her husband became paranoid that she was going to cheat, even though he knew she hadn’t in 25 years of marriage.

My great-uncle told me about his granddaughter. She had been engaged to a young man who was drafted into the Vietnam War. Her hair was straight and growing long, he asked her before he left for the war to never get her hair cut. So he served his tour of duty, came home & they got married. After a couple of years he started asking her to cut her hair short. She refused and it became a source of contention in the marriage. Her hair continued growing, my uncle said it was long enough to sit on. The husband kept insisting she cut it and she absolutely refused. They ended up divorcing. I thought that the hair probably reminded him of the war and for her it was a reminder of her loyalty to him while he was gone. Too bad they couldn’t have sorted this out.

@DoubleRings I have never heard anyone else getting a divorce for this reason. It’s only hair. She kept it washed and done up nice but he couldn’t stand it. I’m sure it brought memories of the war. Too bad he didn’t get some help and maybe they could have compromised.

@Dino11 Disagreements about money is said to be the number one reason or underlying reason for divorces.
