In sickness and health, until … disinterest separates us! At least that is the picture that some couples take, according to a fascinating discussion that divorce lawyers show the shocking, obscure and sometimes unintended hilarious reasons that couples choose to split.
A user under the guise of dankph, presumably from the US, called for divorce lawyers reddit to share the intimate details of their client's personal life.
What followed was an overwhelming 18,000 comments from legal professionals and commentators, arguing filthy against the reasons why couples decide to stop.

Viral: a common thread for lawyers to give details of why their clients are divorced, attracted more than 18,000 responses
A Reddit user, located near Washington, D.C., offered her experience with the mother of grooms & # 39; mothers.
Ironically placing, under the username ellewoods (inspired by the glamorous character of Reese Witherspoon in the films of Legally Blonde), the lawyer revealed how often the mother-in-law insists on divorce.
& # 39; I have had many younger male potential clients come for divorce talks with their mothers, & # 39; she said. & # 39; During the consultation, the mother does 98% of the conversations, and it is clear who wants the divorce. (I will usually accompany Mama to wait in the lobby while talking directly to the son, and most of the time he is just used to appease his mother.)
The commentor also recalled a scandalous incident in which a mother called & # 39; for a consultation because she explicitly said she wanted her son to get a divorce & # 39; – leaving the lawyer & # 39; polite to let her know that not how divorces worked & # 39 ;.

In another case of mothers who exceeded their limits, a user revealed that their mother's girlfriend eventually divorced her husband because his mother, with whom they lived together, & # 39; turned his back on him & # 39; after he showered.
& # 39; They couldn't lock their bedroom door because his mother would come in whenever and wherever she wanted. When they locked the door, she knocked repeatedly and asked what they were doing, & continued the comment.
In some terrible cases, parents were involved who fought for their children more than anything else.
In more, unintentionally hilarious reports, lawyers explained the bizarre reasons that marriages descend into divorce. Fighting bingo, Star Wars and chewing food loudly seemed to occur fairly often.
Language barrier: a man whose wife deliberately spoke about him in a language he could not understand eventually called it
& # 39; My aunt had a case where the woman had glued all the outdoor hoses together, so that he (he would no longer) spend more time washing his vehicle. When the glue (didn't) work, she cut them all up completely. When he bought a new one (she) who was summoned for divorce, & # 39; shared a person.
It seems that pets are also a reason for individuals to get the claws out.
& # 39; A couple is divorced over a cat. Woman named cat Snowball because of white fur and only wanted the cat to eat wet food or chicken breast. The husband again called cat Lily because of white fleece and believed it should only eat dry food. These two pleaded for a year above custody of the cat, but did not respond to their human children of 15 months, 4 years, and 6 years of age, & wrote a legal adviser.
A lawyer, who was doing an internship at the time of this incident, said their & # 39; favorite & # 39; memory was when a & # 39; couple filed because they were both homosexual & # 39 ;.
In a sad case, a lawyer revealed that a couple who had been married for a lifetime decided to divorce.
Tear jerker: The 60-year-old end of a couple caused confusion among commentators
& # 39; My 90-year-old client (the man) and his son kept me from initiating divorce proceedings with his 88-year-old wife. They had been married for 60 years. The woman had recently hit him with his own walking stick because their daughter poisoned her with the idea that he was hiding money from them. The struggle amounted to a man and a son versus a woman and a daughter, & # 39; wrote the user-horrified cloud.
& # 39; At their first appearance in court, my client appeared in an old pinstriped suit and fedora from the fifties. He was a farmer all his life and this was clearly the only color he owned. He was such a gentle and beautiful old gentleman, she added.
& # 39; I had to leave my client to a new lawyer halfway through the proceedings because I accepted a job in another country, but I understand that the divorce was finally granted. & # 39;
Many users agreed to express sadness about the detail about the & # 39; beautiful old & # 39; man who only had one color.
Devil: A hair-raising incident was shared in which the client wanted to cast out his wife
Fortune: a man who spent all his money on palm lectures received the boat
In a scenario that a familiar scene in the movie Mrs. Doubtfire echoes, a user (not a lawyer) wrote about their & # 39; father's best friend & # 39; and the reason he eventually left his wife.
& # 39; Apparently he would come home every day for great cooked meals. Here she could not cook at all and ordered food from various restaurants. She even went so far as to have contaminated pots and pans that made it seem like she had been cooking all day. She has had almost a year to continue. This was the day before you could view your bank statements online and because she had done all the invoices, he did not notice how much money was missing in spending, & the user shared.
Fight: some unions do not last longer than the wedding reception
A commentor remembered an incident that really summed up the 1970s.
& # 39; My father was a divorce lawyer. He had a client who wanted to divorce her husband for two reasons: 1. He didn't have enough hair on his chest. 2. He didn't drive fast enough. Keep in mind that this was in the 70s when chest hair was a little more important, & read the message.
In words of wisdom that any prospective newlyweds should do well to adhere, a user with the pigswalk lever pushed straight to speak out before they cried out for a bond they are not sure of.
They said: & # 39; My cousin did this 3 months after her parents paid $ 20k for the wedding (early & 1980s). She told me years later that she realized it during the engagement, but that she didn't want to harm anyone's feelings. I told both my children – f ** k feelings if you want to do it before it costs money! & # 39;
Tales of penny pinching, OCD spouses were also common: with one lawyer who reminded a man who wanted his family to use no more than one toilet paper at a time.
But the ultimate kicker? The man who said to his divorce lawyer: & # 39; didn't love her anymore & two days after they got married.
