8 Absurd Reasons Why People Decided to Divorce

As a rule, we think that only serious issues like cheating or constant fighting should make people consider divorce. But sometimes couples decide to break up because of really weird and even silly things.

1. Phone nickname

In 2009, a Saudi woman divorced her husband of 17 years when she learned about the name he was calling her. Once, she looked through the contacts in his phone and came across her number stored under the name “Guantanamo,” a military prison in the United States. The woman was offended and immediately asked for a divorce even though he said he thought it was funny and just a silly joke. But unfortunately, he couldn’t convince his wife.


2. Love letters

In Italy, a 99-year-old man decided to end his marriage of 77 years. He had found letters that his wife had written to a secret lover in the 1940s. The wife tried to save their marriage and persuade her husband to stay but he had already made his final decision.


3. Makeup

Just a few days after his marriage, a man dumped his wife after he saw her without makeup. The 34-year-old man believed she didn’t look as pretty as before the wedding. He accused the 28-year-old woman of deceiving him by using so many cosmetics, including fake eyelashes.


4. Laundry

A football fan divorced his wife because of a laundry issue. He used to collect soccer players’ autographs on his t-shirt and his wife decided to wash this t-shirt. As a result, all the signatures faded.
