Weird Reasons Why Couples Have Divorced


Why do couples get divorced? It varies. Sometimes there are financial issues or infidelity at play. One spouse may be lazy, refusing to work or do household chores.

There are a whole bunch of elements at play in a marriage. Marriage takes a lot of work, and if both parties are not willing to put in 100% effort each and every day, then it’s easy for the relationship to deteriorate and eventually lead to divorce.

In the past, you needed a bona fide reason to divorce. You had to place the blame on one party. Nowadays, all 50 states allow for no-fault divorce. If you don’t want to blame the other spouse, then you can simply file for divorce under the umbrella term “irreconcilable differences.”

This means that a couple can divorce for any reason under the sun. Don’t like what your spouse is doing? Divorce them. Maybe your spouse isn’t doing something they should. Whatever it is, it can be a reason for divorce.

As you can imagine, couples have divorced for bizarre reasons over the years. Here are some of them.

They Talk Too Much

Many marriages end in divorce due to a lack of communication. However, there have been cases where people have filed for divorce because their spouses are on the opposite end of the spectrum and actually talk too much. In these cases, though, the spouse talks to their friends and family members nonstop, rather than their spouses, so the spouse feels left out.


Politics can be a controversial topic. If the spouses do not agree on who to vote for, then it can lead to nasty arguments and even divorce. When a spouse decides to vote for a different candidate than who you plan to vote for, it can cause a lot of contention.

They Didn’t Like the Same Things

Not everyone is going to like what you like. It’s part of life. Even in marriage, a couple may have disagreements about interests such as movies. One couple actually divorced because the woman asked her husband if he liked the movie “Frozen,” and he admitted that he didn’t care for it.

Leaving a Messy House

It may seem like a stereotype, but it’s often true: women are expected to clean up the messes in the house. Some men leave dishes all over and never lift a finger to do household chores. One man always left dirty dishes by the sink, never putting them in the sink and washing them. Each time he did that, his wife was one step closer to leaving. She eventually filed for divorce.

Seek Legal Help

For the most part, couples can divorce for any reason, although there may be some restrictions in other countries. Irreconcilable differences can mean virtually anything.
