Divorced people share what lead to their marriage breakdown

Some of these are crazy.

You can find all kinds of information on Reddit, it's a wealth of knowledge at the best of times.


People often begin threads and they just take off with different users sharing their opinions and experiences. Before you know it, some of them could have clocked up thousands of comments.

This latest one gives an insight into what causes lead to some couple's divorces.

Reddit user WhatATime2BAlive asked, 'Divorced people of reddit, what was the final straw?' and they answered in their hundreds with their stories.

Here are some of the worst:


"My husband was cheating. I found out, and instead of immediately dumping his ass, I said, Let's try to work this out, but you have to dump the girlfriend.

His response: "But what if you and me don't work out?"

DIRECT F**KING QUOTE. And THAT was the final straw."

"It was pretty much the Emma Thompson storyline from Love Actually - peeked into a jewelry bag at what I thought was my Christmas gift, on Christmas morning got a goddamn Nook, instead.

I was confused until a week later, via Facebook snooping, I saw his "friend" showing off the gift. Shortly before that, I'd seen suspicious footprints all over our floor and he denied anyone had been in the house."


"Probably when I returned home and found all the furniture, food and my wife missing. Another hint was the empty bank account."

"I came home from work. There was a note on the table. She had dropped our two kids off at her grandparents, told them she was going to the mall, and left the country."


"When I came home to find her sister's husband naked in my bed.

Edit: I guess I didn't clarify. Brother-in-law was naked in my bed, my wife was in the shower.

I never met her sister. Sister was locked up in the mental institution."

"I came home early from work because of a migraine. Found him in bed with my best friend. Oddly, I was more hurt by her behavior than his. Broomed them both that day."

"Him being cruel to my son (not his son, my son from a previous marriage). That's something you can't accept."


"She wasnt religious when we met, 10 years later she told me I was going to hell for believing in dinosaurs."

"The day after my father died (which happened to be thanksgiving day) my husband erased and reset my phone. Everything on it gone. Pictures of my dad with my daughter, pictures that only I had.

He did it knowing that I had not backed up my phone and it wasn't connected to the cloud either.

I had called him the worst person in the world bc he requested a month of leave to visit my terminally ill father, got the leave then decided to not buy a ticket to come visit. So when I called him that he decided to show me how much worse it could be. That was the final straw."

"When he handed several spreadsheets laying out every time I stopped for a drink at Mcdonalds ($1) on my way to/from running errands accross the city in the desert. He then took my bank atm card and cut it up.

Because I got a drink, wasnt allowed to use or have any cash, it all had to be accounted for at all times. I couldnt handle living under a microscope anymore."

"When I found an abortion follow up appointment letter.

We hadn't had sex in over a year."
