Divorced men of Reddit were asked: "What moment with your future ex-wife made you think 'Yup, I'm asking this girl for a divorce'?" These are some of the best answers.
2/26 I had a car accident. Lost my job. Was still depressed about family member passing away. My wife decides she really wants a gold watch that costs $999. I tell her I can't afford to spend money on something like that in our current situation. She shuts herself in the bathroom to cry. That was the first time I didn't react to that tactics. She comes out few hours later and asks me outright if I want a divorce. Which wasn't even on my mind until that point. But that was the moment I knew.
3/26 She called the police to say she suspected me of abusing our child. They arrested me, investigated, apologized and released me.
4/26 When I found evidence of her having an affair on her phone and confronted her, so she assaulted me, and then called the cops. Then got a protective order on me, got it extended with a hyperbolic and half-truth affidavit to include kicking me out of our home and taking my son away.
I realized it somewhere between her mom calling the cops on me the next day for "stealing everything in our home" and being served the protection order. The cops felt so bad for me. I've had to talk to them 3 different times and all of them realize what a spin she's playing.
Just waiting for my day in court.
