01/8Was this your last fight too?
There is always a fight which changes the course of our relationship. It either gets better or it makes things worse. Here are 7 divorced people who have shared that one fight that led to the end of their marriage. Scroll down to know what tipped their boat.
02/8“In front of the therapist”
This is ironic but it all happened when we were sitting with a marriage counselor. She was stubborn and so was I. Neither of us agreed to back down. I literally realised that this will never end and when a counselor’s interference too can’t help, we are done. We had reached a pinnacle and recovery was nowhere in sight.
03/8“Who will cook lunch”
We both are working and are always stuck on who shall make the meals ever since the work from home issue began. This time we both had had enough. Our whole fight was based on who will cook, who should cook and we were questioning each other’s job timetable. It all turned ugly and he left the house. I guess it had become too much for us both. We had an amicable divorce.
04/8“ How much money do you have in your account”
Being a woman and on top of that a wife is tough. My finances were always questioned but this time I had it! He kept asking me what amount I have in my account and all my savings. He tried to snatch my phone to see the statements, rummaged through my wardrobe to see any hidden passbook. I knew this was my last night with him.
05/8“Which soap should I use”
It sounds funny but this fight was associated with many issues. I love a specific kind of soap which I have been using since childhood and I have good skin so nothing to worry about either. My wife is a skincare enthusiast and she reviews all kinds of shower gels and soaps and has a huge collection of the same. She was so adamant that I should use what she is asking me to but that led to the opening of a can of worms. She felt that I am still stuck in my childhood, doing what my parents say and never listening to her. I felt she tried to control every little thing about me… it got ugly. We parted ways the following month after 20 days of separation.
06/8“You are too frugal”
My wife and I are both hardworking and make good money. But I believe in saving and it led to a fight I regret but can’t rewind time. We would split all bills but one day I refused to pay for something I found irrelevant. That is when she made me count the times she has not questioned my indulgences and the fact that I hardly spend on some luxuries which we both happen to use. She called me frugal, miser, and that hit my male ego. IKt led to an ugky fight but the words that we had spewed at each other had burnt our relationship in 1 hour.
07/8“I don’t feel that love for you anymore”
I was a manchild when we got married and yes I shamefully agree that hygiene too was not in my court at the time. I had just left the hostel to start working and we got married. She tried so hard to make a man out of me but at the time my ego would react like a teenager’s. It had become too much for her that one morning she woke up, packed her bags and told me that she doesn't feel anything for me anymore and is too exhausted. The next week I had divorce papers at my doorstep.
08/8“We should shift abroad”
I live in a joint family and my wife comes from a nuclear household. She wanted to live abroad and never kept that thought a secret but I always mistakenly took it too lightly. When she got an offer from her office to move to Houston, USA, I told her that we cannot do that because my parents are here. Her facial expression told me that I had crushed her dream by saying that because she was always clear that she wants us to shift and I would just nod earlier which was taken as consent. It became our last fight, our last argument.
