Most divorces begin for a number of usual reasons, such as lost passion in the relationship, or they’ve fallen out of love, or irreconcilable differences. But for a select few, the reasons for pursuing divorce are quite a bit different than what you would expect. On this blog, we look at three divorces from around the world which began for particularly strange reasons.
A man in China married his beautiful wife, whom he was absolutely enamored with. Soon after, she birthed their first daughter, but much to the man’s dismay, the daughter didn’t look like either of them. In fact, the man described her as “hideously ugly.” Fearing that she would be accused of infidelity, she finally confessed to her husband that she had spent more than $100,000 on plastic surgery to get her stunning good looks. Sadly, there was no “beauty on the inside” moral to this story, as the husband then sued his wife, won, and obtained a divorce.
Too Many Pets
Pets are a big part of a marriage, and visitation or custody can be a huge issue in a divorce. But one man in Israel was surprised to come home one day and find that his wife had adopted not one, not two, but 550 cats. While he initially supported his wife’s decision, he eventually became fed up and filed for divorce after realizing how much of his income was being spent on cat food. That and he was also probably fed up of finding multiple cats in every single corner of his house at all times.
A Bad Gamble
A Russian man with a serious gambling problem was playing a poker game that was not going well. Having already lost his life savings, he believed his luck was about to turn around, so he bet the one thing he had left: his wife. His luck would not change, and he lost. When the winner showed up to collect his winnings, the gambler’s wife was so furious that she immediately filed for divorce.
Further twisting the knife for the gambler, the man who defeated him and his now-ex-wife began dating after the incident, and were married themselves not long afterward.

Whenever you are experiencing a family law issue, you will likely wish to hire a San Diego divorce attorney. You will not be short of options, so how do you choose which one is right for you? You will want to make sure you make the correct choice, knowing how much of your future you’re going to be entrusting to them.
Your initial consultation is possibly the most important meeting of your entire case. During your consultation, you will have the undivided attention of your attorney to give them as many details about your case as possible. This serves two purposes: it allows your lawyer to analyze your case and provide you with the best possible individually-tailored advice, and it helps both of you determine if you wish to work together.
The latter point is extremely important. If you feel as though the attorney you are meeting with may not have your best interests at heart of you don’t necessarily feel comfortable with them in any way, you should choose to move on and pursue other options.
Likewise, if your attorney feels as though you have unrealistic goals for your case and refuse to budge away from them, they may choose to decline your case. This means there are two important things you should bring to your consultation: a set of goals, and an open mind. Your attorney’s job is to mold those goals in to optimistic, but achievable expectations for your case, which requires you to be open-minded and flexible. If something regarding your case is important to you, be sure to make it known, and your attorney should listen, but likewise their job is to provide you with a realistic picture for your case.
A consultation usually lasts roughly an hour, and can take place either over the phone or in-person, whichever is most convenient for you. While it is important that you come prepared with a list of questions regarding your case, most attorneys will also provide you with the ability to call and ask any further questions that may arise. When you feel completely comfortable with a particular lawyer, then you should absolutely hire them and give them the opportunity to represent you in your case.
