The worst part is when you realise that at some stage, these people actually loved each other…
Let’s be honest, divorcing couples can put each other through some really horrible sh*t.
Thanks to our friends at Reddit, divorce lawyers have shared their most memorable cases. Most of them are memorable for some fairly disturbing reasons.
These are the most mortifying tales:
1. The one where the ex-husband gets messed up revenge.
The soon-to-be ex-husband used his wife’s email and phone address to sign her up to a wide variety of rather interesting sites. From every bank loan, religious group, porn site his weird little brain could think of.
He went as far to publish a sex ad on Craigslist, advertising that she was in desperate need of a sex partner. Funnily enough, the wife ended up dating one of the guys who replied to her fake sex ad.
Suck it, ex-husband.
2. The one where every centimetre counts. Literally.
A couple enduring the rituals of divorce had chosen to continue living with one another pending the same of their family home.
Oh, that’s quite amicable, right?
The two had to employ a mediator just to settle how much space the other got in the fridge.
3. The one with a bomb.
In 1996, a Santa Cruz family law attorney, Jack Jacobson, was delivered a wrapped gift two days before Christmas. Jacobson walked into his office, with his mysterious Christmas gift.
A few minutes later, the gift exploded. One of Jacobson’s hands was completely blown off.
Now, the bomber has never been caught but the victim is convinced the package was from unhappy, ex-client who didn’t get what they wanted in their divorce.
4. The one where the wife wins the lottery.
Oh, get ready to shake your head, in that oh-god-you-were-so-close type of way.
Denise and Thomas Rossi were just your average couple. They had been married for 25 years, and were so close that they even shared a toothbrush (is that normal?).
