In my dad’s last divorce, it came out that his wife had been having an affair. Throughout her last THREE marriages. It was with her first boyfriend. Who was also her step-brother.
Neither of them wanted to settle, and it ended up coming out in a hearing or trial in front of the court.
But my dad was no angel, and had threatened her with a gun […] so they both played themselves. (AtTheEolian)
For a while she concealed that she’d accidentally burned down the kitchen (he was no longer living there). After he found out, which only happened because he happened to drive past the house, she accused me of telling him and otherwise colluding with him to ruin her. She also threatened to strangle my secretary. She’s in my top five crazy client list. (unclephilibuster)
Long Term Lie
The husband was a physician and the wife was a hair stylist. The husband lied about being having a long term disease to the wife and her family. He used this lie to leave his job and stayed home for years while the wife took on multiple jobs and tried to support him on her income alone.
They found out he was lying and she filed for divorce. He was ordered by the judge to immediately seek employment as a doctor and pay the wife alimony based on his theoretical salary. (financial-jaguar)
