Why Did You Divorce? In another thread it was mentioned that most divorces occur because of sex or the lack thereof. I know it is rarely just one thing that ends a relationship. It is usually an accumulation of things that one or both partners feel they just can't live with anymore. John Gray said on a talk show once that most marriages can survive the death of a child, a major illness, or even infidelity. What the average marriage cannot survive is the small things, like: wet towels on the floor, squeezing toothpaste in the middle of the tube, or different spending habits. I'm not sure I agree with that, but I can see where that might be true for some people. I'm curious why did you divorce? Multiple choices are allowed on the anonymous poll.
