Don’t believe that we’re going for a stand against marriage. It’s rather a wonderful, fulfilling thing Studies keep showing that married men are healthier , and it’s really just, well, less lonely usually.
But since divorce statistics remain high alarmingly, we think it’s wrong to disregard the often unspoken downsides of marriage. That is why we asked you, our readers, to submit stories of marital woe.
A soldier’s life is terribly hard, roughly the poem goes, and nothing proves that much better than two of the complete stories on our list, both from military men. We likewise have a tale from the man susceptible to U.S. immigration bureaucrats and something who’s survived some serious threats from his wife.
The common thread of most these experiences? Marriage defies our expectations.
So, without further ado, are your worst marriage stories here, year which we collected earlier this.
