Marriage isn’t easy, especially if someone isn’t willing to admit their own wrongdoing. When a person is so narrow-minded that they can only see what their spouse is doing wrong in their relationship, they’re just asking for trouble.

On the other hand, it takes a special kind of person to see the other side of an argument. It’s never easy, but sometimes you have to suck it up and let someone else know that they were right.

When this man decided he was unhappy in his marriage, he wrote a letter to his wife demanding a divorce. While at first his outrage might seem warranted, his wife’s response put everything into perspective for him…

It’s difficult to stay in an unhappy marriage, but unfortunately, it’s a reality for many people. Even the most happily married people could relate to this man’s story… until his wife’s words at the end changed everything!

“Dear wife,” the man wrote. “I’m writing you this letter to tell you that I’m leaving you forever. I’ve been a good man to you for seven years, but I have nothing to show for it. These last two weeks have been hell. And then your boss called to tell me that you quit your job today… ugh, that was the last straw!”

“Last week, you came home and didn’t even notice I had a new haircut, I had cooked your favorite meal and even wore a brand new pair of silk boxers. You ate quickly in just two minutes and went straight to sleep after watching all of your soaps.” The man was only getting started…

The note continued: “You don’t tell me that you love me anymore; you don’t even want to have sex with me these days. What the heck is going on? Whatever the reasons may be for this unacceptable behavior, later for you… I’m gone!”

“Signed, Your EX-husband,” the letter concluded. “P.S. Don’t try to come and find me. Your sister and I are moving away to West Virginia together! I hope you have a great life, because I certainly won’t be in it!”


“Dear ex-husband,” the wife began. “Nothing has made my day more than receiving your letter. In the hellish seven years that we have been married, a good man is a far cry form what you’ve been. I watch soaps so much because they drown out your constant whining. Too bad that it doesn’t work. ” She was only getting warmed up…

I did notice when you got a hair cut last week, but honestly, the first thing that came to mind was ‘You look like a girl!’ Since my mother raised me not to say anything if you can’t say something nice, I didn’t comment.”

“And when you cooked my favorite meal, you must have gotten me confused with my sister, because I stopped eating pork seven years ago. About those new silk boxers: I turned away from you because the $49.99 price tag was still on them, and I prayed it was a coincidence that my sister had just borrowed $50 from me that morning.”


After all of this, I still loved you and felt we could work it out. So when I hit the lotto for $10 million, I quit my job and bought us two tickets to Jamaica. But when I got home you were gone and all I found was your lousy letter.”


“Everything happens for a reason, I guess. I hope you have the fulfilling life you always wanted. My lawyer said that the letter you wrote ensures you won’t get a dime from me. So, take care. Signed,

Your EX-wife, rich as hell and free!”
