True story.


Woman divorces husband for cleaning too much
BERLIN (Reuters) – A German woman has divorced her husband because she was fed up with him cleaning all the time.

German media reported the wife got through 15 years of marriage putting up with the man's penchant for doing household chores, tidying up and rearranging the furniture.

But she ran out of patience when he knocked down and rebuilt a wall at their home when it got dirty, Christian Kropp, court judge in the central town of Sondershausen, said on Thursday.

"I'd never had anyone seek a divorce for this," he said.

Wow. I don't think I would divorce Big Man if he cleaned too much.

But..
knocking a wall down because its dirty...um can we say excessive?

I wouldn't mind if Clay cleaned all the time.

Shoot... if he wants to knock down a wall and cleans up the mess at the same time... all the power to him. :-)

There is definately such thing as "too clean". My hubby picked up my clothes from the bathroom floor, while I was still in the shower, and had them in the washing machine. When I realized what he'd done, I asked, "did you happen to take my iPod out of the pocket?"

Um... No. I didn't ask for a divorce. Just $150 to get a new iPod!
