I remember hearing about this. - Stalin

A 99-year-old Italian man divorced his wife of 77 years after he stumbled across letters she had written to a secret lover in the 1940s. The wife confessed to having an affair 60 years ago, and then desperately tried to persuade her husband to stay, but he wasn’t having it. - Misfire

7 He was cleaning too much.

This one kind of makes sense when you know the context.

In 2009, a German woman filed for divorce after she got fed up of her husband cleaning all the time. The husband obsessively cleaned the house and rearranged the furniture. It was apparently the last straw when her husband knocked down and rebuilt a wall in their home, because he thought it to be dirty. - Misfire

Now this isn't a legitimate reason to get a divorce, but damn talk about a clean freak. - MattAffterburner

Nothing wrong with being clean but going over the top... yeah I’d say this one’s understandable - Randomator

8 She won the lottery and wanted to keep the money all to herself.

In January of 1997, Denise Rossi surprised her then-husband, Thomas Rossi, when she filed for divorce after 25 years of what her husband believed had been a happy marriage. It wasn't until two years after that the real reason came out. Just 11 days before she filed for divorce, the wife had won $1.3 million in the California Lottery. Wanting to keep all the money to herself, she took various actions, even filing for divorce. When the truth came out, a Los Angeles family court judge ruled that she had violated state asset disclosure laws and awarded the $1.3 million to Thomas. - Misfire

Greedy lady! - clusium

However, while a doctor did confirm he had a skin disease, he had said it had nothing to do with water. - Misfire

This one's somewhat understandable - darthvadern

I would've been creeped out too. - AlphaQ
