    FrozenEveryone has their own reasons for divorce and no one outside of the marriage can fully appreciate the dynamics between a husband and wife. Though Michigan is a no-fault divorce state, most couples are likely able to pinpoint certain situations or experiences – or the lack thereof – in their relationship that ultimately led to the demise of their marriage. Sometimes it’s more one person’s fault than another, sometimes it’s a mutual parting of the ways. But the following reasons for calling it quits might just be some of the most amazing ones you’ve ever heard.

    Do You Want to Knock Down a Snowman?

    Frozen. Heard of it? Animated blockbuster of the decade? Beloved by millions, kids and adults alike? Well, apparently one gent wasn’t really feeling it, and he dared to tell his wife of six years as much after they watched the flick together. Her reaction? Or, some might say, her overreaction? To demand a divorce and move out immediately.

    You Do the Dishes!

    A Norwegian study found that the divorce rate among couples who share the household chores is about 50 percent higher than for the marriages where the wife does the housework. Time to give the lion’s share back to the wife? Not so fast. The higher divorce rate, researchers say, has more to do with “modern” values and attitudes rather than a cause-and-effect relationship.

    It’s in Her Genes

    A Swedish study suggested that a specific gene may offer an explanation for why some married women have a hard time staying committed. A variation of the oxytocin receptor gene known as A-allele were less likely to get married because they have difficulty bonding with other people. If those with the gene did actually marry, they were 50 percent more likely to report a marital crisis or threat of divorce.

    She Likes the In-Laws Too Much

    Everyone wants their significant other to get along with the in-laws, right? Apparently, a husband who has a close relationship with his wife’s parents means a 20 percent decrease in divorce. However, when the wife is close with her hubby’s parents, the divorce risk goes up by 20 percent!

    Blame the School

    School’s out for summer? The kids love it. The parents do not, according to a UK survey which found that almost a fifth of parents consider divorce or separation after their kids return to school in the fall. It’s not the kids’ fault – but financial issues may be to blame, with having to pay for summer childcare and taking pricey vacays with the fam. While the desire and decision to divorce may come to pass in the heat of summer for a couple, they may wait until the kids are back in school to break the news so they don’t ruin anyone’s summer and, perhaps, so they can give the relationship one last shot.
