How To Destroy a Marriage With One Word

Posted by


Not so long ago, and I don’t remember the context, but my generally intelligent and highly educated wife and I were standing in line at a food service place. Something unimportant was said. My wife turned to me and said something very disturbing. I will repeat what she said though it pains me. She shrugged her shoulders and said the following:


“Oh well. YOLO.”




(At that point I just stared at her dumbfounded for 20 seconds speechless.)


When I finally regained my composure, I told her this:




Never repeat those words again or I will divorce you.




Over 14 years of marriage plus a child and it has come to this.

To everyone out there, always remember,  YOLO. It ruins marriages.
