Divorce is not something you wish upon anyone, especially based on a very shallow reason; ignored chat and text messages.
Earlier this month, a woman in Taiwan was granted a divorce from her “estranged” husband over ignored messages she left him on messaging app “Line”. The presiding judge cited that the “marriage is beyond repair”.
The woman, in her 50’s, left several messages to her husband, in his 40’s, over a span of 6 months, which the latter mostly ignored. Even an emergency situation (the woman got caught in a car accident) was not enough to warrant a reply from the husband. There were also other marital problems involved (monetary and family dynamics) which convinced the jury to end the marriage.
