Well, this is different

I'm not sure whether to laugh or cry at this. But it certainly is different:

A German woman has divorced her husband because she was fed up with him cleaning all the time.

I've heard of divorces because the man simply isn't interested in cleaning, just doesn't care. Heck, I've almost been involved in one of those myself.

I've also heard of divorces happening because the woman isn't doing enough cleaning. Harsh, sexist of course, but I have heard of them.

But a divorce for a man who cleans too much?

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.

Only in Germany, eh?
