Get this. A woman divorced her husband because her hubby cleaned too much. LOL Most women have to nag to get heir husbands to do any work in the house. Strange. There must be more to this story than they are saying. http://news.yahoo.com/s/nm/20090402/od_nm/us_divorce_odd

I know people who had partners who suffered from OCD (obsessive compulsive disorder) and a lot of people with OCD have a obsession with keeping things clean and tidy and take it to an extreme degree that can be just too much to handle for their partners. I know i would go bonkers if my boyfriend had to have EVERYTHING completely clean and in just the right place, its one thing keeping things clean its another to take it to an extreme

I would go insane too. I went out with a guy once. One date was all it took. His place was spotless. I picked up something on the coffee table to look at it and put it back were it was. NOT. He moved it back into place 1 inch from where I put it. I knew then that it wouldn't work.

Yes there must be something more to this story but it does sound like the husband had some kind of obsessive compulsive disorder of some kind. Like perhaps the exact split second he and his wife finished dinner would race with the dirty dishes to clean them. Maybe he vacuumed ten times a day, and also maybe washed his hands every ten minutes. I know that sounds extreme but people with OCD can be like that, and frankly it would drive me daft too being around a person like that.

I think a good question is was he OCD before they got married. I have met some OCD people. I have a bit of it on hand washing and food. I'm not over the top though.

He may have been OCD when they first met, but it sounds like his condition steadily increased until she just couldn't take it any more.

Maybe he was obsessive about organization and cleaning. My brother happens to be that way. When we were kids, he didn't just put his change in a piggy bank like most kids. He had to sort in into neat towers. His drawers had to be arranged perfectly, and if his slippers weren't arranged next to his bed to his satisfaction, he couldn't sleep. One time, when we were teenagers, I thought he'd gone over the edge. When I got home he was ironing something. I asked what he was ironing, and he replied that it was his money. My jaw hit the ground until I found out that he's accidentally left his wallet in his pants pocket when he washed them.

Is your brother still than obsessive? Ironing money is a bit over the edge. Money is always crumpled when it gets used.

Yes, if not a little more so. He married a lady just as obsessive as he is and they've now been married over 20 years. Once when I was over their house I happened to see their 'To Do' lists. The day was 'scheduled' right down to b@throom breaks and meals...like if it wasn't on the list they'd forget?

I'm a normal woman who is happy when a man helps out. I have a guy friend who I ask to do guy stuff for me, lifting and lugging and anything physical that I can't do, and I do female stuff in return like cooking him a good meal.

Wild. One of the reasons my husband is divorcing me is that I didn't clean enough.

If I had one he probably would too. I don't clean enough.

Well, with having someone else constantly rearranging the furniture, you'd be hard pressed to know where anything was. And c'mon, tearing down and rebuilding a wall because it has a spot on it, well, that's certainly not normal thinking -- "normal" people, if they couldn't clean off the spot, would opt for repainting/repapering. More than likely, he would pop up immediately after eating to wash the dishes, not giving her the chance to have a second cup of tea or coffee. How annoying would that be?

I would go bonkers, but I wouldn't marry someone like that in the first place. I would know right away that his obsessive cleaning would drive me nuts. I'm not a neat freak.

Now here's a really stupid story. I really don't understand what goes on in the minds on some of these people's minds. It's really crazy the way some people thing, and such. It could be just me, but I just don't understand it.
