  • Man says his ex-wife divorced him because she hated seeing dirty glasses, dishes by the sink.
  • Wife also takes away their four-year-old son with her.
  • Man says it was his fault as he did not respect her feelings.
  • Says “wife wasn’t some insufferable nag who had to have her way all the time.”

A man was divorced by his wife after he repeatedly left unclean glasses and dishes by the sink for her to clean up.

According to The Daily Mail, the man — who confessed to irritating his wife with his habit of leaving the dishes and glasses by the sink without washing them — wrote a heartfelt letter for the publication in which he realised his mistake.

The man said that after divorcing him, the wife also took away their four-year-old son with her, adding that the couple was together for 12 years before the woman called it quits. 

“I often left used drinking glasses by the sink. Occasionally there were plates, too, deposited on the counter just inches from the dishwasher. Sometimes I also failed to put my clothes away and instead left them draped on furniture or even on the floor. That’s what made her leave me,” the man wrote.

However, the man said that it was, indeed, his fault that made her leave because he did not respect her feelings.

“The glass by the sink did matter to my wife — she hated it sitting there — but it wasn’t just about the glass. It wasn’t about dishes left for her to sort, or laundry on the floor. My wife wasn’t some insufferable nag who had to have her way all the time,” he wrote.

“It was about what these things said to her. And what they said was: I would always choose my feelings and preferences over hers. That she was married to someone who did not respect or appreciate her.”

“Not taking four seconds to put my glass in the dishwasher was more important to me than she was,” he wrote, adding that he regretted his behaviour.

“Of course, at the time I didn’t know any of this. I thought I was a good man. I am a good man — but the fact is, good men can be terrible at marriage and frequently are. That’s a harsh lesson but it’s one I firmly believe most — all? — men need to hear,” the man wrote in the open letter.
