  • I'm not married yet, but I wouldn't. That's not something to play around with.

  • No. That would be immature.

  • THAT'S TERRIBLE.. but I've known those women too!! no, I said it once when we were having problems in the beginning and it hurt him so bad that 9 year later he still is scared of it.

  • NO! I do not believe in women doing this (or men) at all! Honestly speaking, I think that is a horrible thing to do to someone you are supposed to love!

  • No, that's a little childish if you ask me.

  • No. I have never (& neither has he) threatened divorce. I don't do threats... If I say it, I mean it...

    Answer by SabrinaMBowen at 1:10 PM on Jul. 27, 2010

  • Never!


    Answer by beeky at 1:28 PM on Jul. 27, 2010

  • No!! Never! Divorce is never an option in our marriage, let alone something I would threaten. To the Women who use this, what happens when he says "/fine! Do it!"?

  • No. That is childish.

    Answer by Shaylyn318 at 3:05 PM on Jul. 27, 2010

  • No. I wouldn't throw it around like a childish game. He knows the terms that would cause me to look for divorce, but I don't threaten. (Like abuse, cheating, alcoholism, or drug abuse...all of which will probably never happen)
