  • Not much you can get off of that besides what it says. She thinks his conduction is the reason for the divorce, or she's using his condition as an excuse to divorce him

  • I think it's pretty straightforward, I don't see any double meanings here.

  • Oh, sorry, no he's not, but for arguments sake, let's say the "condition" is alcoholism. Here's the debate, the facts are that the "condition" caused the divorce; however, that's not what he typed. He stated the opposite and he's saying that's not what that means. Would you read that as the divorce caused his alcholism or that the alcoholism caused the divorce?

  • I think I see what you're getting at OP...and the way I read what he typed is that his condition was caused by the divorce.
    If he meant that she's blaming the divorce on his condition, it should read "You are right. She is blaming his condition for the divorce" or "You are right. She is blaming the divorce on his condition".
    I think.

  • It looks to me that YOU said you think she, the wife, is blaming his condition on the divorce. That the divorce brought on the condition. He has the condition because of the divorce. Wow, I had to think about that one.
