I got divorced because of my cat

My ex said he liked cats until we said "I do". Then he revealed he hated cats and demanded I get rid of my cat I'd had for 5 years.

i refused. After 2 weeks (only 2 weeks of marriage!) he gave me an ultimatum. The cat or him. 

I figured if he was wiling to lie while we datednd our engagement and then give me an ultimatum after only 2 weeks, he wasn't a good guy.

so we divorced. 

My friends think I'm crazy, but I don't. What do you think?

I had my dog Hunny before I met DH. He didn't really like her, but he knew insisting I get rid of her would be ridiculous, not to mention futile.

Your DH is wrong, not to mention a liar.

I don't blame you. He wasted a lot of time and effort on that lie.

My DH has told me he doesn't like my cats. Detests them really. But, he LOVES me and WANTS me to be happy so he tolerates them for me. That's how it's supposed to work. Glad I didn't find a douche.

I LOVE my cat!

...but seriously he lied to you knowing you had a cat, with the intention of making you get rid of it after marrying you. Bye bye a-hole

Why did he lie about it? I enjoy pets. That's why I ask early on about a guys feelings about different animals.

If he loved you he wouldn't lie especially about liking cats, wtf? You did the right thing, your cat is worth it.

He said he thought I loved him enough to lose the cat once we married.

Quoting firespurity: Why did he lie about it? I enjoy pets. That's why I ask early on about a guys feelings about different animals.
