Fortnite video game cited as cause of 5% of UK divorces
The cause of marital discontent may be shifting in 2018, as the viral online video game Fortnite sweeps the globe. According to a new report from Divorce Online, a UK site offering information and services to people who are uncoupling, 200 divorce petitions filed in the UK since the start of this year cited Fortnite as a reason for the separation.
“These numbers equate to roughly 5% of the 4,665 petitions we have handled since the beginning of the year and as one of the largest filers of divorce petitions in the UK, is a pretty good indicator,” said a Divorce Online spokesperson in the report.
Wait, you’re saying playing a video game non-stop to the exclusion of everything else might affect your life adversely?
I’m shocked. Shocked, I say.
