Marriage can be challenging enough, but when two people are from two very different cultures, things can get very interesting. It’s not uncommon for Americans to marry people from other countries. While most of us already know that it can be tough living with someone, imagine sharing a life with a person who grew up in a culture completely alien to your own? There are bound to be lots of unique misunderstandings and headaches. But at the end of the day, love conquers all, right? Well, not so much in the case of one Polish man, who paid a visit to a lawyer seeking to divorce his American wife. You won’t believe his reason!
A POLISH man moved to the US and married an American girl.
Although his English was far from perfect, they got along very well – until one day he rushed into a lawyer’s office and asked him if he could arrange a divorce for him.
The lawyer said that getting a divorce would depend on the circumstances and asked him the following questions:
Lawyer: Have you any grounds?
Man: Yes, an acre and half and nice little home.
Lawyer: No, I mean what is the foundation of this case?
Man: It’s made of concrete.
Lawyer: I don’t think you understand. Does either of you have a real grudge?
Man: No, we have a carport.
Lawyer: I mean. What are your relations like?
Man: All my relations are still in Poland.
Lawyer: Is there any infidelity in your marriage?
Man: We have a high fidelity stereo and good DVD player.
Lawyer: Does your wife beat you up?
Man: No, I always wake up before her.
Lawyer: Why do you want this divorce?
Man: She’s going to kill me.
Lawyer: What makes you think that?
Man: I have proof.
Lawyer: What kind of proof?
Man: She is going to poison me. She bought a bottle and put it on the shelf in bathroom. I can read, and it says:
