Over 200 Marriages Have Ended Thanks To Fortnite

At this point, Fortnite is becoming that fart that sticks around forever and there doesn’t seem to be any change on the horizon, until the army of 12 year-olds who decide whats cool want to try something else, we’re essentially stuck.

Fortnite is starting to cause some real-life problems though, as one divorce website has discovered that over 200 cases were due to Fortnite related issues.

UK website Divorce UK are behind the revelation and believe it’s due to more distractions affecting modern-day marriage.

A spokesperson for the company said “addiction to drugs, alcohol and gambling have often been cited as reasons for relationship breakdowns but the dawn of the digital revolution has introduced new addictions.”

“These now include online pornography, online gaming and social media, so it is no surprise to us that more and more people are having relationship problems because of our digital addictions. ”

“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.”

Bloody oath, better tell ya mate to pull his neck in before he loses it.
