This aged well: Woman divorces husband for reading r/Bitcoin (aka cult of clueless idiots) and HODLing too much BTC... in 2014. Get ready to laugh.. extremely entertaining read.

The worst part is he didn't even TELL ME he did this. He gave me this arrogant response about doing what's best for us and our future kids.
