But one day, after an incident occurs the wife informs the husband that she had "submitted the divorce papers." The former husband and wife, or rather strangers to each other now, somehow end up continuing to live together under one roof...On the other hand, another couple has discovered a "hidden shocking truth." Their marriage seemed to be a happy one but was it really!? What does "marriage" mean? What does it mean to be a "husband and wife"?

01 So much pain and suffering.
Marriage is like being tortured for a long long time
02 If only you would just drop dead 11.0
03 The other couple's secret and truth 10.8
04 Why don't you just admit it already!? I've already come to realize this a long time ago!?
You don't love me! You only love yourself!
05 No, I'm not ever gonna say that you shouldn't cheat on others.
Every guy feels that way one way or another. If I could, I would cheat!
06 Because men are childish, women end up like this.
In the end, a wife has 2 choice, becoming a strict wife or a crying wife.
It's so stupid. Being a husband and wife is such a joke
07 Even though I was the one who decided to break this off, I can't help but feel a bit lonely.
But one day if I ever wanna see you, or if I ever want to talk to you...
08 Going out on the town, taking initiative and talking to someone you happen to meet,
wanting to sleep with just anyone, what if you become that type of person...
why not, shall we sleep with each other just this once?
09 I don't think that divorce is the worst case scenario.
I think that it's the worst thing to be with someone you have no love or expectation for.
The next time you marry, I hope that it is for the absolute best
10 Why don't you just become the child's father!?
Isn't that the best way to get around the problem?
It's not so much about the responsibility per se but shouldn't you look after them?
11 To be honest, it's so hard. I thought that marriage was a torture, but I was wrong.
Marriage is like a food chain. I just shut up and wait to be eaten.
Oh so much pain and suffering. It's 4 times harder
Average 11.8
