Football Manager Cited As The Reason Behind 35 Divorce Cases

It can be a slog this relationship malarkey but I've found a good ol' fashioned save on Football Manager can cure the hangover or an argument or two.

That being said, this absolutely wonderful management simulation can take over your life.

In years gone by, we've seen wedding DJ's loading up FM whilst in the middle of dropping bangers at the Parkville Hotel in Glasgow,.

There was also that bloke who was awarded a place in the Guinness World Record book after he played a single game for 154 seasons.

Reddit user Lorf_Yimzo went one step further and played 1000 years on Football Manager 2015 because people needed to know that in the late 2600's, Crystal Palace won 15 titles in 26 years to become one of the best teams in world football.

What I'm trying to say is, the Football Manager franchise can make or break a relationship.

In fact, the video game was cited as a factor in 35 divorce cases back in 2012, according to Iain Macintosh's book: Football Manager Stole My Life.

When it comes to Football Manager, blood, sweat and tears can be shed over a truly magnificent save but to ruin your marriage after taking Workington from the Northern Premier League to the Champions League in 10 seasons? Hmm.

That being said, you're reading about a man who once ordered a Cruziero shirt because of his legendary FM 2008/09 save.

YouTuber Quill Glaude has outdone me, though. The Canadian took his Football Manager dream one step further by travelling to Somerset Park to watch Scottish Championship side Ayr United.

The 36-year-old, who has over 400,000 subscribers, spoke about his incredible journey that inspired Football Manager fanatics like myself to go and achieve your gaming dreams.

Fair play to you, Quill.
