Fortnite is a social phenomenon, so much so that it is now the reason why a fair percentage of marriages in the UK didn’t work out.
Frankly, I don’t see the problem. I mean, what is hotter than seeing the other parent of your child and safe keeper of your heart run around a hyper-fictional place taking a shotgun to the mouths of the unemployed youth, then having that avatar perform a trendy dance one that they absolutely couldn’t do in real life. You’re married to a winner. They’ve won 67 games of Fortnite this season. Bae is no scrub, they got good. Yes, the dishes need washing, and the child needs attention, but the fictional tower they’ve built stands over all.
What could be hotter?
Well, according to 5% of the UK: divorce.
According to a new report from Divorce Online, 200 divorce petitions filed in the UK cited Fortnite as the primary reason.
“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,” said a Divorce Online spokesperson in the report.

I mean, I don’t want to judge, but wouldn’t that just mean a divorce would enable more Fortnite. You know, to escape?
