To the best of my knowledge, no. Sometimes this stuff just happens.

Of course they are, why else would they have the same name.

Apparently, some people are finally taking the usual DTMFA advice to heart.

Did you read both questions? One has two kids, the other doesn't have any kids. It's a coincidence.

Details don't match. Just a sad day for couples. Hell, I'm gonna go home and start a fight right now.

One has two kids, the other doesn't have any kids.

With that kind of fundamental disagreement, I knew it could never last.

These kinds of questions are common enough for anon; since they get approved in batches, I'm surprised there haven't been two adjacent ones before this. It was just a matter of time.

I think it's interesting that the man-leaving-wife question had 15 comments, while the woman-leaving-husband question has only 2 comments.

Err yeah, some people are taking the guy to task for seemingly resenting his wife for getting pregnant.

Nothing personal but I don't think we need a sidebar thread for those threads, the one of them is sort of messy already. I'm going to close this one up.
