A MAN is wondering if the popular dating tactic of ‘ghosting’ would work on the wife of 12 years he shares a home and joint account with.
Martin Bishop came across the trend online and has been weighing up whether the passive-aggressive move would be an easy way to get out of the lifelong legal commitment he signed up to.
Bishop said: “It’s a bit logistically difficult as we’d still be living in the same house. Perhaps I could hide behind the sofa every time she comes home or live in the attic by day.
“Or I suppose I could move out and go stay at a mate’s, but it would probably take a few days to pack up my collection of mint prog rock vinyl. Donna would notice and that would remove the element of surprise, which seems quite crucial.
“Does it count as ghosting if you only talk through rude comments about each other you make to the children? Probably not.”
Donna Bishop said: “To be honest I’d be thrilled if he suddenly cut all contact with me and f**ked off without an explanation. I’d have a more sexually and emotionally fulfilling relationship with an actual ghost.”
