9 Odd Things Einstein Asked From His Wife To Accept A Divorce!


Mileva Maric was the only female physics major at the Polytechnic in Zurich, where Einstein went to college. During their second semester, Einstein and Mileva began to take interest in each other. Their relationship developed into a romance that eventually led to marriage, in spite of strong opposition from Einstein’s family (especially his mother). But after some years, Einstein must have fallen out of love because he put the weirdest rules on their marriage!

Let's say somebody asked you to tell them who the most intelligent person in history is.


Most of you would probably say, Albert Einstein.

Some might say Nikola Tesla as well.

Albert Einstein, who was one of the most intelligent people of the world, made many important discoveries in mathematics and physics.


He developed formulas and theories that have enabled us to better understand the substance and its content, especially in the field of physics.

The love life of a person who provided such important contributions to the world was so interesting as well.


Especially with his first wife, Mileva Maric ...

The conditions they experienced before marrying and the conditions they adopted after marriage were quite 'interesting.'


After high school and college education, Einstein had the opportunity to study alongside the best professors of that time until 1900. He had the opportunity to learn many important sources of German science.

During that time, he met Mileva Maric, one of the few girls in the school, and they wanted to get married.


But they had to wait until his father's death in 1903 because he wouldn't allow him to marry a non-Jewish girl.

After marriage, they had two children, but their married life didn't go as they wanted, they came to the brink of divorce.


They decided to continue their marriage as they thought heir children wouldn' be able to handle it quite well, but Einstein had some 'confusing' conditions.

Here were Einstein's conditions:

A. You will make sure:


1. That my clothes and laundry are kept in good order;

2. That I will receive my three meals regularly in my room;

3. That my bedroom and study are kept neat, and especially that my desk is left for my use only.

B. You will renounce all personal relations with me insofar as they are not completely necessary for social reasons. Specifically, You will forego:


1. My sitting at home with you;

2. My going out or travelling with you.

C. You will obey the following points in your relations with me:


1. You will not expect any intimacy from me, nor will you reproach me in any way;

2. You will stop talking to me if I request it;

3. You will leave my bedroom or study immediately without protest if I request it.

D. You will undertake not to belittle me in front of our children, either through words or behavior.


Although Miley accepted these conditions at that moment, of course, over time, they began to be difficult for her.


Later, she left Einstein in Berlin just a few months after and returned to Switzerland, taking their two children with her.

The couple who lived separately for 5 years officially divorced in 1919.


Just a few months later, Einstein married his cousin Elsa. Mileva never married again.

The child Einstein left in Berlin at the train station in 1914 says:


Why am I so angry when talking about my dad? Do you not know? I thought everybody knew. My father left my mother, my brother and me in Berlin in August 1914. After that day, war was declared.
