Traffic has been a reason for a lot of problems but has it also been a reason for divorce?

Indian state Maharashtra's former Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis' wife Amruta Fadnavis has claimed that Mumbai's traffic is the cause of three per cent of divorces in the city. 

“Whenever I say anything, I say it as a common citizen. Whenever I go out, I see several issues including potholes and traffic which concern us. I go out as a common woman. Do you know how many divorces are happening due to the traffic jam? 3 per cent divorces happen because people cannot give time to their families. When will you address these issues?" claimed Amruta. 

Her remarks went viral on social media and garnered tons of reactions.

Potholes have always been a problem in this Indian city. Earlier in September, the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) had claimed that it had fixed over 31,000 potholes on city roads.
