Welcome to Bad Marriages

True crime. Dead spouses. Who killed them?

Bad Marriages end in death. One spouse is a murderer, usually motivated by adultery or greed.

Bad Marriages are everywhere! Over 12% of American murders are committed by a family member.

Recent Bad Marriages has the latest true crime homicides in the news.

Some convicted murderers are innocent.

  • Spouses are convicted of murders without direct evidence.
  • Some police departments failed to follow up on leads.
  • Some lawyers failed to interview witnesses and present evidence.
  • Some evidence was not allowed.
  • Some evidence was allowed, because there was no real evidence.

Children and Families

Children do not select their parents. Children lose both parents from a Bad Marriage.

Families divide, arguing for innocence and guilt. Unwitting children are used to kill parents.

Why Bad Marriages?

My name is Mitchell D. Miller, a former husband, with three divorces. One ex-wife threatened to kill me. I was gone after one threat.

Bad Marriages are fascinating. Why does a spouse continue to live with their killer after threats? How can people get married without checking their partner’s history? How are murderers convicted without direct evidence?

I hope you enjoy Bad Marriages. Send me a note, if you have questions or suggestions. Browse products for protection, if you are worried about your spouse.
