“My wife is leaving me because of my Star Wars obsession. I said, ‘May divorce be with you‘“

“May the Force be with you” is a famous line from the Star Wars films. “May divorce be with you” is a popular joke.

“May Divorce Be with You” was an episode of the American medical drama television series Trapper John, M.D. that originally aired on October 23, 1983. “May Divorce Be With You! -Obi Wan Kenobi” was posted on the newsgroup rec.arts.sf.starwars.collecting on November 1, 1996.

“My wife is leaving me because of my major obsession with Star-Wars.I said ‘Well, may divorce be with you’” was posted on Twitter by eddy burton (and others) on August 26, 2011.


Wikipedia: The Force (Star Wars)
The Force is a binding, metaphysical, and ubiquitous power in the fictional universe of the Star Wars franchise created by George Lucas. Introduced in the first Star Wars film (1977), it is wielded primarily by the Jedi and Sith monastic orders and is a part of all subsequent Star Wars works, including the Star Wars Legends collection of comic books, novels, and video games. The line “May the Force be with you”, spoken in each of the Star Wars films, has become part of the pop culture vernacular and is iconic of the series.

Depiction
In the original Star Wars film (1977), later dubbed A New Hope, the Force is first described by Jedi Master Obi-Wan Kenobi:

The Force is what gives a Jedi his power. It’s an energy field created by all living things. It surrounds us, and penetrates us. It binds the galaxy together.

Later entries in the series would give added information on the nature of the Force.

All energy from the Living Force, from all things that have ever lived, feeds into the Cosmic Force, binding everything and communicating to us through the midi-chlorians.

I personally think they eventually settled down, married, got on each other’s
nerves, and split up. The title of the episode would have been, (to borrow a line
from Mad magazine, circa 1981) “May the divorce be with you”.

Hi,
For those who requested it, here is tab #1’s article. It’s from The Star, September 11, 2001 issue, page 28. As usual, there are some errors though they seem to get the gist of the problem. If you read the article in the current People magazine, the essential facts are the same.
