Netflix divorce
 n.Gloss: A decision by a couple to have two Netflix accounts instead of one. «Netflix does not know how many of its accounts are for individuals and how many are for couples. There has been at least one “Netflix divorce,” in which a couple gave up on trying to share a queue and instead created two accounts, said a spokesman, Steve Swasey. The number of accounts with separate profiles is very small—so small that last year, Netflix announced it was doing away with the tool. The news was met with outrage.» —“Hey, Who Ordered ’Gigli’?” by Michael WIlson New York Times Mar. 27, 2008. (source: Double-Tongued Dictionary)
