Talk about 50 Shades of Divorce. A British woman is divorcing her hubby because he wouldn’t try some of the S&M scenes from the “mommy porn” book, ’50 Shades of Grey’.
The middle-aged Banker was apparently stuck in a dreary sexless rut with her hubby. She tried buying sexy lingerie, but that didn’t get his juices flowing. So fresh out of ideas she suggested that they try out some of the S&M action from EL James’ book.
“The woman had been reading the book and wanted to spice up her love life,” her lawyer said. “She thought their sex life had hit a rut.”
But her husband wasn’t feeling it. Well, that’s a bit of an understatement.
“He went ballistic when he found out the name of the book she was reading and told her, “It’s all because you have been reading that bloody book.”
This, apparently, was the final straw for the wife, who filed for divorce, citing her husband’s “unreasonable behavior,” one of five grounds for divorce in English law.
You can blame the book all you want but there’s more to this story as to why this marriage crumbled. Maybe he was being tied up by another leading lady.
Serve up your thoughts.
