Nagging as divorce cause

The 1947 case of DeWaal vs. DeWaal established nagging as legitimate grounds for divorce (in Nebraska). I assume this was before the availability of no-fault divorce. (A quick google search reveals that Nebraska only adopted a no-fault divorce law in 1972.)

Note that Mrs. DeWaal argued that her husband was at fault (and not herself) because he went to motion picture theaters and read "sensational magazines."

Bobbitt v2.0h NO!

Taking her lead from the famed Mrs. Bobbit, Mrs. Feng Lung of China not only counted coup once but snuck into the hospital to redo the act a second time.

The UPI has all the details but, alas, has omitted the instruction manual. Maybe Fiskars has something you ladies may find helpful.

His wife was his aunt

I can't quite figure out what dentist Jeffrey Gordon was up to. Was the plan to annul his marriage in order to remarry his wife to make their marriage fully legal? That's what I'm assuming. The law legalizing marrying your aunt-by-marriage must not have been retroactive. But evidently his wife didn't fully trust him. So there must have been more to the story.

John and Mary Newlywed

image

In 1925 and 1926, Popular Science featured the antics of "John and Mary Newlywed," a young married couple so stupid they did everything wrong around the house. In the instance above from March 1926, John and Mary--despite having perfected anti-gravity as attested to by the unsupported car--are about to blow themselves up and smother themselves with gas fumes.

I regret the Newlyweds did not have a longer run. They would have been the Gallant-less Goofuses of the hobbyist set.
