The straw that broke the camel’s back…
A 99-year-old man is preparing to divorce his wife of 77 years, after he discovered she had an affair more than 60 years ago.
The couple, who have five children and numerous grandchildren and great grandchildren, are only identified as Antonio and Rosa.
Antonio discovered romantic letters from his wife to her secret lover during a clear out of their apartment in Rome.
The couple had tied the knot in Naples in 1934, where Antonio had met Rosa after he had been sent there to serve in the carabinieri paramilitary police but she had had an affair with her unidentified lover ten years later, keeping the secret to herself until now.
Lawyer Anna Orecchioni said:
“The husband decided to file for divorce after finding the love letters. He felt betrayed and unable to carry on with the marriage which has lasted 77 years. It made no difference that the letters were written more than 60 years ago and the relationship has been over for decades. He has decided to divorce her and the case has already been submitted for a court hearing in March. The couple have five children and numerous grandchildren and great children.”
“It’s a shame the marriage has ended in this way after such a long time together.”
Wow. Some people just aren’t forgiving.
