Grounds for Divorce

In the early 1950s, a woman in Germany went to court and asked for a divorce from the brute she had unfortunately married. She told the judge that her chief pleasure in life came from reading detective novels. Every time she brought home a new one, her husband would write the name of the murderer at the head of Chapter 1. She got the divorce.

OMG! That's probably grounds for murder, let alone divorce.
