Hindu women, in India, are not permitted to adopt children unless there is something seriously wrong with their husband. Even an abandoned woman cannot adopt unless divorced from their husband. This looks to be mostly an inheritance issue.
OK, it is officially a bad day for British marriage. According to a (possibly biased) poll by a UK solicitor 59% of women interviewed would get out of their deal immediately if not for the collateral concerns (money, feelings, et al).

Before everyone draws too many conclusions from this, keep in mind that it was conducted by a legal office trying to educate people about the value of mediation.
Spiderman and his wife Mary Jane just split up. And now New York's favorite superhero is on the prowl.
Superstar comedian Eddie Murphy was recently wed to Tracey Edmonds. And then divorced two weeks later.

A court in Italy ruled that someone can record their own sex sessions without the knowledge of their partner provided that they do not distribute the footage. This comes after a man almost had to spend four months in jail for taping his lovemaking to his ex-girlfriend. We're shocked that it didn't end up online. And he actually gave the tapes to her. That means that he's actually a pretty decent guy, in our book.
Evidence has been found in fossilized dinosaur remains that they had sex as adolescents. Paleontologists found specialized tissue (for forming eggshells) in the fossils of several less than fully grown female dinosaurs. Either all teen dinosaurs were having sex or some older male dinos were just on the prowl for teenage females.
After telling the press that they'd be the last to know if he got married, it looks like French president Nicolas Sarkozy might have gotten married. Sarkozy has been date Carla Bruni for a couple of months now and the time felt right, we suppose.
In 1492, Columbus made it to the New World. In 1495, Syphilis broke out in France. Coincidence? Some scientists think not. Tracing the venereal strain back, it appears most consistent with the South American variety. Other scientists are skeptical. We're just bummed to find out that his legacy may be tarnished by this and the revelation that other people beat him to the New World.
