Happy people have sex, divorce causes death, deathly revenge, teen-mother envy.
A 30-year Springer study found that happy people are watching less TV and having more sex. Surprise, surprise!
Reuters Health reported a study this week that parents of a child with ADHD are almost twice as likely to divorce before the child’s 8th birthday.
Also likely to divorce: couples with monstrous mother-in-laws. In Italy, a man was granted divorce for his nagging mother-in-law. He’s seeking an orphan as his next partner, according to The Daily Times in Pakistan.
There’s even worse news for divorcees this morning. The Local reports a Rostock University study done in Germany found that people who get divorced die an average of nine years earlier than those who don’t.
Today Gawker alerted us to the story of Carol Anne Burger, a Huffington Post blogger who stabbed her ex-lover in the neck with a screwdriver 222 times and then shot herself before police could question her. Burger, 57 and her ex, Jessica Kalish, 56, had broken up but for financial reasons were still living together in the condo they'd purchased in 2000. While they worked with a lawyer to sell the house and divide their assets (they were married in 2005), they spent time on opposite sides of the apartment.
Why do some women exact revenge? One woman explores the phenomena of the crazy ex.
I always seem to find myself attracted to men with vengeful ex-girlfriends. My boyfriend during college had an ex-girlfriend who was so bitter about my existence that she decided to enact revenge not only on him by spreading lies to all their friends, but she also took out her aggression on me by taking the most unflattering photos of me at a campus party — where I may or may not have been participating in a Flip Cup beer championship — and sending them over campus email for a menagerie of people to view. Why do I have this problem? Am I attracted to the wrong kind of man — the type that loves you and then breaks you? Or have all the men in my life really dated women who my girlfriends and I like to refer to as "psycho" as we sit around and dissect their mutated personalities? My guess is both — I have always tended to fall for men who are charmers but that still doesn’t explain the all-consuming hatred the exes have toward the guy or myself.
Apparently, the wife received a text message obviously not meant for her. She arrived home soon after to discover her husband in their bedroom with some incriminating black lacy drawers and a used condom under the pillow. (Ew...not a good place for that, dude.)
Both the "tart's knickers," as she calls them, and the rubber wrapper were up for sale on eBay, but the company pulled the panties citing a rule about no used underwear sales. So this bitter lady made do with an equally humiliating pic and description!
A cuckold has made life really difficult for a semi-famous banker.
A cuckold living in the UK has been waging a one-man campaign against an American investment banker. It turns out the banker had relations with the man's wife a few years ago. The cuckold's marriage ended recently and that seemed to be the impetus for a vicious internet smear campaign. The internets just ain't as safe as they used to be.
Mental Floss has a juicy top-five list up: "Five Scorned Women Get Their Revenge." But it's a chin-scratcher! Yeah, yeah, we understand Mental Floss is all smart and stuff, but we're unfamiliar with almost all of historical these tales of revenge. Boudicca? Lady Mao? The Chochiti tribe? I'm sorry, who?
Maybe Mental Floss had no choice but to dip way far back into both history and obscurity. Despite the adage "hell hath no fury like a woman scorned," there aren't a lot of contemporary examples -- other than the extreme ones, like Lorena Bobbitt and Ivana "Don't get mad, get everything" Trump. But damned if I'm ever going to let a member of the Trump family serve as an example for anything. (I, for one, almost stuff the contents of a takeout sushi dinner in ex's dresser drawers after being dumped -- but emphasis on the almost!)
