Wedded Bliss

I may have mentioned a time or two on this blog that I have two count 'em two ex-wives. I was 'lucky at cards, unlucky at love' before I met the lovely lady to whom I am currently happily married.

My ex-wives weren't always the most pleasant people to be around. Granted, I'm not the easiest person in the world to live with, but still...

Anyway, they might have had their flaws, but at least they were duly appreciative when I remembered those special days in our lives with candy and flowers.

Unlike this harpy.
Incensed that her husband got her “the wrong flowers and candy” for Mother’s Day, a Florida woman allegedly pummeled her spouse, according to cops who arrested her for domestic battery.

Investigators allege that Virginia Stewart, 42, attacked her spouse during an argument early Sunday in their family’s Holmes Beach residence... Stewart quarreled with her husband about “the victim getting her the wrong flowers and candy for Mother’s Day.”

After Stewart “did throw cups around the room and break them,” she allegedly attacked her spouse, punching him several times while also striking the man in the head with a coat hanger.

Stewart’s husband suffered "bruising and contusions," noted cops, who added that the “injuries were highly visible on the left side of his face with contusions all over.”
All in all, he got off lightly. It could have been much worse. Remember Lorena Bobbitt?

The street where the Bobbitts lived.

Speaking of ex-wives, here's a couple of recent news stories that highlight some of the strange dynamics between exes.

You can't make this stuff up...

My ex left me for another man. I was going to send him a thank you card but was afraid he would send her back.

WSF - reminds me of the old WC Fields line: "She drove me to drink. That's the one thing I'm grateful to her for."

NFO - yeah, but sometimes you don't figure out they're crazy until it's too late.
