At the time, I wondered if I had the record for oldest client to get a divorce. I wasn't even close. That record can be found in the Italian courts. A 99 year old man is reportedly divorcing his 96 old wife after 77 years of marriage.
Apparently, poor Antonio had discovered that his wife Rosa was having an affair. He found a letter in an old chest of drawers to her lover. She had an affair in the 1940s. Despite having 5 children,
12 grandchildren and 1 great grandchild, it was the last straw for Antonio. Coupled with her constant yammering during the Italian Price is Right, drinking all of his Orange Juice, and making pasta with...gasp...sauce out of a jar, he couldn't take anymore. (Again, I can only surmise that this is what happened.) The Italian press reports that Antonio met Rosa in the 1930s when he was a young Carabinieri officer in Naples.
