99-year-old Divorces Wife
December 30, 2011 by staff
The man, identified only as ‘Antonio C,’ discovered letters from more than six decades ago that revealed his wife, named as ‘Rosa C’ in court papers, had been unfaithful.
The couple are now set to become the oldest divorcees ever, a record nobody would wish to hold. They’ll be taking the title from Brits Bertie and Jessie Wood, both 98, who split in 2009 after 36 years of being together.
Antonio C and Rosa C have been married for even longer than the Woods – 77 years. They met in the 1930s while Antonio served as part of the Italian Carabinieri in Rosa’s native Naples.
However, since finding letters from his wife’s old flame in a chest of drawers just prior to Christmas, Antonio has decided to call time on the marriage, despite much reported pleading from Rosa. Italian news agency UPI blames the split on the couple’s southern blood.
The pair have had five kids, 12 grandchildren and one great-grandchild together.
