Woman Cites ‘Fifty Shades Of Grey’ In Divorce

woman cites 50 shades of grey in divorce

Something tells me E.L. James never expected THIS! ‘Fifty Shades of Grey‘ has inspired a lot of things, but for this London couple, it inspired the wife to file for divorce. The woman is asking for a divorce because of her husband’s “unreasonable behavior.” The unreasonable behavior? Lack of interest in sex. The woman’s attorney explained to London’s Daily Mail:

“The woman had been reading the book and wanted to spice up her love life. She thought their sex life had hit a rut – he never remembered Valentine’s Day and he never complimented her on her appearance. So she bought sexy underwear in an attempt to get her husband more involved. She said, ‘Let’s make things more interesting’.

“But when he still didn’t take any notice she told him he had a boring attitude to sex and she was fed up. He went ballistic when he found out the name of the book she  was reading and told her, ‘It’s all because you have been reading that bloody book’.”

The husband reportedly has decided not to contest the claim of “unreasonable behavior” to avoid having to hear testimony about his, um, low libido in court. Poor guy! But this is a clear message to guys: Step It Up if your wife asks you to- LOL.

    This is a kill, but I can certainly see why it happened. When I first started “50 Shades of Grey” I discovered that my husband paled in comparison. However, as I read on, I also realized that although he’s a simple man, my husband has never put me through all of the crap that Christian put Ana through. Would I want to trade my much-more mundane life for hers? Absolutely not. It all made me appreciate my husband even more. So, some good can come from reading these types of novels!
