Old Couple Splits After Nearly 80 Years of Marriage

I read this article in Complex magazine and found it to be totally absurd. Correct me if I’m wrong, but isn’t marriage supposed to be “til death do us part”? On the flip side, in this day and age I guess it’s a little more acceptable in society for couples to call it quits before hopping in the grave… at the age of 99 though!? Seriously, why not just wait the extra few years and call it a career? (get the point?)

A 99 year old Italian man discovered letters that his wife had written way back in the 1940’s that expressed that she’d been involved in an extramarital affair. He immediately confronted his wife and once she confirmed that she did have an affair, he decided to proceed with ending their nuptials. Here’s the complete article from Complex for your literary pleasure.
