World’s Oldest Divorce

a spouse due to marital infidelity is sadly not uncommon. But what is
newsworthy is how a 99-year-old Italian man divorced his wife after learning
of that she had an affair … 60 years ago!

The Italian man, identified by lawyers in the case only as Antonio
C, was rifling through an old chest of drawers when he made the discovery
a few days before Christmas.

Notwithstanding the time that had elapsed since the betrayal,
he was so upset that he immediately confronted his wife of 77 years,
named as Rosa C, and demanded a divorce.

Guilt-stricken, she reportedly confessed everything but was unable
to persuade her husband to reconsider his decision.

She wrote the letters to her lover during a secret affair in the
1940s, according to court papers released in Rome this week.

The couple are now preparing to split, despite the ties they forged
over nearly eight decades – they have five children, a dozen grandchildren
and one great-grand child.
