99-Year-Old Divorces Wife After Discovering 1940s Affair

An Italian couple are to become the world’s oldest divorcees, after the 99-year-old husband found that his 96-year-old wife had an affair in the 1940s.

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.

    They are not calling it rdnabing, but ‘re-branding’ which hints at a previous attempt (which must have failed, of course). I think the Professor rushed into this whole re-branding business.The project sounds like a very impulsive thing, like she’s trying to make an impact very early and very fast. This is not NAFDAC, it’s a whole new ball game. They are trying to sell a product, which is the Nigerian image and of course to try and change our mental states as Nigerians.If you ask me, the thousands of Nigerian bloggers and writers have been doing this polishing for a long time. If she had done her homework, all the Ministry needed to do was reach out…create a forum around this their ‘re-branding’ brouhaha, get people involved (not with money), create virals, videos on youtube, images and badges to be put on blogs…you know…let the foreigners that they are trying to woo see and experience a growing change. Not a giant leap from corrupt country to re-branded country.When that is in motion, we can move on to other things. The hardest part of this re-branding shizzles is the crime and corruption that has been so entrenched and embedded in our system. How do we get the ‘foreigners’ to believe us when we celebrate the criminals and murder/imprison the good; when the Foreign Affairs Minister denies simple truths like the ‘We do not have gays in Nigeria’ issue.I know Akunyili means well, but this particular product: I AIN’T BUYING IT !
