Wife Divorces Husband Because He Brought His Mommy On Their Honeymoon

By Robert Paul Reyes

"A furious 36-year-old Italian woman has filed for divorce just a month after her wedding because her husband brought his mother on their honeymoon, ANSA news agency reported Wednesday.


As the couple set off for their honeymoon to France in December, the newly-wed was shocked to find her new mother-in-law at Rome`s Fiumicino airport, all set to come on the trip, the agency cited her lawyers as saying.

When she protested, her husband of two days said he couldn`t leave his mother alone for health reasons."


A marriage can survive a wife discovering that her husband had sex with the hotel maid on their honeymoon, but there is no hope for a marriage when a dude brings his mother along on his honeymoon.

If this dude`s mother was well enough to put up with the rigors of air travel, she could and should have stayed home.

Italy is chock full of Mama`s Boys, and if this story were printed in an Italian newspaper folks would wonder why such an unexceptional story made the news.

The woman did the right thing and as soon as they returned home from their honeymoon she filed for divorce claiming "excessive emotional attachment" between her loser husband and his mother.

The loser is now free to spend the rest of his life with his mother.
