Woman Sues Lawyers for Letting Her Divorce Hubby

A divorce means the end of marriage, right? Well, a British woman was apparently shocked to hear about this, the Independent reports. Jane Mulcahy even filed suit against her former lawyers for failing to explain the whole divorce thing. Mulcahy said they should have respected her Catholic faith and advised her to seek judicial separation—a process just short of full divorce. "The most striking of Mrs. Mulcahy's many allegations of negligence against her solicitors," noted the appeal judge, was that their advice failed to mesh with "her firmly held belief in the sanctity of marriage."

The judge duly struck down Mulcahy's appeal—but another unusual divorce case is still underway, involving a Kuwaiti woman who saw her husband eat peas with bread instead of a fork, the Daily Mail reports. She filed for divorce, saying she could no longer live with the man after witnessing the "shocking sight" of his poor etiquette.
