Newlyweds Divorce Over
One woman is blaming her divorce on a plate of peas.
Al Arabiya News reported earlier this week that a newlywed Kuwaiti woman has filed for divorce a week into her marriage after discovering that her husband prefers to use bread, rather than a fork, to eat peas.

We heard the countdown starting and decided to stay outside. I started to cry and you kissed me, and then we started to make out. After a minute I felt something warm and realised that you pissed yourself. I pushed you away and that’s when you ran but I wish you had stayed. You peed on me but it’s OK! I just want to know who you are! Please reply and when you do tell me why I started crying so I know it’s you – if you remember.
In case you missed it, might we repeat, “You peed on me but it’s OK!” She’s basically writing her wedding vows. Blue hoodie with the bladder problem, get on it. (And maybe get some Depends, too.)
