    Default After 77 Years Of Wedded Bliss, 99-Year-Old Husband Files For Divorce

    You might think that once you've passed your 75th wedding anniversary, it'd be smooth sailing through the golden years of your marriage and then into the great beyond. But unfortunately that's not the case for one Italian couple who are getting divorced at the ripe old ages of 99 and 96, after an impressive 77 years of marriage.

    The trouble started a few days before Christmas, when the husband, Antonio, 99, was searching through an old chest of drawers and found some letters that his wife, Rosa, 96, had written to a secret lover. He became so upset by his discovery—even though the affair had happened way back in the 1940s!—that he immediately told Rosa he wanted a divorce. She tried to convince him otherwise, but there was no dissuading the cuckolded Antonio.

    The break-up will no doubt be upsetting to the couples five children, 12 grandchildren, and 1 great-grandchild, who must have come to take their elders' marriage for granted since it's lasted for the better part of eight decades! Though they did have a small hint of trouble ten years ago when Antonio and Rosa hit a rough patch. Antonio briefly moved to live with one of his sons, but he moved back in with Rosa a few weeks later. This split—if it ends up going through—will beat the previous old person divorce record, which was held by a British couple, Bertie and Jessie Wood, who ended their marriage when they were 98. But they'd only been married for 36 years, which certainly pales in comparison to Rosa and Antonio's 77-year union.

    Aw it's a shame he had to find out really. But I understand his reaction.

    meh, I don't blame him. she kept the letters for 70 years... must have been awfully important to her - more important than her marriage.
    Kill him.
    Kill her.
    Kill It.
    Kill everything... that IS the solution!

    I wouldn't bother at this point. How much more time would you have left? Plus the dating scene probably sucks at that age.

    You never know. I once knew a man in his late eighties (at the nursing home I volunteered at) who had 4 or 5 different girlfriends. He was holding hands with a different woman every day. His wife lived there too, but she didn't recognize him anymore.
