The wife's solicitor, Amanda McAlister, one of Britain's leading matrimonial lawyers, says she believes it's the first time the book has triggered a divorce. Ms McAlister said: "The woman had been reading the book and wanted to spice up her love life. She thought their sex life had hit a rut - he never remembered Valentine's Day and he never complimented her on her appearance. So she bought sexy underwear in an attempt to get her husband more involved. She said, "Let's make things more interesting".
The problem is that the book includes sexual bondage and S&M - something the husband was not at all down for. He refused her advances so she filed for divorce, citing "his lack of adventure is evidence of unreasonable behavior - one of five grounds for divorce under family law." He isn't contesting the filing.
Part of me is like suck it up man, being forced to have sex with your wife can't be all that bad. Then again, another part of me thinks divorcing your husband because he won't do S&M with you is kind of weaksauce. Thoughts people?
