Lawyer asks woman her reasons for wanting a divorce but she doesn't quite understand
Standing up in court, this woman was being questioned by the judge as he tried to settle her divorce between her and her soon to be ex-husband. But things weren't quite going to plan.
Divorce is never easy, and can become quite emotional for all parties involved. In this case, it wasn't the husband, wife, or any children that were becoming angry and frustrated, but rather the judge who was trying to get answers from the wife.
The judge was interviewing her regarding her pending divorce, and had a number of questions he needed to ask her in order to gather the facts of the case.
He started with one that usually turns into a long story with plenty of accusations: "What are the grounds for your divorce?"
Her responde surprised him though. She replied, "About four acres and a nice little home in the middle of the property with a stream running by."
Taken aback, he responded "No, I mean what is the foundation of this case?"
Again, there seemed to be a bit of confusion on her end. "It is made of concrete, brick and mortar," she responded.
"I mean," he continued, "What are your relations like?"
Instead of explaining the intricate details of her marriage with her husband, she started harping on about her family. "I have an aunt and uncle living here in town, and so do my husband's parents," she said.
He said, "Do you have a real grudge?"
"No," she replied, seeming to misunderstand this one too, "We have a two-car carport and have never really needed one."
Becoming exasperated with the woman, he took a deep breath before trying again: "Please," he said, "is there any infidelity in your marriage?"
"Yes, both my son and daughter have stereo sets. We don't necessarily like the music, but the answer to your questions is yes."
Again, a moment of pause was required to calm the judge before asking the next question. "Ma'am, does your husband ever beat you up?"
"Yes," she responded, "about twice a week he gets up earlier than I do."
Finally, in frustration, the judge asked her, "Lady, why do you want a divorce?"
"Oh, I don't want a divorce," she replied. "I've never wanted a divorce. My husband does. He said he can't communicate with me!"
Well, can't blame the poor man!
