4. Bedroom Surprise
As the eighteenth century author William Congreve wrote, “Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned”. And this case might have just proved him right.
Our solicitors aren’t here to judge, we’re here to advise. As such, we’ll let you make your own mind up about the following case.
This case took place on our very own shores in the UK. The lady in question was in a toxic relationship with her husband who she said had been a nightmare and beaten her.
So what did she do? Naturally she started divorce proceedings.
And following that, one night while her husband blacked out on the sofa from drinking, she smashed up a mirror and hid the fragments underneath the bedsheets ready for when her husband turned in for the night.
We don’t know what happened afterwards, but suffice to say, we can’t recommend you doing this. While she might have felt better, she could also have put herself at risk of prosecution.
Our solicitor’s divorce advice? Avoid conflict at all costs. Not only can it lead to retaliation, it could also lead to you being disadvantaged when factors such as child custody are involved.
