London, England- The novel “Fifty Shades of Grey,” which has been referred to as “mommy porn,” has been making waves since it was released. The novel is so successful it has two sequels and is soon to be a major motion picture. But now it is being cited as the impetus for the divorce between a high-powered banker and her husband.
A 41 year-old English woman bought the sexy novel about bondage and domination to spice up her love life with her husband who she described as “boring.” However her plan to add some excitement in the bedroom boomeranged when he accused her of “inappropriate behavior.”
The woman’s attorney Amanda McAlister said, “The woman had been reading the book and wanted to spice up her love life. She though their sex life had been in a rut,” adding that this was the first time the novel had been cited in a divorce petition.
When the woman, who is a banker making $600,000 a year, suggested she and her husband reenact out some of the fantasies in the novel, he went “ballistic” and blamed her for their marital breakdown.
There are a host of reasons a marriage is no longer working and when a couple cannot resolve their differences they need the help of an expert. A divorce attorney can guide a couple through the divorce process and help them settle the practical matters of property and asset division.
