50 Shades of Grey mania has reached new levels as it now seems to breaking up marriages.
A British woman is divorcing her husband after he refused to re-create scenes from the best selling novel.
The wife has filed divorce papers claiming that her husband's "boring attitude" to sex is cause for "unreasonable behaviour" – one of the five grounds for divorce in the UK.
The divorce comes four months after another British man was charged with common assault for squirting his girlfriend with steak sauce for refusing to stop reading the book.
The wife in question apparently bought E.L James hit 50 Shades of Grey to heat things up in her marriage.
The wife's attorney, Amanda McAlister, explained, "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.' "
Apparently the husband did not take kindly to being cajoled into taking part in kinky activities.
McAlister added, "He went ballistic when he found out the name of the book she was reading and told her, 'It's all because you have been reading that bloody book.' "
The husband is agreeing with the unreasonable behaviour claim in order to speed up proceedings.
