Couple breakup after 50 years of marriage because the man failed to wish her on Facebook for 50th anniversary

24, Nov 2017 By RT

Bengaluru. In a freaking, bizarre sequence of events, a married couple of 50 years, broke up with their marital vows and filed for divorce, it is learnt by Faking News. Saying that the 1955 Hindu Marriage Act with a statutory cooling period of six months does not apply for the couple as both of them were born before 1955, the court had granted the divorce with immediate effect, it is further learnt by Faking News.


“Neither the man nor the woman could clearly remember the sequence of events. The man remembers from the moment he heard something about Facebook and that something was not posted and a divorce is sought after for the grave mistake. The woman remembers upto the moment when someone mentioned to her that the old man had lost it and did not wish her in Facebook. She immediately asked that her husband is penalised with a divorce and went into a short-term coma for 2 days” the next-door neighbour told Faking News.

“This is a very serious social issue. Where are we going as a society? What has happened to our traditional family values? I know uncle and aunt for the past 40 years. They are a lovely couple. When I came to know that they are celebrating the 50th anniversary of their marriage, the first thing I did was to wish them in social media. When I checked all the wishes, I was surprised that uncle didn’t wish her. Also, he didn’t as much click on like for any of the other wishes in Facebook. I told my wife to clearly mention this to aunt” another neighbour and splitsville specialist told Faking News.

“I didn’t ask for a diamond ring as in jewellery promotional sales. I didn’t ask for a foreign holiday like that Vodafone advertisement. All I needed was a 50 likes for my man’s Facebook post on our anniversary. I lost face in front of my friends and immediately booked him in for a divorce” the lady explained the reason behind her decision using the words Face and Book together first and separate immediately thereafter.

This is 50th such occurrence in as many weeks, a social media addict from the  erstwhile garden city told Faking News. Knowing the development, a law firm has formed a new team to handle social media based divorces, it is further learnt by Faking News.
