Unhappy in your marriage? Don’t take it out on the antiques!

I don’t mean to make light of marital disputes – because I believe wholeheartedly that marriage is the bedrock of civilized society – but this story, out of Ontario, Canada made me snicker just that little bit.

Domestic violence in any form is not funny, but it seems that a man – or a “guy” as the headline says – took out his frustrations not only on his wife, but also on her antique dresser. It’s not like he kicked it, or punched it, or broke a handle or a drawer or something, he actually took a chainsaw to it.

A chainsaw!

C’mon, man! Go to a counselor, seek mediation, take Prozac, anything. Just leave the antiques alone!
