Today Facebook launches its highly anticipated IPO. So naturally we wanted to bring you a Facebook divorce story.
Laura Weisman reports in the San Francisco Chronicle that a woman in India has filed for divorce because her husband had not updated his relationship status on Facebook. He was still listed as “single instead of “married”. He says he was distracted with family and business and forgot to change it.
The couple had an arranged marriage just two months ago. The judge has ordered the couple to undergo counseling over the next six months.
Apparently, there are several cases in India where spouses in arranged marriages have asked the court to divorce them on flimsy reasons, such as who makes the tea or failure to take an in-law’s phone call.
