Conclusion

Sometimes people get into big fights over small things. This is a true story from the history of divorce in Memphis.
One couple tried to get divorced, the case went to court, the matter was tried, and the case was so bad the judge threw it out of court. The parties had to work out a settlement if they were going to get divorced at all. With the help of their very expensive attorneys, and after much yelling and fighting, they had sold their house, set alimony, sorted out parenting, and agreed to child support. They got down to dividing the contents of the house, and as they were about to finish they came upon seven crystal goblets.

The wife said, “I want four and you can have three so that our two children and my dear mother can come over for dinner and discuss the problems you have left us with.”

The husband responded, “I’ll take the four goblets and you can have three so that I can have my two children over for dinner along with my girlfriend, and the children can see how a man and a woman who love each other behave.”

The yelling and screaming began again. One of the attorneys had all that he could take. He grabbed a goblet, threw it into the fireplace, and shattered it. He said, “Now you each have three and you can bill me for the broken one.”

That ended the case.
