You can take that as a literal if you like, after reading this story. I couldn't imagine why he wanted to be divorced from this insane lady.
"A woman attempting to reconcile with her estranged husband handcuffed herself to him as he slept and then bit him on his torso and arms as he phoned for help, police said.
Helen Sun, 37, told police she wanted to have a conversation with Robert Drawbough without him leaving. She changed the locks on their bedroom door and, while he was sleeping Monday, handcuffed herself to him, authorities said. Drawbough was able to dial 911 from his cellphone. Nearly out of breath, he told dispatchers he woke up handcuffed, was still bound to his wife and was holding her down, according to a recording released by police.
Dispatchers heard Drawbough scream in agony, apparently as his wife bit him."
You think you are in an unhappy marriage? Guess again. Here is the audio of the 911 call if you are interested. It's a dandy.
