Mums don’t always know best

by duncanr

‘alternative’ medicine can sometimes effect a cure when ‘conventional’ medical treatment can’t

in part, this may be attributable to a placebo effect – the patient’s belief that the treatment will effect a cure results in a positive outcome

in other cases, the cure may be the result not of a placebo effect but because the alternative medical approach has triggered real physical/bio-chemical changes in the patient’s body that help to effect a cure

that said, you wouldn’t want this woman for your mother if you were suffering from constipation – just saying !

by duncanr

not now - I've got a headache

not now – I’ve got a headache

a Mumbai court has granted a man a divorce because of his wife’s unreasonable demands for sex –

[poor sod, I know exactly how he feels. My wife was just the same. Always demanding sex – even though it wasn’t Christmas or her birthday]

P.S. don’t feel too sorry for the wife. According to the husband, she has ‘an insatiable appetite for sex‘ and ‘used to force him into having unnatural sex‘. And on top of all that, she used to . . .

indian wedding1‘in sickness and in health . . .till death do us part’

these words form part of the vows couples in the UK make when agreeing to marry one another

I don’t know if the man and woman at a desi wedding make similar vows, but if they do, then I know of one man who doesn’t view that promise as binding !

Locked Fridge grounds for Divorce

by duncanr

chained fridgeA Mumbai doctor has been granted a divorce because of his wife’s unreasonable behaviour.

According to the husband – (the wife did not appear in court to refute his allegations) – she had refused, since 2004, to have sex with him.

Now while that denial might be regarded as regrettable (from the husband’s point of view), the wife might have had just cause to deny him any ‘jollies’  – perhaps he was a crap dancer? (

What undoubtedly caused the court to rule in the husband’s favour, however, was the wife’s practice of locking the fridge door

To deny a man access to his fridge and the ‘food’ stored within – –  the court no doubt felt to be not just ‘unreasonable’ but cruel and vindictive behaviour, a form of mental cruelty that some might call ‘domestic abuse’

P.S. real story here
