Kisses and Divorces.
A good deal of stress is laid on
kissing and non-ki&sing in recent
divorce eases. One man who sued
for divorce admitted he hadn't
kissed his wife for 25 years be
cause "she was as cold as a marble
statue." Another young woman
in applying for divorce complains
that she hadn't been kissed for
two long years. But the funniest
of the lot was when a divorced
woman called to get her Sao
monthly alimony, and because her
erstwile hubby wouldn't kits her
she refused the twenty.
