An enterprising British attorney claims that her 41-year-old client is the first woman to file for divorce on the grounds that her husband failed to realize her Fifty Shades of Grey–inspired fantasy. According to the Daily News, "When the wife pressed her husband to try out some of the action from the book, ‘he went ballistic’ and blamed her for their marital meltdown." "It’s all because you have been reading that bloody book," the husband, who makes more than $600,000 a year as a banker, reportedly said. Fifty Shades divorces sound like a promising cottage industry to anybody else?
