We’d Hate to Meet the Mother-in-Law…

If you’re married, or even in a relationship, things can get pretty bad sometimes.  The fighting, the bickering, the nagging; and that’s just when she refuses you oral sex.  But the bottom line is that if ever things get too terrible, you can always end the relationship.

That is, unless you’re Santo Gambino, a 30-year-old man from Sicily who tried to get tossed in prison to get away from his wife and still couldn’t escape her.  Gambino, who apparently watched The Simpsons Movie one too many times and did time for “dumping hazardous waste” was transferred from prison to house arrest toward the end of his sentence.

And when he asked to be shipped back to prison to avoid being around his wife, the police did the only logical thing: they attempted to play marriage counselor.

Police charged him with violating the conditions of his sentence and made him go home and patch things up with his wife.

Apparently Gambino and his spouse had been fighting nonstop, reportedly about his “failing to pay for the upkeep of their two children.”  Maybe it’s just us, but we probably wouldn’t want to be around a woman who referred to raising kids as “upkeep” either.

But seriously, it says an awful lot about the state of your marriage when you prefer the gang rapes in the shower and the possibility of getting shivved on a daily basis to spending time with the missus.


It's probably also the only time a dude would look at this picture and say, "Sweet freedom!"
