A 99-year old Italian man is filing for divorce after discovering letters from an affair his wife had 50 years ago.
According to The Telegraph, "Antonio C" (as he is referred to in court documents) confronted his wife of 77 years, 96-year-old "Rosa C," about the letters and demanded a divorce. She reportedly confessed but was unable to convince him to stay, though she has not contested the divorce, UPI reports.
Court papers indicate she wrote the letters during an affair in the 1940s.
According to Newser, the couple will become the world's oldest divorcees. That record was last set by British couple Bertie and Jessie Wood, who divorced in 2009 and age 98.
Antonio and Rosa have five kids, 12 grandchildren, and one great-grandchild.
