Divorce 19th century style

I ran across this article and thought it was a little humorous.

Near the middle of one of Morgan County’s oldest cemeteries, an unassuming marker honors a man who was not unassuming.
It honors Civil War veteran James Kindred Williams, a father of 22, who arguably has one of the strangest divorce cases in the county’s history.
“He divorced his first wife because she wouldn’t sleep with him anymore,” family historian Calvin Spurlin said. “After 16 children, I don’t blame her. I wouldn’t sleep with him anymore.”
