This woman has actually filed for divorce through Facebook

What a time to be alive.

IN THE LATEST blow against the institution of marriage, a woman in the US will seek a divorce from her husband with a Facebook message.

Yes, that’s right.

The story broke on the New York Daily News website yesterday, and has been causing waves online since – because it might be the most ridiculous thing people have heard in quite some time.


The woman, named Ellanora Baidoo, has no other way to contact her husband – so the Manhattan Supreme Court is allowing her to serve the divorce papers through a Facebook message.

Baidoo will now Facebook message her husband Victor Sena Blood-Dzraku, below, with the necessary paperwork.

Of course, people have been taking the news with a combination of humour and bewilderment 

We’re just hoping no emoticons are sent along with the divorce papers themselves. That would really turn this situation into a laughing stock.
