Rosa had taken a lover just 7 years into their 77 year marriage. But for some goofy reason Rosa kept the letters and forgot about them for 7 decades.
So now Rosa's secret's out. And Tony got pissed, not just a little bit either.
Married in Naples in 1934, the second world war was approaching. Antonio got a job in the Carabinieri paramilitary police working for the fascist Mussolini regime.
Though they have five 'kids' in their 70s, Antonio wants out! Lawyer Anna Orecchioni said: 'He felt betrayed and unable to carry on with the marriage...it made no difference that the letters were written more than 70 years ago....'
Wow...five more years Tony and Rosa would nailed the 82 year record. But it's all about love Italian style man, and some things can't be forgiven - no matter how long ago it happened. Do they even have a Match.com section for 99 year old divorced guys?
And oh yea, what was that other guys name again?
