A judge, interviewing a woman regarding her pending divorce, asked, "What are the grounds for your divorce?"

"A couple of acres and a nice little home situated in the middle of the property with a stream running by," she replied.

"No, ma'am," the judge said, "I mean what is the foundation of this case?"

"It's made of concrete, brick and mortar," she responded.

"I mean," he continued, "What are your relations like?"

"I have an aunt and uncle living here in town, as do my husband's parents," she said.

"Do you have a real grudge?" asked the judge.

"No, we have a two-car carport and have never really needed one," she answered.

"Please," he tried again, "is there any infidelity in your marriage?"

"Yes, both of our children have stereo sets.

We don't necessarily like the music, but the answer to your question is 'yes'," she said.

"Ma'am, does your husband ever beat you up?" the judge asked.

"Yes," she replied, "once or twice a week he gets up earlier than I do."

Finally, in frustration, the judge asked, "Lady, why do you want a divorce?"

"Oh, I don't want a divorce," she replied.

"I've never wanted a divorce.

It's my husband who wants it.

He said he can't communicate with me."
