The government has ordered an Internet auction site to remove an advertisement in which a Brazilian man offered to sell his wife for about $50.
The Secretariat of Public Policies for Women announced late Friday it had ordered Mercado Livre, partially owned by eBay Inc., to remove the ad and warned it was violating a law banning the offer or sale of "human organs, people, blood, bones or skin."
The advertisement was no longer visible on the site Saturday.
It was posted by a man who gave his name as Breno and said: "I sell my wife for reasons I prefer to keep short ... I really need the money."
The described his wife physically and listed her qualities as a homemaker and companion. He reportedly said she was 35 and "worth her weight in gold."

Selling her is a one time shot at the big bucks, but imagine how rich he’d be if he just rented her out by the hour.
Maybe therein lies a hint of false advertising (re. her qualities.) One rental might be all he'd get before the truth was posted on the site.
Someone failed to tell the ole chap about the transmogrification of the female once that wedding ring is placed on her finger.
He didn’t realize that getting married is the cure for TOO MUCH SEX.
I don't know what all the fuss about 'Same Sex Marriage' is about!"
I'm heterosexual and I've had a 'Same Sex Marriage' since my honeymoon.

I recently tried to get a used truck for my wife.
Would have been the best trade I ever made.
