Couple throw knives, bombs at each other
News.com.au ^ | 3/14/2006 | Staff

Posted on 03/13/2006 7:23:59 PM PST by Excuse_My_Bellicosity

A MEXICAN couple were recovering separately after a marital spat got out of control and saw them firing guns, throwing knives and hurling homemade bombs, Mexican daily Milenio said yesterday. In scenes taken straight out of hit romantic comedy Mr and Mrs. Smith starring Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, Juan Espinosa and Irma Contreras fought until their house blew up in a homemade gasoline bomb explosion, the paper said.

Police called to the home in the indigenous Mayan Indian town of Oxkutzcab in the southeastern state of Yucatan arrested Mr Espinosa. Ms Contreras was taken to hospital with third-degree burns.

A local police official confirmed the report but declined to provide further information.

In the violence-filled movie about the fictional Smiths, Pitt and Jolie play married assassins ordered to kill each other.

Mr Espinosa told reporters he was glad his wife had suffered burns, while Ms Contreras said said she was only sorry she had not "hacked off his manhood" during the fight.

Seems like that's a common feeling among certain types of
women.
Fortunately, I don't know any like that.

Maybe they were fighting over her taking his last name.

Something about your screen names drew me to this thread.

Not sure what it is.

There's a good sign that the honeymoon is pretty much over.

That lends all new meaning to "be careful, she/he has a tendency to go off."

I did too. Flying ashtrays and lamps can be hazardous to one's health.

We trained professional counselors know to look for these subtle signs of a fraying relationship...

Hi All-

I wonder how much and what type of gunfire was exchanged. Sounds pretty cool!

I knew an older couple who were fighting at their rural home. She grabbed the shotgun and fired it at him twice, hitting him once in the neck. He was bleeding profusely from the neck and she told him to drive himself to the hospital because she had to go out and milk the cow. He did drive himself to the hospital and she did milk the cow. She also went to jail when the hospital reported the shotgun wound although the husband tried to convince the authorities it was "no big deal."

Aaaah....true love!
