Gen. Wesley Clark claimed he’s the victim of “general indignities” by his wife, in divorce papers that blame her for their marriage’s breakdown -- and not his alleged fling with a much-younger woman.Ah yes, general indignities. The wife resents him dating a girl less than half his age. No man should have to suffer such indignities. He is not running for President any more, and there is nothing like a hot young Chinese babe to feel young again.
The 68-year-old former NATO Supreme Commander is filing for divorce in Arkansas against Gertrude Kingston Clark, in hopes of ending their 46-year marriage.
Clark cited “general indignities” for the reason behind the divorce, according to the Daily Mail.
Under Arkansas Supreme Court guidelines, “general indignities” is a catch-all term that could include: “Rudeness, vulgarity, unmerited reproach, haughtiness, contempt, contumeliousness, studied neglect, intentional incivility, injury, manifest disdain, abusive language, malignant ridicule and every other plain manifestation of settled hate, alienation, and estrangement.”
Legal experts said “general indignities” is the equivalent of the standard, blame-less “irreconcilable differences” used in most states.
Arkansas divorces require the moving side to state reasons for the split.
The former Democratic presidential hopeful has been spotted this year, romancing 30-year-old New York fashion executive Shauna Mei.
Yes, someone filing for divorce must state a reason, but it is just boiler-plate buzz-words. The law allows anyone to bail out of marriage at any time and for any reason.
