Worst Marital Breakup Ever?

As coauthor of a book on the subject, I feel qualified to nominate this one for the Bad Divorce Hall of Fame.

A New York surgeon who donated a kidney to his wife now wants it back as part of their separation agreement or, failing that, $1.5 million in damages.

He claims his wife began having an affair two years after he gave her the kidney and caused him emotional distress. "I felt humiliated, betrayed, disrespected and disregarded as a person, a man, a husband, as a father," he says.

It was, as his attorney might put it, like a blow to the solar plexus of a biologically impaired spouse. No word on what he plans to do with the kidney if he gets it back.

Are you trying to say ... the husband is pissed?
