—Viagra divorcee n.
The middle-aged housewife says her husband became 'sexually aggressive' after being prescribed the tablet to boost their sex life.
Now she has successfully petitioned for divorce on the grounds it amounted to unreasonable behaviour.
It is the first known case of 'Viagra divorce' in Britain and experts believe there could be more to follow.

Initially, the Viagra divorce cases were the result of "men straying from marriage," popping a pill seen as the fountain of youth,
he says. Then came "cases of men taking Viagra, but their wives
were no longer interested in sex. And now, a lot of middle-aged
women are having affairs with older men who were impotent before
there was Viagra."

Maybe there hasn't been a Viagra divorce yet. But with doctors writing Viagra prescriptions at a rate of 215,000 per week, just give it time. Next on "Jerry Springer": MY HUSBAND LEFT ME FOR HIS VIAGRA TRAMP!
