Husband abandons Wife and kids.
Under religious Jewish law, Wife is stuck in limbo and cannot divorce or remarry.
Wife tries but, despite best efforts, is unable to locate Husband.
Twenty years go by.
Wife learns that the Husband is incarcerated in Israel.
Rabbis intervene with the Husband on the Wife’s behalf.
And Husband agrees to sign off on papers giving the Wife a divorce.
After twenty years.
Now that’s a slow divorce. Makes any American state’s family court system look fast by comparison.
Well illustrates that “things could always be worse”.
