I believe this story could lead to a new Golden Age of Comedy

A group of rabbis face kidnapping charges after allegedly arranging assaults of Orthodox Jewish husbands to persuade them to grant divorces to their wives, authorities said Thursday.


It all reminds me of a joke I heard a long time ago:

Q:  Why do Jewish divorces cost so much?
A:  Because they're worth it.

Additionally, I wonder if many of the wives might have stayed in the marriage, if offered the beating-only option.
