'Over the first two days of Christmas I have realised that we simply don't belong together any more,’ she wrote. ‘I would like to give up my husband. I am happy to negotiate the price. But no exchange. Please send me inquiries over email.'
She added that the husband could be ‘road tested’ on Boxing Day, choosing the price in question as it’s her ‘lucky number’.
'The advert was very well received,’ she told a local newspaper.
‘I got a lot of positive feedback and someone sent me a lot of smiley emoticons. I didn't want to make a drama out of it at all. It was just for some amusement.'
And if you’re wondering what her husband thought of being put up for sale on eBay, he said he didn’t even realise until he read it in the local paper. I guess that says a lot, right?!
