Police in Mexico's Yucatan province were called to the scene of a domestic disturbance in the town of Oxkutzcab, where they found a married couple's home burning in the aftermath of a fiery explosion. Witnesses told police that the fight between Juan Espinosa and Irma Contreras had escalated from mere argument to knife-throwing, shooting and eventually the use of homemade gasoline bombs. A local official confirmed the report to Reuters News.
Later, the couple tearfully embraced and reconciled their differences. Actually, not. They were described as "recovering separately" from their injuries suffered in the battle. Espinosa told reporters that he was glad his wife had suffered third-degree burns, while Conteras said she was sorry she had not "hacked off his manhood" during the fight.
Experts say that almost fifty percent of marriages end in knife-throwing, shooting and eventually the use of homemade gasoline bombs.
