You know that treacly, 1970s soft-rock epic "Escape" by Rupert Holmes? In case you're under 50, It's about this swinging married couple who, unbeknown to each other, end up answering one another's' personal ads. They find that they both like Pina Colodas and getting caught in the rain, the feel of the ocean and the taste of champagne. The moral of the story is to not take your spouse for granted.
In Holmes' pop song, the illicit, anonymous relationship between spouses led to bliss in the dunes of a cave, but for a real-life Bosnian married couple, a similar online relationship brought only divorce and internet humiliation. Sana Klaric and husband Adnan, (AKA "Sweetie" and "Prince of Joy" in an online chatrooms) spent hours telling each other about their horrible marriage, then met for a date.
"I was suddenly in love. It was amazing. We seemed to be stuck in the same kind of miserable marriage. How right that turned out to be," Sana, 27, said.
Adnan, 32, said: "I still find it hard to believe that Sweetie, who wrote such wonderful things, is actually the same woman I married and who has not said a nice word to me for years".
The moral of the story is: You're a total tool if you fall in love in a chat room.
