TIMBER!




The practice of tree marriage, reputedly practised by some Hindus in central India, has been actively discouraged only now, it would seem, to be taken up by environmentalists. Hence the reports of the wedding at the weekend between Richard  Torres, a Peruvian actor, and a tree dressed suitably for the occasion in a white tie.
Now I may be being cynical here but, as a divorce lawyer, should I be investing in orchards or even forests with a view to encouraging this practice? Also, does anyone know if there’s a legal procedure for divorcing a tree?

Actually, a marriage with a tree might last last longer than marriage with a person :)
