A crisis will bring people together or tear them apart and it seems that the coronavirus is making people sick...of each other. Look at some of the stars that have gotten divorced  including Michael Ray and Carly Pearce, and Kelly Clarkson

Speaking of divorce, here's a divorce joke for you: Why is a stock market crash worse than a divorce? Answer at the end. In the meantime, here are my thoughts on marriage on this "special" day.

Oh here's the answer: You lose half your money AND the wife is still around.
