Wife spanked for attempting divorce


marital spanking 1911It is surprising what you can find at the US Library of Congress. This was taken from a special edition of the New York Sun-Syracuse Herald from 5 March 1911.

Apparently earlier that month in Evansville, Indiana, the Kueblers hit upon an alternative to divorce.

“I don’t kneed a lawyer to fight a divorce case,” said Frank Kuebler when told his wife had sued him.

Kuebler is a wealthy farmer and an educated man. His wife charged him with cruel treatment. As soon as he was informed of the suit he drove home and there faced his wife. Then according to witnesses and his wife’s own account he took his wife across his lap and spanked her with a slipper.

Then Kuebler and his wife came to her lawyer’s office where she directed the attorney to immediately dismiss the suit for divorce.

“My wife didn’t want a divorce and I soon showed her she didn’t,” Kuebler later told reporters.
