Is Facebook Causing Divorces?

When it comes to the "I'm happy and well adjusted!" genre of social media performance, nothing is more puzzling than the consciously uncoupled couple that brags on Facebook about how much they "still love each other" and posts photos of themselves on Instagram having brunch.

Whatever happened to good old-fashioned bitterness and anger?

Luckily, scorned Iowa woman Catherine Marie Meisenburg is here to set s*** on fire and give us the kind of acrimonious divorce we all know and love. When her marriage dissolved, she posed for a divorce-themed photo shoot to commemorate the occasion, giving a literal middle finger to her (reportedly lying) ex.

Photographer Angela Josephine Ferraro told BuzzFeed that the shoot involved a "symbolic" element. Meisenburg starts out in her wedding gown and then — like a true bad b**** — rips it off to reveal a black corset and starts destroying s***.

Feel free to play "You Oughta Know" on full volume while looking at these photographs to really get the full effect.

The photos have since gone viral, prompting Ferraro to comment on her Facebook page about all the attention.

"We did these photos purely out of fun," she wrote. "We never thought in a million years that over 1 million people would see them."

(We have reached out for additional comment from both Ferraro and Meisenburg, and will update if we hear back.)

After 25 years of marriage, Linda filed for divorce. According to St. Petersburg Times, the settlement in 2009 gave Linda a 40 percent ownership in Hulk's companies, 70 percent of the couple's liquid assets and a 43 million 'property settlement.'

That means Linda walked away with $7.44 million. Hulk does not owe any alimony.

Heavyweight boxing champion Mike Tyson and actress Robin Givens were only married for a year, but she walked away with a reported $10 million.
