An 80 year old woman in Connecticut USA has filed a divorce case against her husband after she found out that he faked being deaf and dumb for 62 years. Dorothy Dawson in her divorce papers has said that her husband Barry Dawson never spoke a single word to her all the years they have been married. Dorothy further said that that she had put 2 years into learning sign language to communicate with her husband. Subsequently when she got good at the sign language her husband complained of vision problems which she said he was faking. Robert Sanchez Mr Dawson’s lawyer describe Barry’s behaviour as benign and something which should be seen in positive light as it ensured the survival of the marriage for so long.
