STOCKHOLM, Jan 23 (Reuters) - A Swedish man, desolate after
his wife filed for divorce, converted the family's shares and
mutual funds into cash and burned the money -- 700,000 crowns
($81,300) in banknotes, a newspaper reported on Thursday.
"Bitterness is not uncommon in connection with divorces but
it is almost unique that one of the spouses puts fire to all
their wealth," Bengt Svensson, public prosecutor in the town of
Jonkoping in southern Sweden, told the daily Aftonbladet.

That's one way to keep her from getting half. I'm pretty sure there are no laws that can keep you from burning your own money. I wonder if she has any legal recourse to recover her half. What would happen if he took the money and blew it gambling? There's really no difference.Lt. D. Gordon
