    Lol.....From your link Canadian:

    'But she's said she lost contact with her husband at some point while at the airport and jumped in the sea to try to reach the ship after seeing it in the distance as it left port because she assumed he had changed his mind and was back on board."

    "Portuguese police confirmed today that Mr Brown had returned to Britain alone on Saturday night."

    The pair had cut short a 32 day tour from West Indies on day 28 - with cruise operator Cruise & Maritime Voyages offering them flights out of the Portuguese island to fly back to Bristol on Saturday evening.

    Who would book a 32 day cruise with their spouse? That's just asking for trouble imo.

    Obviously he didn't have a problem leaving without her...he may be in more trouble now.

    I would! I love being with my husband and he with me. We will be married 19 years this May and I hope it stays this way forever! Of course, not everyone can be married to Batman...

    Believed to have chased cruise liner the Marco Polo after row with husband

    Pair booked flights home but she was convinced he was back on board

    When ship passed the airport she decided to make chase carrying handbag

    Rescued by fishermen 1,600ft out and is now in hospital with hypothermia

    Husband Michael home but has made no comment regarding the incident

    Police have since ascertained that her husband boarded a flight to Bristol, England.

    Brown only had her handbag with her when a local fishing boat came across her in the Atlantic after midnight.

    Thanks for the laugh today!

    The sea temperature in the archipelago off northwest Africa was 18 degrees Celsius (64 Fahrenheit). She was taken to hospital with advanced hypothermia and was later moved to a psychiatric ward, Marques said.

    Poor woman seems to be suffering from a mental health issue. I hope she is able to get the help she needs.

    ‘She was barely conscious – she’s lucky to be alive. I don’t think she would have lasted another 30 minutes.’
    It’s thought her small handbag saved her life, by filling with air and becoming a buoyancy aid.

    Too be fair, I don't think she was being stupid. She's since been admitted to a psychiatric ward and appears to be suffering from mental health issues.

    At first we thought she had fallen from the cruise ship.'
    'She just said thank god, oh thank god when we found her – she was so cold she could hardly say anything, we just wrapped her up and phoned for help.'
    'It was very scary seeing this white face bobbing above the water – it reminded me of the film Titanic at the end where people were drowning.'

    Well, I love my husband , of 33 years, very much. But if we were on a 32 day cruise, I am thinking one of us might have jumped in and swum to shore at some point too. We have taken some nice vacations, but 2 weeks is about tops before we start nitpicking and bickering over nothing. LOL

    Asking for trouble? Really? My husband and I went to Italy for a month together and it was incredible. I guess we must really like one another

    I guess it depends on the couple. We did a 28-day cruise last year and it was wonderful. We're doing it again this year

    There's enough space on a cruise boat, and so much going on, that you really don't have to spend that much time in your travel companion's company unless you want to.

    I'm so glad they found her in time. Poor woman.
    Opinions expressed are strictly my own (who else would they belong to???)
