Her anger, it was gathered, stemmed from her husband's attempt to end their 18-year-old marriage by filing a divorce suit against her, over allegations of constant fighting, nagging, intimidation and harassment by Florence, but she is however insisting that she will not quit the marriage because she already has five children and the marriage was consummated for life.
