Conservative Christians like to depict marriage as a phenomenon that makes people more responsible, godly, loving (strange, I thought the Bible says that activity is up to the indwelling Holy Spirit?)
Well, here’s another example of how marriage does not always make a person more godly or mature.

Japanese police investigating a so-called “Black Widow” who could be behind the deaths of six partners have found traces of cyanide in soil from her pot plants, reports said Friday.
Chisako Kakehi, 68, who was arrested last month on suspicion of murdering her 75-year-old spouse, received one billion yen (£5.4million) in insurance and other payouts over 10 years following the deaths of husbands and lovers, media have said.
Police believe she killed Isao – her fourth and most recent husband – with cyanide in December last year.
Investigators who tested plant pots she had taken to a recycling centre about six months after her husband died discovered a bag at the bottom of a planter. Lab results showed the presence of cyanide compounds, according to Kyodo News.
Since the death from illness of her first husband in 1994, Kakehi had reportedly been involved with more than 10 men, six of whom had perished.
