Hawaii's Fiery Lovers to Enemies Myth

Season 3 Episode 5 | 10m 47s

Not all marriages are love stories, and some of them are meant to end. The Hawai’ian volcano goddess Pele was briefly and disdainfully married to the half-pig demigod Kamapua’a before their ugly breakup. This story will allow us to comment on rising divorce rates from a modern feminist angle that sees the advantages of more women having the freedom to leave bad marriages.
