Maybe you remember that young Ukrainian couple who made headlines on Valentine's Day by chaining their chaining hands together - they said for three months, as a last ditch effort to save their relationship. Well the good news is they made it the three months. The bad news is they broke up as soon as the chain came off. Alexander Kudlay, a 33-year-old car salesman, and 29-year-old beautician Viktoria Pustovitova shocked the world when they filmed themselves getting chained together with an actual chain. The chain was welded shut under the supervision of a representative of the country's national register of records, who also added a seal to the chain to make sure they don't cheat. Although lasting 123 days with their hands chained together is impressive and probably worthy of the record books, the lack of privacy ultimately took a toll on the couple and they announced their break-up as soon as the chain came off their wrist. Apparently, instead of saving their relationship, the constant proximity to each other ultimately killed it. (Oddity Central)
