Rabbi Shammai taught that the only grounds for divorce was adultery. Rabbi Hillel taught that you could divorce your wife for any reason—even something as trivial as burning your toast at breakfast. Now, Rabbi Akiba went even further than that. He taught that a man could divorce his wife if he found a woman who was prettier than she was. So if you found a woman who was hotter than your wife, Rabbi Akiba said it was okay to divorce your wife and marry that woman.
