Death of a marriage first for regional paper.



Stavanger Aftenblad made what was quite possibly Norwegian newspaper history last weekend, when they published Anita and Tom Tajet’s divorce.

“The couple contacted us themselves and we had an internal editorial meeting about it, discussing how we thought it would be perceived,” Tarald Aano, one of Aftenbladet’s editors tells The Foreigner.

He goes on to say they talked to the couple as well, and it seemed to be a natural extension of what already exists today. The paper also doesn’t see it as its job to censure potentially reasonable requests, and doesn’t regard it as a taboo.

“It’s public information, after all. We can also see that an increasing number of people are using the social media for these types of announcements.”

However, Aano assures the public that Aftenbladet won’t start looking at the public registers.

“How popular do think this new service will be?”

“I don’t think we’ll experience a stream of requests,” he says.
