The title of the short story “Divorced, Beheaded, Survived” is part of a rhyme, which is used to remember the fates of King Henry VIII’s six wives. The rhyme goes “Divorced, beheaded, died, divorced, beheaded, survived”.

In the movie Skeeter ask Aibileen help to write her book and she wanted to get her views on what Aibileen thought about the laws in the south.
