A Georgia man has been ordered to pay his ex 50,000 for “breach of promise to marry” and I have to say he had it coming. As I learned more details of the case, I became more astounded at the unmitigated gall of this dude.
He cheated on her twice so she asked him to move out and filed a lawsuit because she had left her job to be a stay at home mother. She basically changed her entire life because he gave her a ring and had a child with him. Logical, yes? Well, things come undone and now the true character of this guy comes out. I mean he sunk so low as to try to call their relationship “prostitute and john” as a legal defense!
I suppose this particular case can serve as cautionary tale about dating, love, marriage and relationships. You have to know who you are with – like reaaaally know them. If you think about it, there are usually signs that lets us know about a person’s character. I wonder why kind of signs she missed?
This kind of thing is almost enough to scare you off from dating altogether. Alas, I am a romantic and I have hope that this kind of misadventures is rare and isolated. I can actually see why many of my guy friends are so hesitant to invest time, money, and energy into women until they get to know them better. It really is a risk we all take because who wants to end up in court with an expensive break up?
Would you ever take any of your exes to court?
