Don't exactly know what to think about this jilted bride getting awarded $150,000 because her fiancee left her, but I'm terrified at the precedent this sets.
So is this justice or bullshit? I'm torn, but my gut reaction is bullshit. I mean, yes it sucked that she left her high paying job, moved to another state and moved in with the toolbag she was going to marry, but that was her decision. She said yes. She decided that it was a good idea to trust that man.
How many other women (and to be completely fair, men) have been whalloped in such ways? At least three of my boys have been jammed up in similar ways by former girlfriends and fiancees, and they would have been laughed out of court had they sued for monetary and credit damages.
Does this mean they now have legal standing to persue action against these women?
In other thoughts, this is why a marriage license - issued and certified by the state governments - is so important. They are binding legal contracts backed up by the power of law. That's why divorces require lawyers. But up until that legally binding contract is signed...?
