    Sure, you could do that. But as there isn't a speck of evidence pointing to that promise being made it would get tossed out.

    And what proof is there that he promised to take care of her financially for the rest of her life?

    I think if you want to go down this road you should at least opt for an example where some prior relations have first been established. You and me talking politics over the interwebs ≠a woman leaving her job and state for a man, moving into a home with him and receiving a ring in the process. Her claims are consistent with those facts. Now it's your turn: why don't you tell me what facts surround your claim that I owe you money?

    Hardly. You're trying to find Kevin Bacon with all these degrees of separation between "she quit her job" and "meal ticket went bye-bye".

    By the way, in court I'll tell them that you bent over for me, thus establishing prior relations.

    There's so much to tie the facts together that Kevin Bacon is in their house right now and he's drinking all their beer.

    You can definitely play hopscotch with those "claims and conjecture" I spoke of earlier. She's a gold-digger, so obviously she thought she was getting a free ride from the recovered idiot who found a real woman. Her quitting her job sure does support the idea that she believed that she was becoming a kept woman. She had successfully trapped him (somewhat) with a ring-shaped shackle.

    He may very well have promised her everything. However, you'll never prove it - neither will I, nor she. This case existed because she wanted a pot of gold at the end of her manipulation rainbow. She probably gave a convincing sob story, and played everyone for suckers.

    Fortunately, civil law doesn't work on the principle that it's okay to defraud someone if it can be shown that she's an unpleasant person. There's a term for that, and it tends to be frowned on.

    Don't get the wrong idea, though: no matter how many thousands of times you give them, your "God, I hate women so much" spiels are always entertaining.

    I don't know what her exact claims are based on, or how the figure mentioned was reached, but the verdict seems reasonable enough.
    An agreement was made that she quit her job to be a homemaker, while he brought home the bacon.
    Any pater bonus familias should be able to see that a financial loss was incurred when that agreement was broken, and that some sort of compensation therefore is warranted.
    What kind of legal framework you want to dress it up in is less important than justice being served.
    Ok, that does it! I waste Professor Plum with the lead pipe.
    Oh yeah? Well say hello to my little friend, Colonel Mustard! Candlestick to the face!

    So the lesson in all of this is to keep your woman with a job.

    Just kidding, everyone involved in this court case looks to be an idiot for whatever reason.
