    Not really, just have to act like a man is all. Having a penis doesn't automatically make you a man, it might mean nothing more than being another prick with legs.

    I'd say this fellow hasn't been much of a man and that has nothing to do with the legal system, it's all on him.

    Here's the thing, if Georgia doesn't have common law marriage then it has no right to force this man to pay $50k. Now to most people it would appear that this was a couple and that they were together.

    However the Georgia legislature recognized common law marriage in the past. With the consent of the people of Georgia they intentionally nullified CLM. The judge is trying to allow this woman to eat her cake and have it too. At the end of the day it sucks for the woman, but she has no right to the money and she should contact her representatives in the state, because that is the body that made it illegal to have the money.

    Common Law Marriage Georgia

    “No common-law marriage [in Georgia] shall be entered in this state on or after January 1, 1997. Otherwise valid common-law marriages entered into prior to January 1, 1997, shall not be affected by this Code section and shall continue to be recognized in this state.” - See more at: Common Law Marriage Georgia

    Course there are quite a few women with kids from other relationships, bet you know a few and chase after them rather hard, but having kids doesn't make them trash.

    Does sound like the man in the OP was being rather controlling and arrogant, wanted her isolated and dependent on him. Still wanted to chase other women and seems to think the grass is greener- or rather no need to marry them, just graze on through.

    Now that I am talking to you after reading the OP- you live in Georgia don't you????

    Yep, women are increasingly being accomodated by the legal system in unprecedented ways. If it was the other way around you better believe a man wouldn't be getting 50k.

    Nobody has mentioned the famous case of Lee Marvin. He lost big time.

    You can't make promises that change other peoples lives and the renege for free. He owes her this money.

    In 1971, Marvin was sued by Michelle Triola, his live-in girlfriend from 1965 to 1970, who legally changed her surname to "Marvin". ...snip...
    ...Although the couple never married, she sought financial compensation similar to that available to spouses under California's alimony and community property laws. ...

    ..
    In August 1981, the California Court of Appeal found there was no such contract, and thus nullified the award she had been made. Michelle Triola died of lung cancer on October 30, 2009.
    I hope she died a horrible painful death penniless and unloved because she was a gold digging whore and a parasite.

    In our legal system, a promise becomes an enforceable contract when one relies on it to their financial detriment.

    Are there any instances in which a contract could exist even though the parties did not complete the deal?

    If one party makes a statement or a promise that causes another party to rely on that statement in such a way that he or she is financially injured by that reliance, then a court will enforce the statement or promise as if it was a completed contract. The court does not need to find an agreement or consideration in order to enforce the promise like a contract.
