    Same here.

    I never said it was morally right for someone to do or that the law agreed with me. I just don't agree with the law.

    You don't think breach of contract should be a suable offense?

    So a guy that buys a woman an engagement ring, has a kid but wont marry the mother, but keeps her on as nanny & housekeeper while having other women on the side, and discourages her from having a career....is a "man?"

    The breach of contract to marry? Yeah, what?

    And this idea of common law marriage mentioned in the article is complete and utter bull****. When is that idea going to finish dieing out?

    I'm not on board with this case necessarily but in the example just given where the entire wedding has been planned and alot of money expended...then yes, I do believe they need to be compensated for that wasted $ if the other breaks the deal.

    That is a socially and legally recognized promise of intent.

    Actually, litigation isn't limited just to contract agreements. When I used "contract" I meant it in a highly informal sense, in this case meaning any agreement where expectations are understood of each other. In court, all you have to show for the most part is intent to follow through on an action. So, for example, if you send off an email, saying, "Hey Bob, I'll send you the check next Tuesday" a judge with likely consider this as clear intent that you meant to pay by that date, and not just any old time you felt flush with money. In this case, it would be extremely easy...excuse me, it was extremely easy... to determine that the husband-to-be had clear intent to marry this woman and that she had reasonable expectation to be taken care of. But as it turned out he was a complete and utter scumbag, and as is so often the case with utter scumbags it required the courts to make him do the right thing.
