This story really got me. I'm still not sure how I feel about it.
Man proposes to Woman. Woman moves to Man's town, giving up a good paying job for a not so great one.
Man decides he does not want to marry Woman.
Woman gets $150,000.
On one hand, the man screwed her over. I guess. There is always two sides to the story. But the one that the court believed was that she got screwed and deserved monetary compensation for this.
Aren't things like compromise and giving up things for the one you love part of the risks you take for love? Men and women get screwed all the time, but only because they take risks to find what it is they are looking for. It doesn't always work out.
I'm afraid with more cases like this, people will stop taking the risks for fear of being sued. All because their feelings changed, or they learned something about this person that they realized they could not live with.
But, maybe people will be less apt to rush into things. Take their time getting to know each other before popping that big question.
On the other hand, there are those people who tend to use people. Women and men both use others for money, short-term affections, etc...and then move on. Will cases like this stop them??
This case really bothers me.
