Marcelo de Azevedo Fernandes, a man from Rio De Janeiro, is now being seued $6,500 by what would have been his “ex-wife.”
However he was never married… Before going through with the marriage Fernandes got cold feet and called off his wedding with Cristiane Costa de Andrade.
Take this woman to be my lawfully wedded wife? Nah.
The couple would have been married September of ’07, but Fernandes called off the wedding. Now years later he is being ordered by court to pay thousands to help his future ex-wife deal with “moral and material” damages.
Rio de Janeirostate Judge Benedicto Abicair said, “Andrade’s suffering, anguish and humiliation cannot be ignored.”
The large amount of moneys is to cover wedding cost and visits to a psychologist.
No divorce needed but still having to pay!
In a similar situation in 2005 another man who had canceled his wedding 75 days ahead of time had to give up $2,000 dollars to his unofficial “bride.”
Man. Weddings come with a cancellation fee after all.
