Well, this is just an odd mish-mash… My friend, L, shared the following article from the Mirror with me:
Wedding cheat Karen was jailed for four months this summer after she was convicted of bigamy.
Her husbands could not contact each other before the trial was over due to the legal process – but when they met for a pint afterwards they noticed striking similarities in each of their experiences with Karen.
[One husband] said. “She would tell me lots of little lies about where she was and what she’d been doing.”
“Karen was always smiling and made it fun to be around her. She worked and was financially independent and said she owned her home, which impressed me, though I later found it wasn’t true.” [Emphasis mine.]
However, though Karen was separated from Peter she had never formally divorced him – and so they were still legally married.
“She always gave me the impression she had a lot of secrets and hidden depths but she just had this way about her that made me melt.”
He says: “After I left Karen begged me to go back, she said it was a mistake and she hadn’t realised. She told me that she lived for me and that she loved me but I couldn’t go back to her.
Jailing Karen for four months at Cardiff Crown Court in June, Mr Recorder IWL Jones told her: “It is rare for a case like this to come before the court, especially one involving a woman. Bigamy is clearly a serious offence that strikes at the heart of the marriage system.”
“You have a good job, at managerial level – you are not a fool, you are an intelligent woman. You knew full well, I am entirely satisfied, that you were still married to Peter Sherratt. This is not a case of mere negligence, or not checking.”
“I have no doubt at all that you are a deceitful and dishonest woman and that Mr Thomas is the victim.”
Now Peter and Chris meet regularly for a beer and a game of pool and a chat about their marriage nightmare, and are looking forward to moving on with their lives.
On an entirely different note, I was perusing the Facebook group that serves my local community, and someone pasted the following links:
The articles created quite a lively discussion, and it seems Greenbelt may have a new endeavor in the offing! I’ll be the first customer, and I might fill out an employment application. 🙂
Yet one more ramble. If you want to find out if you are an Empath, you might try this test.
