If she and her husband took the usual vows --- which promised fidelity and love then her husband broke those vows when he began cheating on her. Adultery is cause for a divorce in the Bible -- and in the Catholic Church --- just that the Church doesn't allow remarriage even after adultery -- but definitely adultery breaks the marriage vows.
Excellent point. I think you're right.
Her lawyers need to act on this immediately.
Has anyone ever offered to just pay Michael Schiavo a big fat chunk of change to divorce Terri?
It would have to be more than what his share of potential book sales/speaking engagements would be after he kills her.
Would something like three million dollars do it?
It is my understanding that Judge Greer appointed Terri's 'hubby' as her guardian ad litum, and as such Terri has absolutely no standing before a court except as represented by the one whom the Judge appointed. It is but one more reason why I and my extended family have removed Floriduh from ANY travel plans, it's just too dangerous to even be in that liberal sty.
Not at all. While it's not common, it's certainly not uncommon for a person to not want a divorce even after discovery of a spouse's infidelity.
Granted, I would ditch a woman who cheated on me, and most of the women in my life, I don't think, would want to hang around if I cheated on them.
But it happens.
The thing is that Terri does not really exist in the eyes of the people of FL and their laws. Terri is a "ward" of the court, and George W. Greer, reelected on Aug. 31 with 65 percent of Pasco-Pinellas voters, has decreed twice already that she must be starved and dehydrated if her "husband" so mandates. So really is a non-entity in the legal sense in liberal FL. Many Floridians really want this poor soul DEAD NOW.
Good point, c!
I have never understood why they can not win this case in court. No idea. The man was having an affair during his malpractice hearing! Terri never renounced her Catholic faith, regardless of the fact she had not attended regularly. She obviously would not have wished to stay married to someone who broke their marriage vows! Her religous beliefs speak for her.
Yes, Terri had a friend who said that Terri DID discuss divorce, with her. If a casual conversation could be enough to kill her, one would think that a casual converstion in combination with her husband's infidelity, and her inability to participate in a physical marital relationship would all combine to sway a court to give her a divorce, and to transfer guardianship to Terri's family.
Terri's brother had testified that Terri and Mike were in an argument the night before she was found not breathing on the floor of their apartment.
Husbands don't always have their wife's best interest at heart. If they could, Lacy Peterson and Lori Hacking would testify to that fact!
