I was totally speechless after reading this story about Fire Captain Thomas Araguz, who was killed 2 weeks ago on July 3 at a structure fire in Wharton, Texas. Thankfully – there is a video to explain the details so I don't have to – but you won't believe this story. Every time I think Hollywood goes overboard in making up a story for Law and Order or CSI, I see a story like this.
The law on the subject is actually pretty straightforward. Fraud is grounds for the annullment of a marriage. Violation of law or public policy is as well (although some may argue the law in Texas is discriminatory). In either event – whether on the grounds of a same sex marriage or fraud – an annulled marriage is void from the beginning…. as if it never happened. That means his ex-wife.. er… first mate – is out.
Wow. I am so glad I got the url www.youcantmakethisstuffup.net.
