Faces of the day

A Georgia man has been ordered to pay his former fiance $50,000 for ‘breach of promise’ and fraud after he left her for another woman.
Melissa Cooper successfully sued her former lover Christopher Kelley after she gave up her job and moved in with him only to be thrown out when she discovered his relationship with another woman.
Ms Cooper contended in her lawsuit that she quit her job to become a housewife for her former beau, their child and another child he had from a former relationship. She made that sacrifice under the premise she would be his wife.
The scorned would-be spouse then sued the cheating Mr Cooper for fraud and breach of promise to marry.
In the state’s Appeals Court last month, Mr Kelley unsuccessfully tried to use a legal techincality to argue that the promise to marry was made in a relationship similar to prostitution, according to CNS.
The state court of appeals ruled that the relationship did not involve the exchange of money for cohabitation and sexual favors, making the defense inapplicable. – Daily Mail
