If there were a law which required that when a couple divorced they had to return either the gift or its cash equivalent to all who provided gifts one of two things would happen:
1- People would stay married because they wouldn’t want to pay out all that money for gifts or
2- People would insist that their wedding guests bring no gifts.
Either way, the contractual fraud perpetrated by the bride and divorcing groom in connection with gifts given to them based on the premise that they actually loved each other and would remain married till the death of one of them would be eliminated.
America needs this law. Pay attention, politicians. Lot’s of us are tired of financing failed marriages based on everything but true and authentic love and commitment.
