How much do you have to hate your wife to be willing to spend 10 years in prison over it?
This is a really fucked up aspect of Jewish marriage, and the whole marriage court process in Israel. My dad's girlfriend works for an advocacy organization of women who are denied a divorce (called "Agunot" or "shackled women"). It comes down to - you can't do it without the guy's consent. This guy must be truly fucked up in the head to be willing to sit in prison like that. Literally all he has to do is sign a piece of paper and he's out. Can you imagine the kind of willpower that takes?
By the way, this is probably not really a legal issue for the woman. She probably wants to remarry in proper Jewish fashion. A secular person could just get a civil marriage, although you can't do that in Israel yet. Gotta go somewhere like Cyprus, but it is then recognized as an official marriage in Israel.
I'll do ya 1 better. A guy in our county was held in jail for 14
years on a contempt charge for refusing to reveal what happened
to over 2 mil he had and his wife wanted in a divorce.
14 fucking years and never charged with a crime.
The only difference is your guy stood to lose 2 million dollars by talking. This guy has nothing to lose but the argument.
Someone should do what don Corleone did. Either his signature is on the paper or his brains.
lol beat me to it, that guy is my fucking hero. i wonder how much that 2mil has accrued into now, that is a complete FU to his cunt ex wife
A choice isn't made of one's own volition if one is bullied into making a particular choice by another. That's coercion.
Wow. Wonder if he "invested" it in something criminal like drugs or something and was afraid of divulging the information because of that? Still, a huge fuck you to the ex-wife.
Yeah, but I believe he has to have a reason to not give one or the rabbinical court can compel him somehow. It's complicated (of course. It's religion and law mixed together. How COULD it be simple???)
Religion sucks. Have fun in prison, moron.
i have been following this guys trial for a while, apparently he flat out said fuck you cunt you get nothing, he was in jail longer than they were married. he has that money in off shore accounts, and good for him, fuck that cunt
+ = Fixed!
This guy solved that same problem once!!
