Make Up as Fraud?

Make Up as Fraud?  The Myriad Reasons People Get Divorced.

Many of us had raised eyebrows a few weeks ago when published an article recounting the details of a man’s choice to sue his wife for fraud due solely to the fact that she looked so very different with and without make-up.  In light of the fact that most wedding vows include the phrase “For Better or for Worse,” this was, understandably, a little baffling.

But perhaps more common is a different sort of deception:  you marry someone who seems to have a high moral character who then cheats on you with your friends.  You believe your spouse has dealt with the challenges of addiction only to learn years into the marriage that the problem remained, albeit hidden, all along.  Dealing with the emotional fallout from feeling defrauded in a marriage can be extremely difficult, and without a strong support network of friends, family, and even therapeutic options, recovery from such fallout can be a very long road indeed.  But when that fallout is so deep that divorce is looming, don’t be surprised if your Denver area divorce attorney gives you a wake-up call on whether or not, in our No Fault state, the words “I was defrauded by how much better she looked in make-up!” should come out of your mouth at the Initial Status Conference.
