'Vette,

THANKS!

Glad to see a FEMALE avoided tailing into the "you GO gurl" parade that typically follows such matters.

You're right. There IS a value to her having a spouse that can't be casually discarded simply by virtue of prenup.

And I've read enough of the divorce documents to see how/why the prenup might be broken: Jonathan was represented by an attorney that had been referred to him by TERRI's counsel.

That's got conflict-of-interest written ALLOVERIT to me.

Add to that dude still had baby's milk on his breadth, broke, jobless, had very modest education and probably feared being deported sans marriage, and I can see how a judge might conclude he had been taken advantage of, if not coerced.

And I think if you took all the same facts here and flipped the sexes, 'Ms. Plummer' - gay or straight - is gettin' PAID.


PS: Straight guys I know would slit your throat if you mentioned them in the same sentence with "gay porn". So how Terri could tolerate finding over a dozen tapes of such in the dude's car sounds very SUSPICIOUS to me. And I imagine a (California) divorce judge might feel the same.
