And That Is Worse: Engaged And Getting Married Or Attending Jail?

Colorado guy Given Sentence By Judge: Get Married, Or check-out Jail

More than a couple of males have already been recognized to jokingly phone their unique wives “the ol’ ball and cycle,” or perhaps mocked some by their particular bachelor celebration guests for enjoying their “last day of freedom.”

Regarding a Texas guy though, it was the contrary: marriage was actually a get-out-of-jail-free card.

That is there a dating app for nerds where circumstances got unusual. The assess, Randall Lee Rogers, supplied Bundy a selection that appears straight out of a sitcom: He might go to jail for 15 days, which probably would have cost Bundy their job. Or, the guy could take 2 years of probation, with two significant circumstances: as an element of their probation, he’d need certainly to copy away Bible passages every day, and more importantly, get married within 30 days.

Bundy chose to get married his 19-year-old girlfriend, Elizabeth Jaynes, in spite of the possible unconstitutionality from the phrase. 

The bride’s parent informed CNN he was “really angry,” and is getting his options to attempt to obtain the sentence overturned. Bundy’s now-wife, Jaynes, told local station KLTV that she did not feel dissapointed about the particular choice to have hitched, but that “It really felt like we weren’t going to be in a position to possess marriage we wished.”

They’d a hastily organized matrimony during the courthouse, meaning Bundy remained from jail, and posted the picture below to myspace.

Congratulations (?) on the newlyweds.
