    A. Wagers canonically invalid.

    B. Her previous marriage, contracted at the tender age of 34, lasted all of four years. Unless the previous husband bolted, has a volcanic temper, is pickling himself, chases skirts, runs con games, or a combination of the above, this is not a prudent move on the part of the fiance.

    The only reason I recognize most of them is that my duties require me to immerse myself in WeSmirch on a daily basis. 🙁

    Maybe it just didn’t add up; apparently they’d agreed to divide things beforehand in a pre-nup.
    Previous husband was a composer; maybe he was just too sharp for her.
