    Man Refrains From Marrying Woman, Owes Millions in Spousal Support

    In Ontario, Canada.

    “Lack of a shared residence is not determinative of the issue of cohabitation. There are many cases in which courts have found cohabitation where the parties stayed together only intermittently.”

    First, the "humorous" write-up, followed by the source article:

    Sometimes, you just can’t win — like when you’re ordered to pay hundreds of thousands of dollars a year in spousal support.

    And like when you’ve not been married to the recipient, lived with them, or shared any children.

    Just ask Michael Latner — he should know.

    As reported by the National Post, Michael dated List Climans for 14 years.

    When they began, he was a divorced dad of three and she was a separated mom of two. Throughout their near-decade-and-a-half courtship, they resided in separate homes.

    However, they’d stay over at one another’s places.

    And they vacationed together as Michael — a reported multi-millionaire in Toronto — showered her with gifts.

    One such nifty nugget: a 7.5-carat diamond ring.

    Beyond that, List got lobbed “thousands of dollars each month (and) a credit card.”

    He even paid off her mortgage.

    Not bad work if you can get it, and she did — so she quit her job.

    Even so, they never shared bank accounts or property, and they never had kids.

    As noted by The Daily Wire, Michael did in fact propose — multiple times.

    But his lover wasn’t lured, on account of the marriage contract he required her to sign.

    Eventually, the pair went their separate ways.

    However, List wanted something to remember him by — like a bunch of cash.

    She went to court to gain legal recognition as his wife, at which point she could receive spousal support.

    Michael argued the ambitious ex was his “travel companion and girlfriend, nothing more.”

    After eight days of argument, Superior Court Justice Sharon Shore ruled the duo had been wrapped up in wedded bliss — so Michael’d have to fork over $53,077 per month for…ever.

    Or, as the Post put it, “indefinitely.”

    On appeal, Mike was cut some slack: He’d only have to load List with lots of loot for a decade.

    That’s $53,077 x 12 x 10 = $6,369,240.

    Hey — that’s the same amount they spent here:

    Except Steve Austin got to be snatched from death and transformed into a superhuman, whereas Michael just gets to not date a woman and give her lots of money after he dated a woman and gave her lots of money.

    Potato, puh-tah-toe.

    The Appel Court pointed out, “Lack of a shared residence is not determinative of the issue of cohabitation. There are many cases in which courts have found cohabitation where the parties stayed together only intermittently.”

    Here’s more from the Wire:

    The higher court used Shore’s analysis and concluded she was correct that the couple was considered to have cohabitated even though they weren’t married, didn’t own a home together, and only stayed with each other for part of the year. The Appeal Court did determine that Shore erred when she determined that the couple met the threshold for indefinite spousal support, ruling that the couple didn’t start this “cohabitation” as early in the relationship as Shore ruled.

    Poor Mike — he probably feels listless. Which, of course, he is.

    But congratulations to Ms. Climans: For the next decade, she’ll get to be the Buy-onic Woman.

    Sleepovers can be dangerous in Canada ..............
    Oddly enough Woody Allen was ahead of his time with this and never allowed Mia to sleep over, it was always sex in hotel rooms.

    I hope my 'step-daughter' doesn't read this case, according to this judgement she could claim we're married.

    Why are MGTOW so obsessed over women and can't stop talking about them?

    Because our wealth and freedom, built on sacrifice and effort can easily be swindled from us without recourse or restitution, then redistributed to persons that would whither and die in the natural course of human events based on ethical and natural law.

    Our domain has been sacrificed for the artificially created need of the many that outweigh the need of the ever shrinking few.

    They walked in numbers and we not only heard their roar, we felt their bite and vicious feeding on all that we are, we've walked away mauled and scared only to return someday, but not as a friend, comforter, or provider, we're returned to our rightful place based on the sovereignty of the individual outweighs the mutual efforts that work to extract and destroy him.

    Men were the foundation of society, the corner stone and keystone, now we're the rug, the footstool, and harnessed through a nefarious justice systems doing business as usual, destroy the men, save the whore.

    They changed the law, the law ground us to dust, now they complain about choking on all the dust they created?

    Full circle is when the sword of natural justice turns around and stabs them the back, the way it did us through the daughters, granddaughters, and great great granddaughters of feminism.

    They've placed themselves in harms way via social collapse and meltdown of the gynocentric state.

    We're seeing the fruits of feminism spawn all around us like weeds in a garden.

    Sometimes living free comes after you're murdered and turn to dust, which to me, defines the definition of a MGTOW ghost, a soul milled to dust in the social factories of feminism that have ran unabated for generations.

    The law is a harpoon, the modern woman is a whaler that uses it to her advantage in any and all situations, it's her 1st response, her salvation and cure-all for everything that upsets her.

    We're just whale-oil waiting for a time and place to happen. Why wouldn't we talk about that? I'm just a source of whale oil to burn in some woman's lantern?
    We are lawfully exiled by the alterations and changes made to this social compact called government, its body politic now cancerous and destructive to its own ends.

    A man is on his own, always was, always will be.
