Ball ‘n’ Chain! Judge Orders a Man to Marry or Face Jail

Constantly hear, “He needs to make a decent woman out of you!”? This story is for you.

My family is really happy that I am engaged and with child. The latter came first, but they don’t care. As traditional as they are, they’ve gotten with the times. We’re in American, dammit! The land of the free – and to have a baby out of wedlock if your heart so desires!

If you’re scenario is different and you constantly hear, “”He needs to make a decent woman out of you!”” or “Why can’t he pop the question so you aren’t the shame of the family?!” this story is for, well, your family.

PLUS: He Said I Wasn’t Marriage Material

Judge Randall Rogers in Texas ordered a man to marry his ex-girlfriend – or face jail time! Josten Bundy, 21, pled guilty to assault after he beat up his ex-girlfriend’s current boyfriend for trash-talking her and being disrespectful. So he became her hero (baby!) and punched him right in the jaw.

At the sentencing hearing in Texas, Judge Rogers realized that this was the perfect opportunity to reunite the former lovebirds. He asked Bundy if she was worth the trouble he got himself into. Bundy said she was, and the judge ordered him to marry her within 30 days or he would go to jail for 15 days. It was either a jail sentence or a lifelong marriage, which can feel like a jail sentence to some men. What to do?!

Bundy made the choice that your familia would expect – marriage! The former exes are now husband and wife. She is his ball ‘n’ chain – literally. Talk about pressure.
