Regency San Marino
August 5, 2010 by staff
Regency San Marino, Regency San Marino: D reading of the unknown was in the air as France Lynn wrote two words in the search box on Facebook: the name of the woman that she believed her husband was having an affair.
Click. And there it was a nightmare for any couple, cuckold or no. Photos of the wedding. At Walt Disney World, no less, with her husband, literally, dressed as Prince Charming. His new wife, a beautiful blonde, was a radiant beauty sleep, surrounded by lackeys.
“I was paralyzed with shock, to tell you the truth,” said French, an occupational therapist in Westlake, a suburb of Cleveland. “It was not like an album of 200 photos of existence. Your wedding.”
The husband said Thursday that her marriage to Lynn French was never valid. He said he knew before the marriage and the claim is made Facebook as an advertising ploy.
Affairs were once dark matter, illicit encounters whispered and often difficult to prove. But in the era of Facebook and Twitter and communications at lightning speed, the notion of privacy is becoming obsolete. From text messages to flirt incriminating e-mails, marital indiscretions are much easier to follow – especially if potentially damaging photo evidence can be found online.
“All these things are just a trail of cyber breadcrumbs are easily tracked by good divorce lawyers,” says Parry Aftab, an expert on Internet security and privacy laws.
France, 41, was not completely surprised by his discovery of Facebook, which took place in January 2009. That fall, had grown suspicious when her husband began to make frequent business trips, even putting on his newborn son of the couple came home from hospital. Once he found his passport at home when he was supposed to be in China for business.
In October, before leaving for another trip, her husband left a hotel website on the computer screen of the couple.
“So I really went there with a girlfriend, just to see for myself safe,” says France. “He was there with a girlfriend. I said, ‘Hey, I’m his wife. We have a baby’.”
She said that France was committed to the husband of France.
“Indeed, were registered for a wedding in Target,” France said.
A friend recommended to check the Facebook page of the woman, who was then opened to the public, France, he says, but has become private. There, France found evidence of a cleavage that she still can not wrap your head around. Overwhelmed with two young children, confronted her husband. She says he told her not to actually go through with the wedding.
It was not until he saw the photos of the wedding finally began divorce proceedings.
“People involved in this kind of behavior now have the option of trying to keep things private or make it a show and become your own reality show,” said attorney Andrew Zashin, an expert in child custody representing Lynn France. “In this case, apparently, the spouse may have crossed the line and married while he was still married.”
Aftab, a lawyer who runs the online protection site WiredSafety.org, said that the lesson to be learned from the case law of Frances is that no form of communication is sacred anymore.
“It’s like trying to catch a river in the hand,” he says. “It’s going to leak over time.”
But Aftab does not recommend online snooping. That can backfire in court if used improperly – for example when you enter the spouses of other Facebook pages without permission. If your spouse is not trustworthy, says, divorce and save yourself the trouble.
Lynn’s husband, John France, denies not remarried. Rather, it simply insists that he never married to Lynn in the first place.
“I do not think I was cheating,” France said in an interview broadcast Thursday on NBC’s “Today.” “If you have a marriage that is not right from the start, not right at the end.”
Lynn France said the French claim hearing about the second wedding in Facebook was “absurd” and said he knew long before. He said he was “losing the battle in court” for custody of her two children and was using the story of Facebook for attention.
His lawyer, Gary Williams, released a statement Tuesday saying that his client is asking a Family Court to declare that his marriage to Lynn was “void from the beginning.”
“While it seems that John and Lynda France were both in print, once upon a time, they were married, the fact of the matter is that their marriage was never legally correct,” wrote Williams, “and, therefore, actually does not exist. ”
Lynn and John were married in France in July 2005 at a wedding by the sea in the Amalfi Coast, having organized the event through Regency San Marino, coordinating weddings for couples wishing to marry in Italy. In the company’s Web site, Lynn is still the first radiant bride whose portrait appears in a veil of gauze, the bright blue sea behind it.
If the marriage was a fraud, the news was Lynn.
“If that were true, then he has lied to the IRS,” says Zashin. “He has lied to insurance companies. Banks.”
In June 2009, against the advice of his lawyers, Lynn France ended the divorce proceedings when her husband came home and persuaded her to reconcile.
“I just wanted to believe that good when he came to me and said,` We will reconcile, I love you, ‘”she says. “You have to give someone a second chance.”
But three months ago, says Lynn was cleaning the bathroom when her husband took the son of 2 years of age of the couple on his arms and said he would give him some milk. Minutes later, she heard the car running.
“He threw them without car seats, no nothing, and left,” he says.
She has not seen her children since then. John France had led to Tampa, Florida, where he currently lives with his new wife and, according to his lawyer, requested custody of their children.
Lynn France called 911, but as in most disputes over the custody of parents, little could be done. She is in contact with the Center for Missing & Exploited Children has a team of lawyers preparing for a legal battle. The authorities have told him not to attempt to recover the children by force.
For Lynn, the unique vision of their children now comes, ironically, the same Facebook page where he found photos of the fairy tale wedding.
Until the day you can see his children, Lynn France said that it follows the text of her husband, begging him to bring the children back to Ohio.
“The only way I could see my kids is on your Facebook page,” she says. “Stranger Than Fiction is to see this woman to live my life.”
John France denied that prevented the children, saying during an interview on Thursday offered to buy their plane tickets to come to Florida.
A message left Thursday by Lynn French lawyer was not immediately returned.
