This headline needs a contraction.

The way I read "can not" is that there is more than one possible outcome. I can not have something... or I can have it?

i believe the husband only wanted the value of the kidney, not the organ itself.

Though, from the way I understand it, he probably deserves to rip it from her body with a smile on his face.

How do you marry a kidney?
 
2009-02-27 12:14:50 PM  
You know what, why not?

It's not like he donated half of his liver, it's a kidney, she could live without it. Chop it out of her and shove it back into him and call it a day, let the mean spirited wench enjoy her dialysis.

She damn well knew she was going to be divorcing him when he gave her that kidney.

The guy was an asshole for even trying.

Give a gift, you no longer own it.

No, you can't have your kidney. Kidney: not yours.

Apparently he can't get his kids back either. So at least they're being consistent.

That is indeed the correct meaning of "can not." The headline should read "cannot" or, even better, "may not"

FTA:In a ruling Tuesday, matrimonial referee Jeffrey Grob said the kidney was a gift. It was donated in 2001, during happier times in the marriage.

Man that has got to be one shiatty divorce if a time when organs needed to be transplanted is referred to as "happier times".

An engagement ring is an implied contract for marriage. No marriage? dude gets ring back.

No gratitude? Dude should get kidney back.

You do realize he wasn't serious, right? That he was just trying to AW his way into getting the absolutely shiatty circumstances of his divorce into the limelight?

Dude, his wife cheated on him soon after he gave a kidney to her. That's cold.

I wonder if you can put a kidney back in after all this time. Any doctors in the house that would know?

Which is why you never get engaged on a holiday like Christmas or Valentine's or her birthday, because then someone might rule that it was a gift, and she gets to keep it.

Actually, I didn't. Heard about the case before and thought he was a douche. Stranger things have happened.

If that was his goal, it worked.

I agree, the understood meaning is the same. There is only one outcome to cannot or can not, but can not just looks stupid.

The doctor's attorney, Dominic Barbara, said in a statement that he considers the ruling a victory for his client because the donation will be considered as a factor in the overall distribution of marital assets.

So, the wife now just has to pay for it.

Kidneys under the law have no material value. You cannot equate a value with a kidney, because then people start selling them, and killing hookers and hobos for them. So they can't take the kidney out, because that's state-approved assault (a doctor performing surgery on you against your will is assault, same as a hobo performing surgery on you against your will is assault), and they can't really make her pay him some amount of money, because then they are saying that's how much a kidney is worth (though it might make the judge more lenient towards him). So the guy gets screwed, but I think I prefer one guy getting screwed over after donating a kidney to his wife to setting any precedent that allows EITHER the state to approve assault on individuals who are not a danger to themselves or others, OR equating any material value to organs, which can lead to all kinds of black-market unpleasantness that originally led to the "you can't sell a kidney" laws.

No, it just means the court has to consider it. They said it was a gift, not a marital asset. From the lawyer's statement, it sounds like "a gift isn't as good as a marital asset she'd have to pay for, but it's better than pretending that he didn't sacrifice a portion of his life for her."

Either way, it gets down to the real nature of this dispute: he didn't want his farking kidney back, it was all just legal manoevering.

Really? She did? Seems to me she probably figured they would be together forever at the time, that was eight years ago.

Holy fark double standard!


Maybe after the transplant he became a dependent sniveling jerk. Maybe he let himself go or wasn't trying to be attractive to her. If he got fat and in anyway unattractive to her, it should be her right to cheat on him, right? Right?

If this situation were reversed in gender, you'd all be making excuses for why it was ok for the guy to be cheating and what an unsufferable biatch she was for asking for her kidney back.

Pxtl: Either way, it gets down to the real nature of this dispute: he didn't want his farking kidney back, it was all just legal manoevering.

Legal maneuvering? Perhaps. More likely, he simply wanted the court to offset the brazilion dollars he was going to be giving her as part of the settlement. He wasn't wanting it back--He simply wanted it viewed as something he put into the marriage, and to be justly compensated for it.
