Wife Leaves, Husband Panics, Law Enforcement Agency Makes Poor Choices.

According to Associated Press:

A man whose wife seemingly vanished near a suburban Chicago river only to be found days later with another man across the country said he noticed romantic text messages he didn't send on his wife's cell phone two days after they were married a little more than a year ago.

So, this guy knows his wife is carrying-on with another man. When she runs off, he calls the police because he thinks she has vanished mysteriously.

He goes on to lamely explain:
I gave her a chance because she promised me she would be 100 percent faithful. I completely trusted her. I would never have run away with another girl. I would have tried to work it out."

So, he thinks everyone should be like him.

But the outrage in the story is not that his wife left him for a dalliance (however temporary), the outrage is that:
Authorities are considering whether to file charges against Anu Solanki or make her pay for the cost of the search effort that included underwater divers and helicopters.

Now, abandoning your spouse is grounds for divorce, but I did not know it was grounds for prosecution.

Is it? I don't think so.

If she had abandoned minor children, there might be grounds for criminal charges, but it is likely that it would lead not to criminal charges, but loss of custody.

Law enforcement agencies are alleged to have spent a quarter-of-a-million dollars searching for her. Now they are suggesting that she pay that money? This has got to be one bunch of assholes in Des Plaines, Illinois!

Sure, the husband has grounds for divorce, but the government does not have grounds for punishing the woman. If this idiot of a husband can't figure out that his wife is cheating on him, after reading romantic text messages on her cell phone within days of their marriage, then the only person who should be punished is him!
