Legal Loopholes

Here are a few curious legal facts about Harmony that we'd learned in the past few days:

1. If you have your wife declared dead, but she later turns up alive, your marriage is still annulled. The actual fact of her being alive doesn't matter. Go ahead and get hitched again.

2. If you sign a piece of paper saying that you'll never leave your wife, it's valid in a court of law. More valid that your actual wedding vows. Who knew?

BTW, I finally found a picture of Theresa in her dress, but it doesn't show the whole thing -- and that bell-shaped skirt is the best part. If you know of a good "Passions" screen cap site, let me know.

Another legal loophole:

During a trial, it is perfectly all right for a crazed woman to stand up and yell things about the person on trial being guilty. Not only can these things go into the court transcript, influence the jury, and not be grounds for a mistrial. It also does not prevent the person from being called as a witness later in the trial.

Good point. If masked Mexican wrestlers had suddenly appeared in that courtroom and pinned Eve to the ground, I wouldn't have been surprised.

I don't mind that "Passions" does scenes like that courtroom thing, but I do mind that they don't go further into total camp. What's the point of being just a little ridiculous? Go all the way and have fun with it.
