A woman is irate with her husband for giving her a sexually transmitted disease and is suing him. A Manhattan woman has filed a $25 million lawsuit against her allegedly hooker-loving husband, charging he gave her sexually transmitted diseases that ruined her life. I just heard about this on the Today Show with Kathy Lee and Hoda.
According to the New York Post – In papers filed in state Supreme Court, Stephanie Lerner said she was infected with "several severe incurable strains of the human papilloma virus" as a result of the affairs conducted by her husband, Mark, a venture capitalist.
Stephanie, an author and former television producer, said her condition got so bad, she had to undergo several operations.
The Lerners were married in 1991, and she first learned her husband was unfaithful in 1996, when she contracted a sexually transmitted disease, trichomoniasis, the suit says. This is what gets me — she already knew he was a cheat and had already given her an STD, because of this fact, I would say she will not win the $25 million she is seeking.
My first thought was that I wouldn't sue him (I think we have become a 'sue' happy nation), but I most definitely would leave him. I would possibly enact some sort of revenge…not sure what though.
I mean if the man I am married cheats on me and brings home an std — I'm not going to be too happy about it. So in this vain, what would you do if your husband gave you an STD?
