Alsace. The notary discovers that the wife is not divorced from a previous marriage


When this couple wanted to sell their house in Sundgau in Alsace, their lawyer noticed something abnormal on the birth certificate of the 28-year-old young woman. Instead of her husband’s name, another name appeared on the document.

The defendant was a police officer

She then understands that this is the man whose bride was supposed to be divorced. The birth certificate she had provided to this same notary for her second marriage, and which did not include the name of her ex-partner, was a forged version.

The woman was tried on Wednesday at the Mulhouse court, as the newspaper says Alsace. The fact that she provided a false document was even more indignant because the defendant was a police officer. But she is not the only one to have acted illegally for this union. The preparations for the wedding actually required a succession of arrangements, in particular with the mayor of the town, a friend of the groom.

She wanted to participate in “Four weddings for a honeymoon”

The couple had to organize everything in a hurry, especially because the TF1 reality show “Four weddings for a honeymoon” planned to film them. The project was ultimately unsuccessful, because many police officers would be present among the guests, whose faces could not be seen on television. But it still forced the couple to get married in a city other than where they live, and the mayor didn’t want the shoot.

The man who celebrated their union and who knew the couple well had fictitiously domiciled the future bride in his town.

The defendant was sentenced to four months in prison with a probationary suspension of five years and to a definitive ban from exercising in the public service.
