In deceit proposal: Feds say man wed stranger to stay in US

Prosecutors say a couple was panhandling along a North Carolina road when a foreigner pulled over with a proposal for the woman: Marry him so he could stay in the country, and they'd receive $12,000 along with payments for a house and car.

Citing court records, The News & Observer reports that 31-year-old Melissa Anne Godshall accepted the offer from 44-year-old Levan Lomtatidze, a [CITIZEN] of the country of Georgia. Her boyfriend, 46-year-old Robert Kennerly, served as a witness during the marriage ceremony.

oh. The legal term of art (in North Carolina, USA) is "marriage fraud."

Which invites quite a few paradoxical ahh propositions.

Diversity is the key to economic and political evolution.
