CATCH AND RELEASE

Johnny Depp is engaged for the 5th time according to the February 4, 2014 edition of US Weekly. Depp has said “Marriage is from soul to soul” and to date has married only once and then to Lori Allison, a makeup artist, in 1983. US Weekly does not go into detail about the reasons only one marriage resulted from Depp’s engagements. If you or your fiancé decide to call things off, are you subject to a lawsuit for breach of promise? Not in Louisiana where it is against public policy to threaten litigation to procure a marriage.
