Note To The Ladies: Google That Guy Before You Say ‘I Do’

I don’t consider myself old, but I’m not exactly young anymore, either. Back in the day when I was single and dating there really was no easy way of finding out if a potential boyfriend or husband had a suspicious past. I moved around a lot, too, so I couldn’t rely on word of mouth. I just had to trust my instincts.

Thankfully, I never met someone like Brett Kimberlin, aka the Speedway Bomber. He’s a real piece of work, that one. I didn’t hear about him until a couple of years ago, but a simple google search reveals that he’s a convicted felon. So why would anyone marry him? I don’t know, maybe he met his wife before everyone had a laptop and a smart phone.  I’m sure she is now wishing she knew what she was getting into before she took the leap.

John Hoge reports today that the reason Tetyana Kimberlin was taken into custody at the end of yesterday’s court hearing in Maryland is that Brett Kimberlin tried to have his estranged wife involuntarily committed for 72-hour psychiatric evaluation.

Thankfully, Judge Patricia Mitchell denied this and Tetyana was released in a matter of minutes. Aaron Walker has more background.

If you have not read Tetyana Kimberlin’s petition for a peace order against her estranged husband, please do so now. (Read More)

If you are a single woman or girl reading this, you have an internet connection. Use it to find out if the man of your dreams could become the man of your nightmares. You certainly don’t want to end up like Brett Kimberlin’s wife, who he tried to commit after violating her. Being abused and then committed by a convicted felon is definitely not the recipe for a happy life.

Update: It gets even worse for Kimberlin’s wife.
