MONTREAL- A Quebec man says he's out $90,000 after falling in love with
a Cuban woman, marrying her, and moving her to Canada.
He also claims that when she arrived, she was pregnant with another
man's baby and left him after six days.
Michel Beaudry told QMI Agency that he wants to share his story to help
other Canadians avoid making the same mistake.
The 62-year-old met a 25-year-old woman while on an all-inclusive Cuban
vacation in March 2013.
"At first," said Beaudry, "I thought it was impossible that she would
want to be with me."
The relationship blossomed, bolstered by Beaudry making about 10 trips
to Cuba to visit. They married in September 2013.
In June 2014, his wife was given permission by the Canadian government
to move to Canada.
From the first day, she explained to Beaudry that she didn't want to
lead a normal married life with him.
"She said she loved me like a father figure. I slept on the sofa while
she slept in my room."
Beaudry says his wife also announced she was pregnant. He had a
vasectomy, and knew he could be responsible for a child that wasn't his.
Six days after her arrival, she asked for $50,000 to buy a home for her
relatives in Cuba. When Beaudry refused, she packed her bags and left.
"She lied all along," said Beaudry. "She only wanted money."
Reynaldo Marquez, Beaudry's lawyer, told QMI that they are seeking an
annulment of the marriage. "I want her to leave the country," Beaudry said.
