Beauty in the eye of the builder

http://newsimg.bbc.co.uk/media/images/39246000/jpg/_39246327_facebody203.jpg

A woman who is worried her husband might leave her if she loses her looks has insured her face for £100,000.
Nicole Jones, of Bristol, is paying £200 a year for the policy, which will pay out if she is no longer deemed to be attractive.

She took the policy out as a birthday present for her husband Simon, who had always joked that he would leave her if she let herself go as she got older.

In order to claim on the policy Mrs Jones will have to be declared unattractive by a panel of 10 builders - a test she said her husband appreciated, being a builder himself.

Mrs Jones, 26, said: "When I met him I knew he was the sort of person who likes good looking ladies, but I've had a baby now and my figure isn't what it was before.

"He hated it when I was pregnant and my figure was changing and it was out of our control."

She said if the policy did pay out she would be able to use the money to hire a personal trainer or go to a health farm in a bid to get her looks back and lose weight, although she added she probably would not consider having plastic surgery.

But Mrs Jones said despite the lure of the six-figure sum, she would not be tempted to lose her looks just so she could claim on the policy.

She said: "The whole point of it is that I don't want to claim, so there is no point in letting myself go. My marriage is worth a lot more than that."

She added that she had never thought of herself as being particularly stunning, and was anxious to hold on to what she had.

Insuring your looks could be a good joke if you can afford paying the premium. Somehow, this does not sound like a joke.

"My marriage is worth a lot more than that". Mhm, a lot more of what, I wonder?

uh..she is not even attractive, she is ok.

And that guy...he's gotta go! I bet he is a biggins.

yeah, keith, i was a bit harsh there. you're right, she's at least ok. i don't think he's biggins though. i think he could be satan.

I think I posted mine while u were posting...so yeah, I mean, she is nothing special! But if she is insuring her looks, she is asking for all the comments in the world!

Why do some women do things like that for men? Boob jobs, diets etc.,

I met this guy and his girlfriend (they were both very hot) and she was eating and he said to her "you have had enough" and she said, "no, I want some more" and he said, "NO, you are DONE!" I had just met them and I was like... OHHHHHH KAAAAY. That woman who insured her looks just does nothing to help women become comfortable with themselves.

:wavey: Didn't J-Lo insure her butt...and that Michael River Dancer insured his legs? ....the whole thing just goes to show how full of ourselves we have become....I mean....Come On!!!!!

I'm going to insure my pet-rock and have it judged by a panel of rotting fish!! :eek:

no kidding! listen, if you're going to insure your looks, you better damn well make sure you're fine as hell. otherwise you get people like me and you saying things like, "sweet jeezus!" lol.

women who get boob jobs etc. for their men are stupid, insipid characters who feel they need the approval of a man to find their worth. it's sad, really.

speaking of women who do these things. i know a woman who had her butt padded because her man likes women with a little bit more tush than she had. guess what? he left her for her friend who by the way has an even flatter ass than she had to begin with!! go figure! :confused:

A person very, very close to me is going to get married to a man like that. I don't think she is stupid (I know for a fact that she was not raised to believe she is nothing) but I think she is so in love with this guy and he happens to have such, how should I say that-womanizing ways, and I think for her, she wants to keep this guy for whatever reason! Sweet Jezuz, her fiance wants a mother, not a wife, she is constantly cooking and cleaning for his lazy ass while he goes to titty bars and smokes pot all day. I don't think he demeans her in words, but in his actions (for right now at least) Hm...just thinking about it upsets me I guess. Sorry, had to vent I guess. I just think that although ultimately, it's her life, I think she wouldn't have done some of the things she does if she didn't fall in love with a guy that is such a jerk-He does have some nice things about him, but he is still a jerk.

Sorry bud...being an Aussie...I think I know who you mean....but doesn't she just sit behind a desk? LOL....I wouldn't insure her...she prolly sits back there in her fish-nets and whip-clip :eek:

Haha, yeah...but I think that they gave her a clear desk so people can look at her million dollar walking sticks!

yeah well falling in love is a crazy thing, keith. sometimes it's the best thing that ever happened to you...and sometimes it's not. i think in your friend's case...it's not. :sad:

Actually, its my sister. :sad: It't kinda weird- the guy she dated before him, she made him do everything for her. She was IN CONTROL, but I guess she now enjoys being subserviant.

:wavey: At the end of the day....over 30% of marriages will end in divorce....the guy mentioned origonally appears a prick and most proberbly is...I saw the news here too. Marriage is about respect and "clicking" with another soul.

We have all seen a pretty apply wrinkle and rot at some stage...but we still go and buy more IMO...we don't move to figs because we dislike apples at that time. :wavey:

I know they are going to get a divorce, I think that statistic is probably higher than 30%. My sis never took any bullshit (she has 3 older brothers and she knows!) I mean, they are having a $30,000 wedding, so for her, that makes her happy knowing its going to be a big event, but once that night is over, I think things will change.

Sad to hear that mate...you never know...my Sis (and best friend) and her hubby had a fight before they got married...I gave him a warning.....that was 2 years ago...they have never been happier mate. Any relationship goes though a rocky period while they both adjust to commitment.....just be there for her :-)

Yeah, of course I'm there. We were very close unti lI moved away. She is still in NJ, I'm here in Wisconsin, but I tell her next time I come, we are geting piss drunk and she can tell me all the things she wants about him. She was like, "OOOOH, I have much to tell" I'm not going to tell her what to do, that isn't my job, but when the pieces fall, I'm there to pick her up. I told her she always has a house in Wisconsin to stay at if she ever wanted to leave Lodi, NJ - which I dont think she will.

Bud it's obviously a point for you....won't take it any further. Glad you are there for her though :wavey:

I'd do the same for my sister except I'd have a pack of rabbid dogs waiting outside of her husband's place of employment. LOL

Well, actually, it's not a point for me. I was just talking about how women do things just to please men and used her as an example. I'm not a woman and I don't want one to please me, so it isn't a point for me. It is her life and I don't get involved in things that she does not talk to me about. She is my sister and I love her. I am not trying to change her mind.

I know that bud....I am the same with my sister....I wasn't implying you had a psychological disorder....just that you have a concern there. At the end of the day...you can do nothing except pick up the pieces should things break
