Plastic surgery can bring out the worst in people, causing them to do some pretty strange things – like kidnap their wives. I suppose desperate times bring desperate measures, and if you are an au naturale kind of guy, the thought of your wife getting breast augmentation can drive you to fits of madness.
At least that seems to be the case for James McCarthy. The London resident was just sentenced to 20 months in jail for kidnapping his wife, Kerry, in an attempt to preserve her natural breasts. I guess the thought of squeezing a couple of silicone implants for the rest of his life was just too much for him to handle.
McCarthy’s 27-year-old wife was dead set on getting breast augmentation. When she discussed it with her husband, he voiced his vehement opposition, telling her he liked her the way she was. Apparently, he wasn’t very persuasive. Kerry booked the surgery anyway.
When she arrived at the hospital to undergo breast augmentation, Kerry had a black eye, apparently inflicted in a lover’s quarrel. While she was preparing for surgery, her husband stormed into the hospital to beg her to reconsider. When she refused, he went ballistic, threatening to kill her (he claimed he had a knife). McCarthy grabbed his wife’s clothes around her neck and tried to drag her out of the hospital, kicking and screaming. She eventually escaped his grasp and ran into a nearby office, collapsing on the floor.
At his sentencing, the judge commented, “You are, in plain English, a bully.”
Currently, the couple is separated. However, McCarthy got his wish. Kerry hasn’t undergone breast augmentation…at least, not yet.
While I personally sympathize with McCarthy’s desire to have an implant-free wife, I can’t exactly get behind his methods of persuasion. The man is clearly a nut job. And his reward for his efforts – the knowledge that pretty soon some guy, who is probably a bit more mentally stable, will be fondling his wife’s natural breasts while silently thanking him for preventing her from doing the deed. Score one for irony.
I think the moral of this story is pretty obvious: make sure you and your husband are on the same page before you decide to undergo breast augmentation. Or at the very least, make sure he undergoes a psychiatric evaluation before you openly defy his desire for you to keep your natural breasts.
If you are sure that your psychotic husband will not threaten your life and kidnap you to prevent you from getting the breast implants you so desperately desire, then contact an experienced plastic surgeon to schedule your initial consultation. However, if your husband has a bit of a rage issue, you might want to think about getting a restraining order first.
