The Right Thing Stories

For the weekly newspaper ethics column I write for the New York Times Syndicate called "The Right Thing," I am always looking for stories of ethical challenges, dilemmas, and perplexing situations. If you have such a story or question based on an incident and would like it to be considered for the column, please email it to me at (Or you can post it here by clicking on "comments" or "post a comment" below.

Please make sure to include enough details about the story, the issue that you're wrestling with, and your name and the city and state or province where you are located. Include a way for me to contact you.

If you know of others who might have interesting stories, please forward this email on to them.

If you're local paper doesn't carry The Right Thing column and you'd like it to, you can send an email to the editor of the paper suggesting they contact the New York Times Syndicate. Contact information is available at (Or contact Sales Manager Ana Muñoz at or 212.499.3333 and tell her the name of your local newspaper that you believe should be carrying the column.)

Thanks in advance for your stories.

Should an individual be able to annul an annulment or a divorce? This is particularly germane to high net worth individuals. What if one party marries another under false pretenses to "get money," and induces the person to marry without a prenup. Once the marriage occurs, the wrongdoer then treats the monied spouse cruelly, or in some way forces the monied spouse to ask for a divorce or an annulment. The monied spouse does seek the annulment and is granted the annulment but right after the equitable distribution (within 30 days) learns of the scam. Should that person be allowed to annul the annulment or divorce?
