She stabs you, you marry her... all very English

YOu have to give it to the Brits really. … -down.html

Just a little prick your honor.

Here’s the American version.

[quote]From the life-is-stranger-than-fiction file comes a new documentary about the strange marriage of Burt and Linda Pugach, whose 33-year union proves love is sometimes so blind that it can overcome even extreme violence.

Burt Pugach, now 80, and Linda Riss, a Bronx, N.Y., beauty who was 10 years his junior, dated for two years in the late ‘50s. The problem was that Pugach was already married. When he refused Riss’s pleas to get divorced, she broke off their relationship and announced her engagement to another man in the summer of 1959.

Burt took their breakup hard. In a fit of insane jealousy, he recruited another man to throw acid in Linda’s face when she answered the door to accept what she thought was an engagement present. The attack, which left Linda blind and disfigured, is still making headlines near a half century later.

“Linda, this man did something terrible to you. He had you disfigured,” TODAY host Matt Lauer said during a live interview with Burt and Linda on Thursday. “Yet when he got out of jail, you decided to get back together and eventually married him. People want to know: How could you have done that?” . . . . [/quote]
