He'll Pay $5,000 for a Wife: Man Places Ad in Newspaper

Meet Charles Haeberle, a 39-year-old general manager and resident at the Lodge at Kennebunk in Maine. He's ready to get married, and prepared to give $5,000 to the mercenary woman prostitute who's ready to take him up on his offer. (Well, actually, he will pay in installments: $400 after the fourth successful date, $1,100 at the engagement, and $3,500 at the wedding). He doesn't go to bars, couldn't meet any women at church, and got no replies after he wrote a poem, put it in a bottle and threw it into the ocean. So, the logical next step, of course, was an ad in Craigslist. Good luck, Chuck! You're gonna need it. Click here to read about the world's last true romantic.

I agree -- I highly doubt he's 39. He's only paying 5k for a wife?? My engagement ring alone cost more than that! I'm kidding (well, not about my engagement ring, but the rest). :)

I feel sorry for him. No way he's 39 though.

"mercenary woman/ prostitute" that's rather judgmental.

Yeah, this is a great way to meet quality women. (I'd insert the rolling eye smiley but I don't know how.)

Poor guy! He's got to be lying about the age thing though! The decor looks like mom's touch, sans the neon sign. There are a lot of red flags here ladies. Hey, he should just try the the banana man dance :banana: J/K

Good question, j2e1n9. He lives at the Lodge, too. So the sign either says "Lodge at Kennebunk" or "I will pay you $5,000 to marry me." ;)

It looks like he has a neon sign in his front window there...why? I wonder what his age requirements are... I would imagine it is because he isnt that attractive, at least not to me.

I wonder why he can't find anyone? Is it a compatability issue? Is it that he's too picky? I'd love to know why, I mean just looking at him he's a decent looking guy, he has a stable job... man I'm really curious.
