Cuba’s “New Woman” at work–(La Candela!)


The term “Come-Mierda,” hardly does justice to Quebec’s Michel Beaudry (pictured above.) But hey–he was a Canadian tourist to Cuba! “My reservoir of sympathy for such people has shrunken to a greenish hog-wallow dotted with kerosene cans and old shoes.” (I stole that from S.J. Perelman.)

‘She lied all along’: Quebec man claims Cuban marriage a nightmare

MONTREAL- A Quebec man says he’s out $90,000 after falling in love with a Cuban woman, marrying her, and moving her to Canada.

He also claims that when she arrived, she was pregnant with another man’s baby and left him after six days.

Michel Beaudry told QMI Agency that he wants to share his story to help other Canadians avoid making the same mistake.

The 62-year-old met a 25-year-old woman while on an all-inclusive Cuban vacation in March 2013.

“At first,” said Beaudry, “I thought it was impossible that she would want to be with me.”

The relationship blossomed, bolstered by Beaudry making about 10 trips to Cuba to visit. They married in September 2013.

In June 2014, his wife was given permission by the Canadian government to move to Canada.

From the first day, she explained to Beaudry that she didn’t want to lead a normal married life with him.

“She said she loved me like a father figure. I slept on the sofa while she slept in my room.”

Beaudry says his wife also announced she was pregnant. He had a vasectomy, and knew he could be responsible for a child that wasn’t his.

Six days after her arrival, she asked for $50,000 to buy a home for her relatives in Cuba. When Beaudry refused, she packed her bags and left.

“She lied all along,” said Beaudry. “She only wanted money.”

Reynaldo Marquez, Beaudry’s lawyer, told QMI that they are seeking an annulment of the marriage. “I want her to leave the country,” Beaudry said.

And I stole this from the Beatles:

She’s a big teaser, she took me half the way there
She’s a big teaser, she took me half the way there now
She was a day tripper, a one way ticket yeah
It took me so long to find out, and I found out


And I stole this from Tom Petty:

I was talking with a friend of mine, said a woman had hurt his pride
Told him that she loved him so and turned around and let him go
Then he said, “You better watch your step,
Or your gonna get hurt yourself
Someone’s gonna tell you lies, cut you down to size”
Don’t do me like that
Don’t do me like that
I just might need you honey
Don’t do me like that

  1. Two other songs also apply to this sexagenarian: “The Fool on the Hill” by the Beatles and “El Bobo de la Yuca”:
    El bobo de la yuca se quiere casar
    invita a todo el mundo pa’la catedral
    Va a pasar su Luna de miel
    comiendo trapo, comiendo papel.
