Bolash v. Heid

In Bolash v. Heid, 733 S.W.2d 698, 699 (Tex. App.--San Antonio 1987, no writ), the defendant was employed in Nigeria and would on occasions spend time in this country. Id. According to plaintiff's testimony, she and the defendant agreed to be husband and wife one night when the defendant was visiting. Id. The defendant left San Antonio the following day, but according to the plaintiff's testimony, he returned to San Antonio several times during the next four years and stayed with plaintiff on each occasion. Id. She testified they traveled together on occasion to New York, Atlanta, Las Vegas and Europe. Id. The court determined that, although defendant testified he had returned to this country several times when he did not see plaintiff, and although the plaintiff admitted she did not know where defendant worked in Nigeria and did not know how to get in touch with him there, her testimony that they were together each time he came to this country was sufficient to support the finding they lived together as husband and wife to the extent possible under the circumstances. Id.
