                                                  A woman who is worried her husband might leave her if she loses her looks has insured her face for 100,000.
Nicole Jones, of Bristol, is paying 200 a year for the policy, which will pay out if she is no longer deemed to be attractive.

She took the policy out as a birthday present for her husband Simon, who had always joked that he would leave her if she let herself go as she got older.

In order to claim on the policy Mrs Jones will have to be declared unattractive by a panel of 10 builders - a test she said her husband appreciated, being a builder himself.

Mrs Jones, 26, said: "When I met him I knew he was the sort of person who likes good looking ladies, but I've had a baby now and my figure isn't what it was before.

"He hated it when I was pregnant and my figure was changing and it was out of our control."

She said if the policy did pay out she would be able to use the money to hire a personal trainer or go to a health farm in a bid to get her looks back and lose weight, although she added she probably would not consider having plastic surgery.

But Mrs Jones said despite the lure of the six-figure sum, she would not be tempted to lose her looks just so she could claim on the policy.

She said: "The whole point of it is that I don't want to claim, so there is no point in letting myself go. My marriage is worth a lot more than that."

She added that she had never thought of herself as being particularly stunning, and was anxious to hold on to what she had.

                                                  OH PLEASE!!!!!!!  blink.gif  wacko.gif  That woman should have her head examined!!!!!!!!  Talk about self centered!!  If her husband leaves her because she becomes unatractive, he WASNT worth being with in the first place!!!  And, What kind of example is she setting for her child??? Not a very good one if you ask me!!!                                                  

I will forever believe that anythings possible, no matter how crazy or unexplainable.

                                                  i my question is who is the worst MR JONES ,,,he hated the way his wife looked when she was pregnant,,,a**hole.....that is what i think off him...

and is he some sort off stud,,his wife probably has to but herself another mirror to look in because bighead handsome boy has a photo attacheted to the rest laugh.gif

as for MRS JONES,,,what is she thinking,,,,,,idiot...is what i think of her,,,

the way I work it is,,,if you don't like what you see the turn the other way and get to f**k.......you love someone not just for their looks but for their hole being,,so love me for who i am ,and not for what you want me to be.... cool.gif
