Only In America: To sue with love

On Wednesday, Piers Morgan used his "Only in America" segment to estimate the cost of repairing a broken heart.

Telling the tale of a disgruntled groom-to-be, Morgan concludes that often times a wedding officiant isn't as valuable as an attorney:

"Love may conquer all, but when it doesn't, there's always a fat, nasty lawsuit to cry over."

As the nation sees piles of paperwork and countless countersuits filed each year, the "Piers Morgan Tonight" host feels that a recent fiancé fiasco is as worrisome as they come:

"Meet Steven Silverstein. He's a 29-year-old telecommunications executive from New York, who instead of hearing wedding bells, is now, heading to court."

Having been left by fiancé Kendra Platt-Lee before the two even reached the aisle, Silverstein is suing, in an attempt to recoup funds related to the life they never got to spend together:

"He's demanding nearly 50-thousand dollars, for the money she took from their joint-account, for the rent, for the deposits they made on their trip down the aisle," explains Morgan. "Isn't it romantic?"

Before fleeing for California, Platt-Lee returned the "rock," giving back an engagement ring priced at more than 30 thousand dollars. Not only is that as far as she's willing to go, she plans to see Silverstein's suit, and raise him one:

"Love in the time of lawyers," mocks Morgan. "Isn't it wonderful?"

For a man that prides himself on the quest for "proper love," Silverstein's rush for reimbursement is incomprehensible:

"As for Mr. Silverstein, I applaud you," he says, with tongue planted firmly in cheek. "Anyone can just walk away from a bad breakup, or try to move on, and perhaps find love with somebody else."

"Only in America," reminds the host, is the honeymoon over before it even starts:

"But not you. No, no. You decided to go after your ex-fiancé, in a bitter and twisted manner, convinced that some kind of court action will mend your heart back together."

Free of charge, Morgan offers his own two cents: "Just man up, and move on."
