Frenchman Attempts To Smuggle Wife In Suitcase

A Frenchman brought the wrong kind of baggage into his relationship. Polish border guards arrested a man after he was caught smuggling his new Russian wife in a suitcase.

ABC News reports the man, who is in his 60s, married his 30-something wife in December. The couple was traveling from Moscow to Nice by train. The man was convinced that his new bride couldn't travel to the European Union without a visa. And so, he did what a newlywed would do: He stuffed his love into a carry on.

It turns out that the only way she could travel through the area freely is if she married a citizen -- which she did.

While much of the Internet called the incident "stupid," one Twitter user saw it in a different light.

"Yo if smuggling your wife between countries in a suitcase isn't love, idk what is," he said.

According to officials, around 100 people try to sneak in through the Polish border every year. They usually face up to three years in jail but in this particular case, RT reports police decided not to prosecute the newlyweds. They sent them back to Russia.

Hopefully they can enjoy A trip back to Europe together, side by side, the second time around.
