Whether or not you agree with the law (and it's not at all clear why such a law is needed), it still seems like these women entered into an arrangement where they knew what they were getting into.
In what world can their be a guarantee that you'll meet someone if there simply are no matches and no one wants to meet you back?
Apparently, one woman paid $1,000 for a six month membership and met no one, while the other woman paid $3,790 for the (no, seriously) "Marriage Program." Ah, no wonder the expectations were set a bit high.

SHOREWOOD (WITI) -- They were looking for romance, but got ripped off.
This is definitely the worst purchase that I have ever made in my life.
The company was being sued in Pennsylvania, so maybe there is hope for us in other states.
They suck you in right away when you walk in the place-the receptionists all look like Playboy playmates, and I was told by a nice-looking saleslady how many dates I would receive, and other bs.

Elliot Doering is one of the many who shelled out six figures for a dating service membership. "The likelihood of finding an individual who doesn`t have a car and is willing to date on a bus, it ain't happening,'" Doering said. Worst of all, Dpering found the "local" dating service wasn't so local after all. FOX6's hidden cameras showed that the company's sales pitch was more like an interrogation. After the lawsuit was filed in 2009, Great Expectations fled the state, and Doering wondered if he would ever get his money back. I figured well, maybe he's fighting it and he lost," Doering said. In all, the state has paid out more than 0,000 to 100 victims, and sent a message to any business looking to cash in on someone else's weakness.
