According to the Salt Like Tribune, Chris wanted to keep the albums for the loving messages Marsh wrote to him inside.
During the divorce proceedings, 2nd District Judge Michael Edwards ordered Marsh to give the boudoir albums to the original photographer to be edited then give those to her ex-husband.
"That person is to do whatever it takes to modify the pages of the pictures so that any photographs of [Lindsay Marsh] in lingerie or that sort of thing or even without clothing are obscured and taken out but the words are maintained for memory’s sake," the ruling stated.
\u201c@kazweida @JoJoFromJerz \nPlease talk about this! Women shouldn't HAVE to give up photos because we're "splitting" all PROPERTY in a divorce! But THIS is happening right now, in Utah! A woman is not "property"! Even if she's trying to get a divorce! \n\nMy account is too small to be noticed.\u201d
The original photographed initially refused to edit the images as as "it felt like a violation" and could damage her business legitimacy.
So Edwards instead ordered Marsh to hand over the boudoir albums to a third party graphic designer, a man Marsh does not know, to edit the images.
“I just want to clarify,” Marsh said. “The judge has ordered me to give nude photos of my body to a third party that I don’t know without my consent?”
Upon hearing the new ruling, the original photographer and close friend decided to edit the sensual images by putting large black boxes over Marsh's body.
\u201c@kazweida The family law system was designed at a time when divorce was considered immoral, a threat to democracy and in some cases - criminal. It hasn\u2019t evolved very much since then \ud83d\ude21\u201d
