Can someone short sale a house to someone who is living in the house with them(furure wife)?


We put a bid on a house and come to find out that he want to try to sell it to his future wife first so he does not have to lose the house. He is making the bank take the hit for his mistakes (a 250,000 dollar hit) and going to let his future wife buy it for 119,000 when he paid and owes 350,000. Is this wrong and is there Rules against this kind of thing happining?
