A woman said yes when her boyfriend asked her to marry him, but now she has decided to take a step back, and she wants to keep the $785,000 engagement that she was offered as a part of the proposal. According to ABC News, the man who purchased the ring now wants it back, claiming that his fiancée broke off the engagement. He says that he deserves to reclaim the 10 carat ring so that he can save the money that he spent. The woman in the suit says that her ex-fiance's claims are silly and ridiculous. She explains that he broke up with her five times, and that he was an emotional roller coaster.
This woman says that she deserves to keep the ring because of the emotional trauma of the relationship. She also claims that the ring was a gift, and gifts cannot be reclaimed when the relationship is broken. Her lawyer says that the man in the case kept telling the woman that he was going to break up with her, but wanted her to keep the valuable ring. Her attorney says that the woman has no plans to sell the ring at present. It is in a safe deposit box at present. This next Friday, the case will go to a hearing.
