You're not alone. My fiancee did the same thing, sorta. She went to "visit" a friend out of town, and later claimed she wouldn't be coming back because she needed to find herself in a spiritual sense; this only meant she wanted to find herself in bed with another dude... A year later, now she continues to try to get back with me and fix things, but nah, i'm better off without her and i'm damn sure you are as well. Good luck!
#87 - there are legal instances where she should not have to give it up, received on Christmas, Birthday..... Then would be legally a gift. There are other points to be made like the physical representation of a contract which is now broken. Thousands of dollars can go into these rings, and there is legal protection on both sides depending on how, when, and why it was given. That being said, common courtesy would dictate that he gets the ring back, not to mention why would the tosser of a fiancée want to keep the ring knowing what it symbolizes. Not to mention he paid for it. Why should she be able to cancel it and profit off of the ring? I got my first one back, it was over 5k, and I wasn't letting the skank keep it.
An engagement ring is only considered a gift if it's given on a special occasion I.e. Christmas, Valentine's day, birthday. If it was given on a normal day you definitely have a good chance of getting it back. Even better when infidelity is added. That's why lawyers will warn you to not give an engagement as a gift during events that are listed.
Actually #37 there is legal precedent that entitles him to get the ring back because she broke it off. I forget the name of the case but it was in the 1920s or 1930s, where the judge ordered the lady to give the ring back to the man. Of course assuming he wants to take it that far, which I probably wouldn't unless the ring was really expensive.
Well I know here in America the courts will tell you that you're "shit outta luck." That's a quote from the judge after she told me I had no right to get my 5000$ ring back. In the future cover your ass and get paperwork signed and notarized. Have it state that she will return the ring if the marriage/engagement falls through.
you dodged a bullet bro...
Good.. You got out before things got worse.
