Eileen Bell’s question is coming up shortly, but I would like a few thoughts on this story:
MAN SUING TO GET BACK ENGAGEMENT RING
A man is suing his ex-fiancee to get back the engagement ring he gave her. According to The New York Post, 45-year-old Philip Langer is suing his ex fiancée, 43-year-old Ashley Jae Chesler, for not returning the $30,000 ring he gave her after breaking off their engagement.
The ring is a custom-made piece featuring a 2.52 carat diamond surrounded by 34 rubies and 55 smaller diamonds. Chelser has allegedly refused to give the ring back after dumping him, so now Langer has filed court papers demanding she either give the ring back or reimburse him the 30 grand.
And it looks good for Langer. According to N.Y. State Law, “An engagement ring is considered a conditional gift, where the condition is that the marriage actually takes place. This means that if the marriage does not take place and the bachelor asks for the ring back, then the potential bride will most likely have to return the engagement ring to the bachelor.” Thoughts?
