    Take time in your relationships and pick them wisely.



    Money doesn't fill the deeper voids in man.

    Ex-fiance' says it all. He was trying a ploy that broken hearted men use when they are desperate to get a woman back. Most likely he'll be fine and move on.

    So much wrong with this story...

    First off, he gave her the engagement ring, it's hers. He's not going to get reimbursed for it.
    Secondly, shouldn't his health related info be kept confidential?

    If I were a big time pro athlete, I would follow Derek Jeter's example. Date the hottest women that I could get (without getting anyone pregnant), but wait to get married until my playing career was over. That way, none of the money that I earned while playing would be community property. Mario got off easy. He should learn his lesson and not get married for another 5-7 years. As far as his health info, I don't know what is going on with that info being made public.

    I went through this with my ex-fiancé. Technically the engagement ring is a promise. It's not technically her property yet. If he can prove she broke off the wedding he will get it back. That's why her counter argument is that he broke off the wedding. In which case she gets to keep it. It all depends on who the judge believes. I got my ring back just in case you were wondering

    Re: Take time in your relationships and pick them wisely.

    Why would any woman want to keep the ring of a man who proposed to her, before breaking it off?

    By the way, does anyone think relationship issues messed with Williams' head last season? The cat wasn't the same. He was back in the system that best suited him and still couldn't produce.

    I still say #1 - he gave her the ring, it's hers now. and #2 - putting those text messages out to the public was wrong

    Be glad you got away cheap Mario, move on and don't get married!

    That's true. You can't be deeply involved with someone, only to start asking for things back.

    The article doesn't really mention what started the fallout in their relationship, so I couldn't really judge. But the fact that he put a ring on her finger means that he was pretty serious. Maybe she wasn't, maybe she's just a money grubbing whore, who knows. But if I put a ring on a woman's finger and she does something cruddy, like say bang another guy while the ring I put on her finger is still there, yeah I want my ring back. I'm not wasting my money on someone I thought I loved. There's a million reasons a relationship ends, but if she was the one who broke it off, he deserves the ring back. That ring is a promise to get married. Not a gift to dump my ass and get a close to a million dollar ring.

    Jeter is a smart man. He knows how to play the system. Plus you know he's banging the hottest chicks.

    I'd heard that unless the ring was given on a traditionally gift giving day (Christmas, Birthday, or other) that you should be able to get the ring back in the case of a broken engagement.


    ARE YOU NOT ENTERTAINED?!

    If it was anything below a $10k engagement ring, she probably would just return it.

    What she should do is offer to sell it back to him for like 300k. Unless he's super confident he's going to get it back, he can recoup some of his losses while saving face, and she makes the money, just not as much.

    They live(d) in TX, and apparently there's a law about this there...if the man broke the wedding off, it's hers. If she broke the wedding off, it's his. The hard part is how to prove which one broke it off. Without any kind of hard evidence, this is just going to devolve into "he said/she said" crap.
