To be engaged would be a wonderful thing. Not necessarily because that means you’re getting ready to spend the rest of your life with the person you love, but because engaged people get a shitload of attention. What with the parties, presents, and checks, being engaged is basically every girl’s dream come true. And I haven’t even mentioned the fact that engagements usually entail a whopper rock for you to sport on your left hand for everyone to
admire be insanely jealous of.
When presented with a proposal a mere three months into her relationship, 43-year-old Ashley Jae Cheslr was gifted with a ring more beautiful than you or I will probably ever see. The custom made piece featured a 2.52 carat diamond, surrounded by 34 rubies and 55 smaller diamonds. Ashley later decided she wanted to call off her engagement. Tragic, but shit happens. When asked to return the custom-made ring to her ex fiancée, our girl Ash was basically like, “Nah.” Can you blame her?
Yes. The answer is yes, you can blame her. Withholding a man’s $30,000 engagement after kicking his sorry ass to the curb is not only a dick move, but also an illegal one. Apparently New York state laws deem an engagement ring a “conditional” gift, with the condition being that you actually go through with the marriage. Ashley refused to give the ring back to ex fiancée Philip Langer, who is now apparently filing court papers demanding that she either return the rock or reimburse him for its cost. This is why you don’t get engaged after three months, people. You need to truly know a bitch before giving her such a costly present.
On a completely unrelated note, does anyone know if Phil is back on the dating scene yet? I wouldn’t mind a casual run-in with a guy who goes $30,000 out of the way to make his lady happy, and this whole situation has my left ring finger feeling very, very bare. .
