Default "Estranged couple squares off over 16K engagement ring"

Estranged couple squares off over $16K engagement ring - British Columbia - CBC News

I wonder if either of them have tallied up their legal bills so far to see how much the totals have exceeded the ring's value ...

Jeez.

Quoted from the linked article,
"The pair met on the dating website Plenty of Fish and got engaged three weeks later. They were together for about 20 months."

That explains a lot.

Better idea...don't get married again no ring.

She also disputes Zampieri's claim that he was willing to give her one of his kidneys.

"I asked him, he said no.”


What is wrong with people? Honestly, after such a short time together she should give back the ring - at the very least they should sell it and split the proceeds.

I'd rather lie in the road, wait for a steamroller and be hung on a close-line than get married again!!!

"Really...what a bold statement, did you say that with a straight face?"

Look at my avatar, what do you see? No, I wasn't serious about the clothes line.

Concerning the OP and the ring question, people who go searching for love on a website called 'to many fish" are bound to run into trouble ... stands to reason - there's so many of them because nobody else wants them

The best man at my wedding met someone from lavalife, and married her, and they are still happily married with kids ten years later. So much for your theory.

Yes, those sites are fine for book 'em and snook 'em purposes, though a person would have better odds at winning the lottery than finding a so-called soulmate.

It's not the only choice for 'homebody' types who, by the way are not anti-social at all, they simply don't like crowds - big difference.

I guess I'm old fashioned.

The ring is hers. Period. It was a gift, and now he wants it back?

I understand in the moment one call feel that way, but it's wrong - in my humble opinion.

When I caught the clip on TV I believe the female mentioned something about business debt which would leave me with the impression that there is more to the issue than a mere engagement ring. Yes, someone can indeed step into massive debt quickly by simply entering into a business which goes 'south.'

I suspect this is a case of the media manipulating the story for ratings.

My opinion is that if you give someone a gift you shouldn't expect to get it back. Does that make me a gold digger? Hardly.
