– from Paul A. in Wales, WI
I was dating a woman for several months when we decided to get engaged. I bought an expensive engagement ring with money I couldn't really afford to spend to show my love for her. We remained engaged for several more months before she ended the engagement. I did not spend that money as a gift, but as an investment toward our future. She refuses to give the ring back. So the marriage is off, but can I get the ring back?
