I proposed to my then fiancé in September 2017 and she accepted my proposal and the ring. A week later, she called and asked me was I serious, "Yes, I replied". Then she said lets start making the plans for the beach wedding I always dreamed of. Plans were made then deposits and reservations were made for our future together. Sometime in December she called me to ask to cancel the beach wedding plans. I would not because the deposits would not be returned. Then in January 2018 she told me that she had a change of heart and did not want to get married and that the engagement is off. She has not spoken to me since January 31st. She called off the engagement around the 16th of January. The ring has a value of $4,000 and the monies paid for the wedding is about $700. Is it possible to file a civil lawsuit to get my ring back that I am still paying for, as it was not me who called off the wedding?
I looked into this question years ago, and my recollection is that you are entitled to have the ring returned.
