Who Keeps the Ring?
Cheating on your fiancÃ© is justâ€¦ lame. I think we can all agree that if you're already shopping for a different model before the wedding, the long-term prospects don't look good.
Apparently John Gunther, 27, was still "shopping" when his fiancÃ©, Danielle Cavalieri, 26, found out she wasn't the only girl in his life. She called off their engagement.
Gunther demanded back the engagement ring, which is the ultimate in classless under the circumstances, but one would think that Cavalieri would have immediately returned the ring once she found out that her fiancÃ© cheated on her. Personally, I would have encased the ring in a concrete brick before giving it back.
Anyway, Cavalieri felt differently and wanted to keep the ring (weird – but if it looked anything like the Blue Nile ring pictured above, I kind of get it) so Gunther took her to court. Unfortunately for the girl, they live in NY and the court ruled that any jewelry given "in contemplation of marriage" needs to be returned.
So she lost the ring. But she won the war – she's marrying someone else on Saturday. And presumably, any future dates of John Gunther will find the press about the case readily available online.
Hopefully that will make any future girlfriends of his aware of who they're dealing with!
