When an engagement ends after twelve days, who should keep the ring? You'd think the answer would be pretty cut-and-dry in that short amount of time: the girl should return the ring and everyone goes on their merry way.
Not so in the case of Roger Adler and Rena Hope Friedman. She insisted on keeping the 4-carat diamond engagement ring valued at $58,000. On the day after she received the ring from Roger, she reportedly had it appraised and convinced the appraiser to put her down as the ring's owner, making it easier for her to resell it.
Roger broke off the engagement when, after asking that he buy a new BMW and first class tickets to Australia for their honeymoon, she refused to allow his elderly parents to attend the wedding.
Roger, for his part, is now suing her, claiming she has a history of persuading men to marry her, and then breaking off the engagement and keeping the ring. Now there's a line of work I never thought to pursue.
