  • This is one of the original grounds for 'breach of contract' --and the reason why if the bride leaves, the groom is entitled to the ring back, but if he goes he gives up his claim, on the woman and the ring.

    I don't think it is unreasonable to expect people to live up to their side, especially if them not doing so costs a great deal of money. Of course, at this point in time I'd expect a lot of the reasons for recouping the costs to have more to do with over-extending and buying a wedding no one involved could hope to afford...

  • Did he really chip in nothing? I think he was right to leave when he did. And I also think, this is why we eloped. It's just too much added stress and money for a new relationship.

    I'm on the fence on this one.
