Engagements Should be Taken Seriously!
A Florida court has recently accepted a jury verdict awarding a woman $150,000.00 against her former fiance who had ended their engagement. Here is a link to the story. Apparently, the woman had given up a high paying job and made other sacrifices to move the the city in Florida where her fiance lived. The verdict was somewhat unusual because engagements are broken off all the time and there's rarely any litigation over it. The promise to marry is not usually the basis for a good law suit. The ex-fiance plans to appeal, so we'll have to wait a while for the final word.
