The best rule I can offer to anyone who wants to marry their significant other is this: Know for a fact that when you propose, they'll say yes.

Cowboys wide receiver Roy Williams would probably agree with that rule and, since he's currently suing a former girlfriend, would also probably add: "Don't mail the engagement ring when you do propose."

See, according to the Odessa American, Williams is currently suing former 2009 Miss Texas USA Brooke Daniels in order to get a $76,000 engagement ring he sent to her. In the mail.

"I'm not going to talk about it," Williams told ESPN Dallas' Calvin Watkins on Wednesday. "It's a non-issue."
Cowboys Offseason

Well, actually it might be an issue -- Daniels' father Michael claims Williams didn't want the ring back, even after Daniels decided she didn't want to marry him. "He said to her, 'I'm not like a lot of people, I don't want the ring back. You'll eventually come back to me,' and she didn't," Michael Daniels said, per the OA.

The spiciest part about all this, though, is that apparently Texas law states that if the donor of the ring (perhaps you prefer "the engager"?) is at fault for terminating an engagement, the ring doesn't have to be returned.

In this case, Daniels' decision to terminate the relationship would actually require her to return the ring to Williams.

Of course, that still doesn't mean that, going forward, Williams should ignore my rule about marriage proposals.

Roy Williams suing girlfriend for engagement ring

If I just left one job and started another, when I buy her a ring do I base the 2 months salary on my last job or the one I'm starting? Is it all right to average the two? Also, is that gross salary or after-tax?

I want her to know how much I love her. EXACTLY how much.

3 months salary is the rule of thumb?!  That's ridiculous!  I understood it to be 10% of your annual salary, not 25%.

Ahahaha   What kind of tool proposes though the mail on a recorded message?

Maybe if you were a soldier stuck in Europe during WW2, but come on man.

$76,000?   What ever happened to the rule of thumb that the ring should be 3 months salary?

Roy Williams suing girlfriend for engagement ring

Well, one thing I can say for Cowboys Roy Williams...he was smarter when he negotiated his deal when he was traded to the Cowboys from the Lions. Why in the world would he send his engagement ring through the mail?? Well, maybe he still wants her, but if I gave someone a 76K ring, I wouldn't mail it and I sure would make sure I got it back if she changed her mind. Roy will be playing elsewhere this year, so we won't have to watch him screw up Cowboys games with fumbles or drop passes...the guy us a stiff.

Good luck Roy...lol

He probably needs it for the money since the Cowboys will probably cut him.
