Roy Williams suing girlfriend for engagement ring

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."

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

The way it reads is that she did try to give it back and he would not accept it. What does Texas say about that?

According to the article on ESPN.com, she has not tried to return the ring.  In fact, she first claimed that she "lost" the ring and a claim was filed with the insurance company.  The insurance company investigated and determined the ring was not, in fact, lost.  It was not until after the suit was filed that her father started saying they would return the ring, which they have not yet done apparently.

It's a life lesson. Just think how much money he's saving by not actually marrying this woman. Money pit averted!

Next time send it C.O.D.
It is a pretty shaky relationship where you first say, 'I'll propose by mail,' and secondly "Keep the ring, you'll come back to me."  It sounds more like she ended things and he thought I will show her how much I love her, and sent this ring that did everything but impress her.  She would be smart sending the ring back but and hope and pray that might  prevent him from stalking her.
