Default "Mario Williams sues ex-fiancee for $785,000 ring"

Buffalo Bills defensive end Mario Williams is involved in a Houston lawsuit filed Monday, but he didn't do anything wrong. He's suing his ex-fiancee.
Williams sued his ex-fiancee Erin Marzouki in Harris County Court for the $785,000, 10-carat diamond engagement ring that he bought her before she dumped him.

Sucker.

First thing he should have done is bought her a ring of the same expense the average Joe can afford and see if she balks.

Buying a trophy wife / paying an escort; only difference is the duration of the deal.

I'm not sure what he expects to come from this lawsuit. I can't see him getting anything back, but he'll get to spend some more on her by paying lawyer and court fees I reckon.

Paying that much for a ring puts you in the "reap what you sow" category, imo of course

To paraphrase H.L Hunt's comment about his son Lamar's first season in KC:

"This is horrible - another 120 or 121 broken engagements, and Mario will be broke".

Cubic Z Mario. Put it in a nice setting she will never know. Unless she gets it checked out. Then you can play the "I knew you didn't trust me" card and its her fault for checking up.

On an unrelated note, I don't understand why my relationships don't work out better ...

I'll side with Mario on this one.

Maybe he's a bit gullible here but who knows? Maybe he has been with the girl for a long time and that made her easy to trust. Obviously he wanted to marry her and was fooled by her charade. Doesn't make him wrong just makes him naive to think that there aren't women out there that will only see him for what he's financially worth.

That ring isn't worth that much compared to how much he's being paid though. This seems more like a principle thing.

I'll never understand why a woman would think that they were entitled to keep an engagement ring from someone they did not marry. That's something that should be returned the moment you call it off. I don't know what kind of legal precedent might exist where this is concerned but I believe that in a world where what's right prevails this should be a slam-dunk for Mario. If she can't return the ring she should be facing jail time.

Take her to Judge Judy! She'll make her give the ring back.
No wedding, no ring.

Some things are cheaper to rent. At $785k she would fall into that category.

I do not perceive anyone trying to spend his money. And even if they were, I'm not sure what is so amazing about it. But that's just me.

And yes, it is his dough and his right to spend it however he wants to spend it.

That being said, we are also free to express our opinions on how many of us perceive he foolishly spends that money.

Unless you're making that type of money you don't know what foolish is. I'm sure there are people out there that would think the same about you buying fast food, coffee, new tv, etc...it's all about perception.

Of course it's about perception. Most things we talk about on this forum are about perceptions.

As far as me not knowing what foolish is, that is your perception. Perhaps I should be amazed that anyone would try to put thoughts into someone else's head just as you seem to be easily amazed when people try to spend someone else's money. But it does not amaze me. I just don't care.

Foolish is defined as lacking good sense or lacking good judgment. You are free to think whatever you want, just like I am free to do the same. And in my own perception, $785,000 for a freakin' ring is foolish regardless of your wealth. Obviously and always, JMO.

How screwed up in your head do you have to be to think you can keep an engagement ring after you called off the wedding?

She cray cray.

according to most courts of law an engagement ring is conditionary. And ending the engagement nullifies the contract and ya have to give the ring back.

1. He should get the ring back that comes with a hefty unrealized loss

2. It's not nearly as bad of a financial mistake as some here are making it out to be on a percentage basis

3. The hate for Mario is so overdone its unreal

I personally just have an issue with anyone spending that much on a piece of jewelry. Maybe, percentage-wise, it's not as dumb as I'd like to believe, but it still irks me. It also bothers me even more that so many women, when they actually have a choice, just always have to have more, More, MORE. Next, it'll be some woman with a $1,785,000 ring; and then her sister will need a $11,785,000 ring.

Whatever. I won't care as soon as I leave this thre...
