A WOMAN has revealed that she sold the family heirloom ring that her fiance gave her after discovering that he cheated, but now he says she’s the ‘a**hole.’
Taking to Reddit the woman, 27, explained that she was supposed to get married to Mason*, 29, later this month but called it off when a friend discovered he had been cheating with an ex.
With it being so close to the wedding, the majority of things booked were non-refundable and the bride had lost almost £15,000 having taken out a loan to cover the costs.
Mason had initially agreed to help cover the costs, making the interests on the loans lower but told her it was no longer his problem and has refused to respond to her since.
Faced with a mounting debt, the bride decided to take matters into her own hands.
She wrote: “When we got engaged, Mason proposed to me with a family heirloom ring belonging to his great grandmother that was worth $25,000 (£18,397).
“When we canceled the wedding, he told me he wanted the ring back but we never got around to arranging a time he could pick it up.
“Because I don't want to go into debt, I told him that if he didn't agree to help pay it off (I wanted a lawyer involved) that I would sell the ring.

“He didn't reply and ignored the messages however after talking to a mutual friend (Jake) I found out he had actually read the messages and told everyone he didn't care because I '’wouldn't do it’.”
She then asked the mutual friend to tell the groom that if she didn’t hear from him in 24 hours she would indeed sell the ring.
The bride continued: “Jake told me he again said he didn't care and didn't think I would do it.
“So the next day I sold the ring to an online website and messaged Mason to tell him it had been done and told him he shouldn't have underestimated me.
“He started cussing me out, saying I didn't scare him and that he would be around for the ring later. True to his word, he came to my house demanding the ring and I told him I sold it already and showed him the proof.
“He blew up at me, saying I was a petty b**** and that I shouldn't have sold it because it wasn't just a ring, it was an heirloom that meant a lot to his family.
“A lot of my family members think I overreacted and shouldn't have gone to extreme measures as it will be hard for him to get the ring back, if he even can at all.”
Fellow Redditors were quick to reassure the woman that she was completely in the right, sharing their thoughts in the comments.
One wrote: “If you don’t want to lose a valuable family heirloom, don’t give it to someone and then cheat on them.”
“F*** him, f*** his ex and his family and go buy some cute boots,” said another.
While a third added, “HE cheated, HE refused to help pay for the wedding (that was supposed to involve him); he gets what he deserves, frankly.”
However, some were quick to warn that the bride could face some legal issues over the ring.
One warned: “The ring is probably considered a conditional gift, and he can sue you for the entire price. So then you'll be out $25k instead of $20k.”
