A Woman’s Fiancé Died Before Their Wedding and His Family Kept Harassing Her to Return the ‘family Heirloom’ Engagement Ring, but She Knew They Were Lying

Four years ago, a woman had fallen deeply in love with a man named John, whom she had ultimately ended up getting engaged to. Unfortunately, John died in a car accident before the couple could get married, so the woman cherished her engagement ring, yet people would soon try to take it away from her.

The woman explained an amusing yet crucial detail in her story: “The ring John used to propose to me with was two sizes too big”, she laughed. “Thankfully, he kept the receipt, and we got it replaced in the right size.”

A Tragic Event

Sadly, the woman never actually married John. After three years of planning and saving for the wedding, they were beginning to consider official wedding dates, when John died tragically in a car accident.

Unfortunately, all the money that the couple had saved was spent on John’s funeral. The only thing that the woman had left to remember their engagement by was the ring, which she cherished fondly.

However, just one day after the funeral, John’s brother approached the woman with a shocking request. He asked her to return the engagement ring because it had apparently been passed down in the family as an heirloom for generations. 

Her Denial

However, the woman immediately became suspicious and denied this statement. “I accused him of lying because I still had the receipt as proof that the ring was bought for me”, she recounted. “We argued for a bit and he eventually stormed out.”

Further Accusations

However, this would not be the end of these accusations. “I started getting calls from John’s family, claiming that I was a liar and demanding the ring back”, the woman remembered. “I even got a letter from their lawyer, demanding that I reimburse them for the costs of John’s funeral.” 

She Was Shocked

The woman could not believe what she was hearing. She and John’s family knew fine well that she had paid for his funeral. She was outraged that they had the audacity to take legal action over this bizarre accusation, just days after the death of her beloved fiancé.

Thankfully, the woman knew that she was not lying, so she also got a lawyer involved. She showed her lawyer all the receipts as evidence, and the legal battle commenced. Unsurprisingly, her evidence reigned supreme, and she won the court case. 

The Unsettling Return

The woman had assumed that this unfortunate turmoil was behind her, but recent events proved otherwise. John’s sister, now engaged herself, contacted the woman once again, expressing her desire to have the ring returned to her. The woman expressed her amazement that this debate was being raised again, reminding the sister of her evidence, before blocking her. 

The Friend’s Perspective

Despite the woman blocking her, John’s sister still found ways to contact her and did so one day whilst the woman was having brunch with a friend. She was shocked to hear that the friend believed she should simply return the ring, regardless of whether it was bought or not. The woman couldn’t have disagreed more, yet this sentiment was echoed by other friends. 

Venting Her Confusion

The woman was incredibly confused by the situation, heading online one day to express her thoughts. Responses mostly suggested she take action against the family. “Talk to a lawyer”, someone suggested. “You are being harassed by the greedy, lying, litigious family of your deceased partner. None of them deserve a thing from you.”

Everyone was shocked that the woman’s friends were siding with John’s family. “You need better friends if they are siding with the sister”, another commenter suggested. “Your ring was important to you, and it’s yours and yours only. Why on Earth would you give it away!?”

However, one rather unpopular comment was suspicious of the whole situation. “You’re obviously not lying about the purchased ring, but this all seems a bit fishy to me”, someone responded. “Is it possible that John received a similar heirloom and sold it, and now his family thinks you have stolen it?”
