    I would probably sue for half the costs. In reality though, it’s her own fault for paying more attention to her 100k wedding and not enough to her relationship to know her man was on the quits. There are signs for these things, you know.

    My fi and I are working our butts off to pay for our wedding. I would sue in heart beat. No way I’m going to lose that much money because you’re flakey and changed your mind. He should at least be liable for 50%.

    Then again if that happened I would probably be in jail for killing someone.

    I would sue. If you’re not 100% sure about getting married, before the deposits are paid is a really good time to speak up.

    Absolutely I would, for that kind of cash (50,000)- that’s the new truck I want or the boat.  Both of which – dude magnets, all the problems solved.

    She paid for everything, it looks like…

    I wonder what his side of the story. Maybe he saw her spending 95K of her own money and she turned into Bridezilla and wouldn’t listen to him about anything and finally he just couldn’t do it and bailed?

    ETA: maybe she wouldn’t let him say no and get out!

    I don’t think she should be able to sue him for emotional distress, but I do hope she wins for half of the costs of the wedding, if she really paid them all out of her own pocket.

    I personally don’t think i would sue, i’d just be glad to have a loser like that out of my life.

    You have a while to figure out if you want to get married or not.  So speak up BEFORE you put deposits down.  No excuse to leave someone at the altar.

    I’m curious – why only half?  I think he should have to reimburse her for everything she spent, since he’s the one who rendered it moot.

    ETA: Unless, of course, he’d been telling her repeatedly not to spend so much on the wedding. That would make it more complicated.

    @CaraMia10:  I voted yes. 

    I also think she should sue her parents for naming her “Buttitta.”

    Hells yeah I would sue! He should have to reimburse at least half. Even if she did “neglect” her Fiance to the point that he no longer wanted to marry her. That’s a grown man…he should have had enough balls to bow out LONG before the 11th hour. Show me the money.

    EDIT: …and the fact that she has to sue him in order to recoup her losses says something about her former Fiance. He really should have offered to pay since HE is the one who backed out.
