Christopher Ned Kelley of Georgia gave Melissa Cooper a $10,000 diamond ring. He never actually said “will you marry me,” but the bauble set off the usual chain of events: house purchase, child, Cooper becomes a stay-at-home mom.
Ten years go by. Kelley has affairs; Cooper finds out; they try to reconcile; Kelley wants out. Cooper sues Kelley for breach of contract to marry and the court awards her $50,000. The Georgia Appeals Court just upheld the decision.
