Diamonds are a girls best friend, so what better way to say “I love You” on Christmas then asking her to marry you. That sounds like a commercial for a local jeweler but it is what lots of men do on Christmas. But is it a good idea?
A Sad Engagement Story
A former Chicago area bride-to-be is suing her ex-fiance for dumping her just four days before their fall 2010 wedding. Dominique A. Buttitta says Vito V. Salerno left her with $100,000 in bills. The Hoffman Estates attorney spent $30,000 to reserve a suburban banquet hall, more than $11,000 on flowers and lighting, $10,000 for an orchestra, $5,000 for a wedding gown and $600 for wedding shoes. She also claims Vito attended a bachelor party, where he engaged in “flirtatious and amorous acts in public,” which included lap dances and other contact with strippers.
