If ever you guys out there need a reason not to get married, this is it!
When Wayne Gibbs asked RoseMary Shell to marry him, he gave her a 2 carat diamond ring and she happily said yes. Shell was living in Pensacola Florida at the time and decided to leave her $80k a year job to move to Gainesville to be with Wayne.
About a month after Shell moved in with Gibbs, however, Gibbs expressed second thoughts in a note he left in their bathroom: He wanted to postpone the wedding.

After hearing the case, a Hall County jury awarded Shell $150,000 on Wednesday.
As for her engagement ring, Shell said she does not know the value — but she will try to sell it.
All I can say is, WHAT THE PHUCK!
