    My reference to man is in the General sense. If it was the other way around shouldn't have to pay him anything.

In court, all you have to show for the most part is intent to follow through on an action. So, for example, if you send off an email, saying, "Hey Bob, I'll send you the check next Tuesday" a judge with likely consider this as clear intent that you meant to pay by that date, and not just any old time you felt flush with money. In this case, it would be extremely easy...excuse me, it was extremely easy... to determine that the husband-to-be had clear intent to marry this woman and that she had reasonable expectation to be taken care of. But as it turned out he was a complete and utter scumbag, and as is so often the case with utter scumbags it required the courts to make him do the right thing.
    Yeah, I'm aware of that. It's why I never say a damn thing to anyone about such things. It's best to just keep them in the dark in case I change my mind. The law is generally stupid on these matters.

    Whenever I say "And??" it usually means I don't care. I was not looking for further information on the topic.

    Oof, yeah, I run into clients like that, who refuse to put any commitments or statements of intent into writing because they're afraid of being held to their word, always sure to keep an exit door propped open. I immediately push them into my "difficult client and probably not trustworthy" basket.

    What's wrong with you? I don't care for your arguments to support the idiocy that is the law. Get over it.

    Cool, whenever you ask me a question in the future and I dont answer, it means I see zero value in your post and it's not worth my time answering.

    Well people DO change their minds. I don't really like the law coming down on me because I changed my mind. If there is no contract there is nothing to enforce. It's that simple.
