This woman takes to the Reddit platform of AITA to ask if she is in the wrong for selling her cheating fiancee's family heirloom to cover for the wedding expenses after the wedding got called off? OP clears that she gave fair warning to her former fiancee that if he doesn't help her take care of the expense she would have no choice but to take the extreme measures. However, after the guy refused to acknowledge the issue, OP had no choice but to take the action.

If you ask a woman what is the one thing in the world that cannot be forgiven, she will instantly reply, a cheating partner. 

This person took to the Reddit platform to share how her fiancee Mason cheated just few weeks before their wedding. OP writes that she called off the wedding and Mason was quick to part ways with her after the wedding was called off.

Till this point, everything was well, but there was a slight problem. OP writes she took a huge loan for wedding expenses and it was mutually decided by her and Mason that after the wedding they will pay it back together. 

However, now that the wedding is called off and Mason doesn't care how OP pays back the loan and tells her off flatly even if she goes into debt.

Disappointed, OP warns Mason if he doesn't cooperate she will sell the $25,000 worth engagement ring that is also his family heirloom. 

Mason continues to ignore her texts and through a mutual friend, OP gets to know that Mason thinks she doesn't have the guts to take such a huge action.

Pissed off, OP gives final warning to Mason and then ultimately sells the ring on an online website. When Mason gets to know, he creates a huge drama and cusses OP for selling something that belonged to his great grandmother. 

OP shares that this was the only way to cover the wedding costs however, her family tells her that she was overdramatic and didn't have to actually sell the ring. In doubt, OP asks Reddit if she is in the wrong for selling the ring?

Internet labels OP NTA.

Reddit users assure OP that she is definitely not the villain here, in fact, it is Mason who wronged her. Considering the fact that OP warned Mason fairly before taking the measure as she was left with no option, it serves Mason just right for cheating on her and disrespecting OP's situation.

One person writes: "NTA. You: pay me back or I’ll sell the ring Mason: no. You: sells the ring

Mason: shocked pikachu face

You gave him all the warning in the world. Can’t be TA given that."

Another writes: "Not to mention, this is the exact reason for expensive engagement rings in the first place:** so a woman wouldn’t be left financially destitute in the event of a broken engagement.

NTA and it honestly sounds like you dodged a freaking freight train by not marrying that…guy.

**(yes, I know, engagement rings were popularized by an excellent marketing campaign by DeBeers)"
