We and the girl's family went ahead and had the engegement in May.We did not accept even a single rupee or single gift in the form of gold or any other form.But,we had given the girl and her family 25 plus soverigns of gold as gift and as a mark of engagement.
But we soon realised that the girl's family is money minded and they had come to us just for our money;we in our family beleived that if this would continue and we get married later,it would cause misery and sadness.Hence we called off the engagement and had let the girl 's family known.
Now I have two questions-Can the girl or her family out of anger or greed go ahead and initiate criminal proceedings at me for calling off the engagement?
Other,they are not willing to give back those 25 soverigns back to us.What can we do to get that back legally?.We have the actual original bill of the jewel that we had bought.
Thanks in advance.
