In 2005, I married someone I’d met three years before, but only got involved with six months prior.
Sadly, five years later we separated. Due to then-financial circumstances we did the “living separated under one roof” thing – but I thought that her bringing her new boyfriend into the home was a bit much. We sold the house within six months, and went our separate ways.
However, upon last inspection of the empty house before sale, I found her wedding dress hanging in her bedroom closet – with nothing else. I took it, expecting her to contact me.
It’s been eight years: I assume I can sell it. I paid for it – but I also paid for her engagement and wedding rings (not to mention $20,000 worth of other jewellery over the years) which she kept. The thing is, this dress is also around $10,000 – isn’t it hers?
I’m assuming that she left it deliberately – but I can’t figure why she didn’t just take it and sell it.
When Mamamia's Podcast Director Rachel Corbett read Obviously Clueless' call for help, she had some very strong feelings about it all.
"That was a d*ck move. She meant to leave that wedding dress sitting in that house for you to find it," she said.
"That I am not impressed with. You need to get that thing on eBay!"
