Can a woman sue a man for breach of promise?
We have been dating nearly four years, and engaged for nearly two (since Nov. 2005). He is still unwilling to set a date for us to be married (I don't want any type of wedding) and I have no reason to believe he ever will be willing. He says it is because I have "issues" and "change the rules".
We are both now in our mid-50s. He's a widower with 4 older kids, I'm divorced with no kids. I have been an unpaid cook, maid, seamstress, secretary, nurse, companion on trips, and tutor to his kids for 4 years. A month ago, I told him our physical relationship was over until we were married. I'm 90% certain he will never marry me.
Please do not admonishing me for being such a fool or for allowing this to occur. He has told me repeatedly he will marry me. Fact is, he is unwilling to set a date. I honestly believe I have been misled and strung along.
Do I have any legal recourse? The state in question is MO. Thank you.
