Your cheap boyfriend is not entitled to anything back unless it was an engagement ring and you broke off the engagement. He was probably not your best choice for a husband anyway.

Gifts are not something you legally have to give back or repay. Legally, he would need to show a jury that they were not gifts, but loans of some sort. He can sue, but that doesn't mean a jury will agree with him.
