I think you both have attained the age of majority which is necessary for solemnization of marriage. It is a trite law that an adult person is free to decide marriage, and no one can compel him. However, you fell in a deep emotional attachment with your boyfriend, but at the same time, he has the liberty to decide about his marriage.

It does not matter that you have spent a colossal amount to fulfil his demand or other necessities. Therefore, this fact will have no relevance in order to compel your boyfriend for marriage. Even you can not force him to marriage by filing FIR or complaint because he has committed no offence if you spent that money with your free will.

Deceitful act

Your boyfriend has committed the offence of cheating if he took that amount by a fraudulent act. Therefore, you have the right to initiate a criminal proceeding for the crime of cheating. In this situation, you should file FIR against him under section 420 of the Indian Penal Code. When a person takes away any property by a deceitful act like making a false promise, he commits cheating.

It would be beneficial for you to collect evidence regarding the transfer of money in his account or any other evidence which can proof that you have spent that amount for his benefit. If your boyfriend made a false promise of marriage in order to make money from you; thus, it is a piece of good evidence. You can use this evidence against him in the registration of FIR as well as in the trial.
