Should I return my engagement ring after our breakup?


Answer by  OceanTiara (158)

When an engaged couple breaks up, it is customary for the ring to be returned. In this day and age however, there are no set rules regarding returning the engagement ring. If you would like to keep the ring, simply ask your partner if this would be acceptable. If the answer is no, protocal says return it.

Conventional ettiquette says yes, especially if it is a family heirloom. In some states (IA, NJ, MI, NM, KS, NY, PA, WI) it is legally considered a conditional gift and your ex could sue for it. In a CA court, whoever breaks the engagement doesn't get to keep it. In MT it is considered an unconditional gift. Wisconsin

The ring belongs to whoever bought it. You should give it back if you did not pay for it.

It depends on how you feel about the situation or by your state laws. In some states, it is considered a gift with a condition, so if you don't go through with the marriage for what ever reason you have to give it back by law. If not, you can but do you want that reminder?


Answer by  DouglasEarlClore (1236)

It depends on who broke up. An engagement ring is a mutual committtment to marry, a down payment agreement to "hold" you for the giver. If you break that committment, you should give the ring back. If he breaks it, you should keep it. Laws may vary from State to State.
