Works out or not, it was a gift and shd not be returned.
That ought to be for her to keep, sell and use the money to clean your heart of the Nigro

Well first, I think that it depends on the break up. BUT its a symbolic gift, its not just any kind of gift and I think that it should be thrown away or returned.

if it is a cheap ring, I will encourage her to give it back. If it is expensive, the girl should sell it and keep the money.

hehehe---- and what if the guy wants the ring back ? or borrowed money to buy the ring ?

If the guy asked for it, tell him that your a$$ dont chop am.
If he borrowed money to buy the ring, too bad for him, BTW, the money he will get back will not be same value when he bought it anyways, and that will teach him to leave within his means

the man gives the ring to the woman to cement their engagement, the engagement is broken by the woman, why on earth will she keep the ring? the guy got to have the ring back. the lady keeping is like saying yes, i am interested. give it back and it is over.
Re: Broken Engagement: Who Should Get The Ring? by Ranks007(m): 11:22am On Nov 24, 2009
u gave the ring?
u promised what brought about the ring?
so if the man is the answer, must he have to get anoda ring for someone else he wishes to marry?

Re: Broken Engagement: Who Should Get The Ring? by Pelummy: 1:33pm On Nov 24, 2009
2 my own knwledge & understanding,the lady should return the ring.or if she tinks she cn stl superglue the broken pot let her keep it
Re: Broken Engagement: Who Should Get The Ring? by bigfoot79(m): 2:10pm On Nov 24, 2009
From he eyes of the law an engagement rinig is a gift to the woman, and the rules guiding gifts under the Nigerian Law of Contract, will not frown at it if the woman keeps her gift or otherwise part with it as she deem fit once the engagenment is called off.
However if there was a pre-nuptial agreement that spelt out how things will be shared after the engagement is over , then that is the one the law will honour.



but that na oyinbo, why she go kiip the ring wen she go go dey follow another man if no be thief aka BARAWO, i bet any lady would throw back a ring made with copper
anyway if u be lady and u wan keep ur engagement after dust don settle call i be lawyer trouble na my work 08026144703
Re: Broken Engagement: Who Should Get The Ring? by Nobody: 3:05pm On Nov 24, 2009
the woman should return the ring, or better still throw it away, but keeping is a no no no !!!
Re: Broken Engagement: Who Should Get The Ring? by Bokoharam: 3:53pm On Nov 24, 2009
I GUESS THE ANSWER IS:

"IF A SPOUSE DIES, WHO KEEPS THE RING? DOES WIDOW(ER) STILL KEEP THE RING?"
Re: Broken Engagement: Who Should Get The Ring? by nikkykay(f): 4:40pm On Nov 24, 2009
It is not a gift but a symbol of commitment.So if the lady is not ready for commitment again,she returns the ring without been asked.


@ Fhemmmy
Whn u had already known she shld not return it why did u start the topic.SHe shld return it.I think youare supporting her to keep the ring cos it is expensive if not u wuld have advised her to thrown it away.
Mind you the ring does not belong to her but to the guy's right woman.She was just fortunate to use for the period of the dating/courtship.

It started with a question btw me and someone else, and i think let us throw it to the house.
I am shocked that people think the woman shd give the ring back.
It is a gift and shd be kept by the woman
Re: Broken Engagement: Who Should Get The Ring? by posakosa(m): 5:01pm On Nov 24, 2009
Fhemmy are you male or female ?
Re: Broken Engagement: Who Should Get The Ring? by y me(f): 5:09pm On Nov 24, 2009
ogbono feli feli
that depends
if the ring is expensive and will cost much, i keep it and it goes to the black market direct cheesy
but it also depends on how we broke up if he his mister niceee that i care about so much i might do him a favour and let him have the ring undecided

Re: Broken Engagement: Who Should Get The Ring? by *Hauwa*: 6:31pm On Nov 24, 2009

Why shd she give a gift back?

It's not a gift
It's more of a bond that holds the both of them

I totally disagree.
It is a gift to seal the bond, so it is still a gift
