Engagement Is Called Off: Who Keeps The Ring? by Angeleyez(f): 12:24pm On Apr 22, 2008
It is disputed on whether or not a woman is entitled to keep an engagement or return it when an engagement is called off.

In my opinion, it depends on what (who) broke up the enagement. If the man breaks up the engagement then the woman should keep the ring (if she wants); however, if the woman breaks the enagement then she should return the right.

What are your thoughts?

That is such a good Question. It doesn't matter who broke it off, the only thing that matters is who messed up. So, do you think she should keep the ring even when they a couple of thousand worth??

I say the ring belongs to whoever paid for it. Damn, i want my daggone ring back !!!

It doesn't matter who breaks up the engagement,

the engagement ring has to be returned to the man if the wedding is called off as it signifies the acceptance of marriage and if the marriage is off (for whatever reason) then it has to be returned.

This isn't just my 2 cents, its the etiquette of engagement and marriage.

I WOULD GIVE THE RING TO HER
WHEN SHE SEES IT 24/7, SHE MIGHT HAVE A CHANGE OF MIND
UNLESS SHE'S A DARE DEVIL
Re: Engagement Is Called Off: Who Keeps The Ring? by Nobody: 7:24pm On Apr 22, 2008
Even if it were the man that broke up the relationship, I would gladly give him his ring back. Why would I want to keep it? The last thing I need is something that reminds me of him.
Re: Engagement Is Called Off: Who Keeps The Ring? by almondjoy(f): 7:30pm On Apr 22, 2008
Who ever bought the ring. . .keeps the ring! Period!  Na im money.  No love lost there! Does not matter who broke the engagement.
Re: Engagement Is Called Off: Who Keeps The Ring? by Nobody: 7:32pm On Apr 22, 2008
Yeah, you bought the ring you the ring lipsrsealed
Re: Engagement Is Called Off: Who Keeps The Ring? by 4Him1(m): 7:33pm On Apr 22, 2008
some women are rogues. They'd be selling that ring on the black market faster than you can say "break up".
Re: Engagement Is Called Off: Who Keeps The Ring? by naijadiva2(f): 7:37pm On Apr 22, 2008
i was watching judge hackett or one of them woman judge and the guy was suing his ex fiancee because he wanted the ring back. so from my understanding, she was like it depends on the law of the state. most states have a law saying you should give the ring back no matter who called off the engagement but in their particular state, (i think it was Missour) an engagement ring is considered a gift so the lady had the right to keep it and it was worth like a thousand dollars. I personally would give it back because it seems like the right thing to do.
Re: Engagement Is Called Off: Who Keeps The Ring? by whitelexi(m): 7:41pm On Apr 22, 2008
The ring should go back to the guy, if he broke up the engagement, then he can demand for the ring.
If she broke up, she ought to return the ring.
But it shouldnt be a big issue, if the engagement is over, its over, c'est finni cheesy
Re: Engagement Is Called Off: Who Keeps The Ring? by bawomolo(m): 7:42pm On Apr 22, 2008
most women would pawn it off

In certain states (in the US), the law is if the man was the cause of the break up (say he cheated and the woman called it off b/c of that) or if he just decided not to marry her and calls of the enagaement, then she is not entiled to return the ring but if the woman was the cause of the break up (say if she cheated or something or just decided to end the engagement), then she must return the ring or pay the worth to the man.
Re: Engagement Is Called Off: Who Keeps The Ring? by ariblaze(m): 8:20pm On Apr 22, 2008

depends on why it was called off dont you think?

if it's mutual, it should be returned but if some sorta "sinster secret" came out then he or she should pawn it
Re: Engagement Is Called Off: Who Keeps The Ring? by almondjoy(f): 8:30pm On Apr 22, 2008
If Na me buy the ring. . .make I leave am for the man for another babe abi?  Please I keep ma damn ring.  Afterall, I bought it on behalf of his broke arse and engaged maself behalf of his broke arse too. What the heck is he breaking for crying out loud if I bought the ring? shocked

Why is are some people saying whoeva buys the ring gets to keep it?

Do women buy their own engagement ring? (or contribute ti it?)
