Re: Who Keeps the Engagement Ring After a Break-Up
depends on the state;
some treat it as a gift in contemplation of an event (marriage). Unless that event takes place, it remains the property of the giver
some deal with it based on why the engagement ended. If either party terminates without valid justification, the ring goes to the other party. If either party terminates with justification, the ring goes to that party.
some simply say the woman gets it because it was a gift
I am not an attorney and any advice is not to be construed as legal advice. You might even want to ignore my advice. Actually, there are plenty of real attorneys that you might want to ignore as well.
