    Default Who Keeps the Engagement Ring After a Break-Up

    If a couple become engaged and the man gives the woman an engagement ring, who should keep that ring if the two should break up before marrying?

    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

    Generally, the ring is considered a binder of the marriage agreement. If the giver reneged, the person receiving it keeps it due to the broken promise. If the receiver breaks the promise to marry, they give it back as they failed to complete the agreement.
    With enough thrust, pigs fly just fine.
    You may believe that you understood what you think I said. I'm not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant.
