    Default Do You Have to Give Back Your Engagement Ring if Your FiancÚ Calls Off the Wedding

    A couple in Maryland has been engaged for several months. The man suddenly called off the wedding and demanded the return of his wedding ring. Is the woman entitled to keep the ring? Does it make any difference that he won't explain why he called off the wedding?

    Default Re: Do You Have to Give Back Your Engagement Ring if Your FiancÚ Calls Off the Weddin

    In Maryland, like most states, a wedding ring is a conditional gift. The condition is completion of the marriage. When the marriage is called off, the condition fails and the ring must be returned. It does not matter why the engagement was called off, so a failure to explain won't change the rights of the parties.
