Have to say, it sounds a bit like a prank to me, if they didn't previously have issues. Of course, we don't know that...

Well if he dodged a bullet then that makes OP the matrix? :)

Bring up the receipt for the ring, and file that thing as stolen. If it's a really nice ring then that's plenty of time for them to post some pictures in prison visitation. "Aww the boy snuck me in a a dozen roses and a switch blade, he's the best (duck face)"

You're not alone. My fiancee did the same thing, sorta. She went to "visit" a friend out of town, and later claimed she wouldn't be coming back because she needed to find herself in a spiritual sense; this only meant she wanted to find herself in bed with another dude... A year later, now she continues to try to get back with me and fix things, but nah, i'm better off without her and i'm damn sure you are as well. Good luck!

#87 - there are legal instances where she should not have to give it up, received on Christmas, Birthday..... Then would be legally a gift. There are other points to be made like the physical representation of a contract which is now broken. Thousands of dollars can go into these rings, and there is legal protection on both sides depending on how, when, and why it was given. That being said, common courtesy would dictate that he gets the ring back, not to mention why would the tosser of a fiancée want to keep the ring knowing what it symbolizes. Not to mention he paid for it. Why should she be able to cancel it and profit off of the ring? I got my first one back, it was over 5k, and I wasn't letting the skank keep it.

That seems so arbitrary! Last time I checked, people could give each other gifts on days that weren't Christmas or their birthday... so that ruling just seems so strange.

Accepting an engagement ring Is a binding nonverbal contract. If one person breaks said contract then the ring goes back to the giver. Unless it was a Christmas, Valentines, Birthday, Etc., gift. Cheating bitches should not be allowed to keep an expensive ring they never bought.

104 - a ring is not a gift but like above said, part of a contract. On special days like birthdays, Christmas, anniversaries, it would be both a gift and part if a contract.

I agree that he should have questioned the ring as well but 1) he either didn't care that she was engaged or 2) she just said that she bought it or it was a gift from someone ie, family. either way Shady that she is still wearing it. what a BITCH!

#5, it doesn't work that way. An engagement ring is a gift that doesn't have to be returned. Some girls give it back for emotional reasons, but others realize they have a chunk of precious metal and gems worth a lot of money, so they forget the giver and keep it.

An engagement ring is only considered a gift if it's given on a special occasion I.e. Christmas, Valentine's day, birthday. If it was given on a normal day you definitely have a good chance of getting it back. Even better when infidelity is added. That's why lawyers will warn you to not give an engagement as a gift during events that are listed.

Actually #37 there is legal precedent that entitles him to get the ring back because she broke it off. I forget the name of the case but it was in the 1920s or 1930s, where the judge ordered the lady to give the ring back to the man. Of course assuming he wants to take it that far, which I probably wouldn't unless the ring was really expensive.

My ex's father bought the majority of the ring, so I gave it back hoping that my ex would sell it and pay back his dad. I really doubt he did... He likely went out and bought a ton of video games. But I don't have that guilt.

Under Australian Law it's a conditional gift that must be returned. There's legal precedent in NSW. news.com.au/national/men-own-the-engagement-ring/story-e6frfkp9-1111113566094

Well I know here in America the courts will tell you that you're "shit outta luck." That's a quote from the judge after she told me I had no right to get my 5000$ ring back. In the future cover your ass and get paperwork signed and notarized. Have it state that she will return the ring if the marriage/engagement falls through.

Make sure you keep her as a friend. Because when you find a new girl, your ex is going to get jealous and want you back.

@26..... love that you called this kid a TWAT!!!! I was just telling my bestfriend lastnight that is one of the best words to call someone when the are acting like a complete ass wipe!!!

although this is a hard time, think of the good side, you dodged a bullet. she seemed like loose cannon. go find someone worthwhile of your time. and ask for the ring back.
