Re #6: Yeah, but she isn't the one who is breaking the promise to get married! He did! I'm a law student, and there is no consensus amongst courts as to what to do when an engagement is broken off. Some jurisdictions say that no matter what, the man gets the ring back since he bought it. Others say the one who didn't break off the engagement, is the one who keeps the ring, since it was a gift conditioned on a marriage occurring. Other courts say it's an inter vivos gift made to the woman and doesn't have to be returned. I say do the research and find out what your jurisdiction says. If they say you can keep the ring, I say screw him and keep it/pawn it. Furthermore, I believe the Emily Post approach is if you are a girl who breaks off an engagement, you return the ring. If he breaks it off, you keep the ring. Why make his life any easier? Sell the damn thing and treat yourself to a vacation so you can forget that loser. With time, you'll see he did you a huge favor that he revealed his true nature now, instead of down the line. I wish you the best of luck. God bless.

I went through the same thing except I actually married him then he cheated on me, got someone pregnant and I finally left him. It is a very difficult thing to go through but be strong and most important KNOW you are worth so much more than that. Pawn the ring and never look back. You'll find happiness again :)

Ok. none of you mentioned how ridiculous it is that the guy wants to give the same ring to a new bride. WTF? that's messed up. If i was the guy, there would be no way i'd ask for the ring back after all i put my ex-fiance thru. screw it woman! just give that shit back! what a crappy fella.

uhm first of all learn to write correctly fuck how old are you how can it be that you cant even write a correct sentence. AND who cares man if he loves an ex go watch that movie "hes just not that into you "

You get to keep the ring. He called off the wedding, not you. There for you get to keep it. It's the law. Don't you just love legislation sometimes? Then you should pawn it and buy yourself something nice.

It's technically a gift, right? So, I say keep it. Get some money from and do something that makes YOU happy! (I know this post is old, I'm just going through random FMLs)
