    If a female breaks off an engagement stating she doesn't want to get married why should she keep it? If the man breaks it off then she should keep it. So only if the female breaks it off....:o)

    If he had broken it off, then she can keep it.. But she broke it off, therefore she should give it back. I mean, there's no telling how much the ring cost him. Not to mention a broken heart.(only an assumption on my part, idk the situation)

    HOWEVER! If he cheated on her, then she's got a good damn right to keep the ring. He gave his love up for her if he did that.

    OK. She should keep the ring becuase he should not be demanding it back. It's HER ring, he GAVE it to her as a gift for engagement. Your friend can do whatever the hell she wants with it. It's hers now. Maybe he wants it back so he can give it to some other girl? So what. Go out and buy a new one. If it wasn't that hard getting the first one... then it shouldn't be that hard getting a new one. ;) Thats all.

    If he is the one to break it off, you keep the ring, if you break it off, give it back, because the ring is there to signify unity....and if you are the one to break the proposed promise of unity...then the right thing to do is give it back so he could give it to someone else more deserving....if he breaks the proposed promise of unity...then f*ck him, he can go hide and f*ck himself.....LOL

    It depends on certain things. If it is given on Christmas, Birthdays, Anniversaries, or Valentine's Day it is a gift and can be kept. If it is given any other time it is a promise and should be returned. However if the ring is a family heirloom it should remain in the family of the ring. This may sound legal but I believe it is also moral. But if there is cheating involved then the cheater should forfeit all rights unless it is an heirloom.

    Hey, if you give the ring back, you may as well give back every present your other has given you before then too.

    It depends. If the engagement is broken because he left me for another woman, you'll bet I'll keep it and sell it on a pawn shop!

    But if it's my fault I'll give it back.

    Typically the man bought it as a commitment for the woman to follow through with the wedding. If the wedding is off, the ring is forfeit back to the man. Unless it's a family heirloom from the female's side, in which case it should revert to it's previous owner.

    It depends on who bought it/owned it in the first place, if it was an engagement ring that has been in the woman's family for generations then the woman should keep it, if the ring has been in the man's family for generations then the man should keep it, if the man bought it for his money then the man should keep it, if the woman bought it for her money then she should keep it, if they have a baby then they should give their baby the ring, if they have many children then the oldest should keep it until one of them gets married...

    When a lady accepts this ring she is making a promise to marry the person who has given it to her. If she is the one who breaks the engagement she should return the ring. If he is the one who breaks it off he's the one breaking the promise and it should be acceptable to keep the ring. He's the one who broke the promise he should just chalk the loss of the ring up to a lesson learned.

    If the women broke it off she owes the ring back. I saw this on one of the court shows.

    Legally an engagement ring is an 'gift in contemplation of marriage'.In other words if the marriage doesn't happen then the ring belongs to whoever bought it.

    well if the engagement is broken up for any reason, that ring will only remind you about that. So why the hell keep it?

    I think for every breakup there is a different answer! Did she break it off because of something he did (ie. cheating, abusive, jerk, ) if so keep it. But if she broke it off for her own reasons then she should give it back!
