I would yes. In some states you have to even if you dont want to. It all depends on who did the breaking up.

yup.  i always remembered being like 9 years old when my cousin got engaged to his 18 year old gf.  he did this big romantic proposal at the airport, his parents got it on camera.  anyway, a few months later, she broke it off, and then the next time i saw my cousin he said to me “remember if you ever break off an engagement – give the ring back!!!”  guess his Fiance did not and he had to ask for it!

I ended it with my ex Fiance and didn’t give the ring back… but he was the reason for the breakup =(

I don’t think I’d ever end an engagement but if for some reason I had to I guess I would give it back unless they caused it.

I think I read that legally, the ring is his if an engagement is broken off, no matter who does the breaking up or what the reasoning was (ie: cheating, etc.). It has something to do with a broken contract. I think once you are married, though, the ring is the woman’s to keep.

I’d give it back. What am I going to do with such an expensive token of a failed relationship? I wouldn’t give my birthday present ring back, because that was truly a gift, but an engagement ring is a promise (or even contract like someone else said) that the relationship will progress into marriage. So if the promise was broken, I wouldn’t be able to keep the ring. Sentimentality aside, I know how much he paid for this and it’d be like serious robbery to keep it.

I just broke off my engagement but I did not give back the ring. He told me he wanted me to keep it, so I did.

I broke up with my first fiance and I did give the ring back. He was a great guy but I felt I had grown apart from him. Not only did I give back the ring but I let him keep the apartment we were renting together and almost all of our furniture; he worked 80-100 hours a week and didn’t have the time to search for a new place or buy furniture. Even if it had been his fault, I would have given him the ring back but I probably wouldn’t have been so generous about the other stuff.
