Wedding Called Off? She Can’t Legally Keep the Ring.

Things didn’t work out? That’s probably for the best. There are plenty of other fish in the sea, buddy. Take small comfort in knowing that you’re gonna get a payday when you return that ring.
Assuming things are ice-cold between bride and groom and she doesn’t want to acquiesce, know that the receipt of an engagement ring is technically a contractual obligation to marry a person. If no marriage takes place, the contract is void and the ring must be returned. You can sue to get it back. Romantic, isn’t it?
