Who Gets the Ring?

So… let me start this off by saying that I am not engaged, have not been engaged, and am not calling off an engagement. I just saw the headline on CNN (yes… CNN) and thought it was an interesting question.

Their take… well, it depends on where you live and the circumstances in which the ring was given. You can read all about it “Engagement’s Off”.

I’ve had a couple of friends who have been engaged a couple of times – and in most circumstances they kept the ring. In one case, not only did she keep the ring, she wore it on her right hand while she wore her current engagement ring on her left hand. I’m not sure what the point of that was, but it just seemed tacky to me. If you’re going to keep the ring, at least get the diamond re-set into a necklace or some other sort of ring. Or, do as one couple did, and sell the ring, and split the proceeds. If the groom gets the ring back, he should definitely not try to give it to the next woman. Nobody wants that kind of recycled ring. Its not a family heirloom. At that point, its just baggage.

    Dude – I definitely say sell the ring. . . it’s the only way to go.
