We have all learned from People’s Court, Judge Judy and our very own Gary Himmel that an engagement ring is a promise of marriage and if the wedding doesn’t go down the ring goes back to the brother that got down on one knee.  But what happens when the fiance’ paid for half of the ring?  Does she get to keep it?

A not scorned but realist, ex-fiance’, reached out to Sam Sylk, radio host of The Sam Sylk Show on 93.1 WZAK, during his Reality Hour segment by dropping a letter in his Facebook Message box to ask his advice on dealing with her broken engagement and him wanting back the ring she paid half for and picked out.

Take a look below if Sam Sylk recommended a good pawn shop or lawyer below

Dear Sam

My fiance’ and I recently broke up. Now he wants the ring back. I know that a ring is a promise to marriage and if it doesn’t work out you are supposed to give it back. However we were living together and splitting the bills so I technically paid for half of my ring. I picked it out, why would he even want it back. Shouldn’t I be able to keep it?
