Engagement Off - Who Gets Ring?

Dear Dr. Dave and Dr. Dee,

I've lost about 20 pounds, which was my goal. But, my stomach area is still flabby. I do stomach crunches, so what more can I do?

Dear Dr. Dave and Dr. Dee,

My fiance broke off our engagement and we are having a discussion about the diamond ring that he gave me. He wants it back as it was quite expensive, but I told him that the girl gets to keep the ring, especially since he initiated the break up. Aren't I right?


Right about ring

Dear Right about ring,

While it is often assumed that the female keeps the engagement ring, it is not necessarily the case, and ex-fiances have taken such issues to court.

If you feel strongly about keeping the ring, it would be a good idea to consult with an attorney about your legal rights to the ring.

As far as etiquette, Emily Post ( advocates returning the ring regardless of the circumstances of the break up.

In addition, both parties should also return any gifts given to each other.
