In Wisconsin do I have to give the engagement ring back if my fiance broke it off?

Green Bay, WI |

His mother and sister have contacted me and not in a nice way to give the ring back. Legally do I have to give him the ring back? He is threatening to sue me for it.

Unfortunately, yes. Wisconsin has ruled that an engagement ring is a "conditional" gift with the condition being marriage. If the marriage does not occur, regardless of the reason, you are required to return it or pay him for the value. Sorry.
