my fiance got mad because I wouldn't go somewhere with him, he called me; we shouted at each other and he said we need to take the weekend off I said OK I won't call you this entire weekend late that night he says since you came to my home and took your clothes I consider this over and you should have left the ring.
Yes you have to return the ring. The law in NJ is clear on this point. The ring is a conditional gift. If the condition of marriage is not met, it must be returned. It does not matter whose “fault” the break up is. It must be returned.
Mr. Ricci is 100% correct. The ring is a gift in contemplation of marriage. If the marriage does not take place, the law provides that it must be returned.
You do need to give the ring back as the ring is a conditional promise with the condition being promise of marriage. Since the marriage is not happening, the ring goes back to him. I am sorry for your circumstances but it is often better that a break up happens at this stage, rather than down the line when you own a house and have kids. Best of luck to you.
