iVillage: Breaking Off Your Engagement: The Rules

7 of 11

Return the Ring

Guys pony up an average of $5,130 for the engagement ring, according to a survey by The Knot and So unless it’s a family heirloom, or you chipped in to buy it, you’re honor-bound --in some states legally obligated -- to give the ring back. “Some women feel very strongly that they’re owed that ring,” says Post. “But the ring represents a promise to marry and if you’re not going to get married, then you shouldn’t have that ring. It’s not a reward for putting up with bad behavior or dealing with a rough situation. It’s just going to be a reminder of a relationship you want to move on from.”
