The Wedding Ring ?
Q: Is the wedding ring considered part of the assets when getting a divorce?
A:When we separated, the hardest thing I had to do was ask my ex to return her ring to me -- which had been my mother's. My parents were deceased. She said, "Of course," and then quickly put it in my hand, as if glad to be relieved of its burden. Usually, its the engagement ring which has great value, and that's commonly a gift B4 marriage & separate property. If there are two rings fairly close in value, I suspect that in most cases, both parties just keep theirs and consider it even. But if not, or if there's only one ring -- "to bind them all" -- there's probably a caselaw that says if they or it is community property or not. [R] I don't even like thinking about the rings she (#1) walked away with... around a year prior to her questioning my love for here I gave her a ring worth twice what her engagement ring and band were worth. It took me over a year of sacrifices and Chinese book work to hide the money I needed to pay for that ring. She bitched that I always got the best toys (PC's) yet when she walked out of my life she took the equivalent of about 5 high end PC's with her around her fingers. That is creepy. Even what Barbara was talking about is creepy, re-gifting heirloom gifts to a new spouse after a former was already given them. But worse with a wedding ring/engagement ring. If I give mine to anyone it will be my daughter, because I wouldn't be comfortable giving it to my son knowing his bride might decide to keep it (I know of two instances where family heirlooms were lost in this way) if the engagement/marriage didn't last. I know that sounds pessimistic (and perhaps materialistic, but my ring is very special to me), but I can't deny the possibility and it makes me uncomforable. I gave my ex back my wedding band, and I tried to give him the engagement ring, but he said since he got specifically the one I asked for, he wanted me to keep it. I have, but I'm not sure what to do with it. I'm thinking about either keeping it to give to my daughter or trading up for a different piece of jewelry for her.
