When I get divorced, do I get to keep my wedding ring? In the alternative, if I get divorced, can I get the wedding ring back from my spouse?
A frequently asked question that is often raised by clients in the dissolution process is whether I can either keep my wedding ring or get the wedding ring back from my spouse. The answer is quite simple, if a wedding ring is given to fiancée and the marriage is carried out, the ring is then the separate property of the spouse and they are free to do with it as they wish (sell it, gift it etc.). However, if the marriage is not carried out (license/ceremony etc.), then the ring does not become the separate property of the other spouse and may be requested back upon the termination of the relationship.
