In The Video Above Dear Sybersue discusses how to deal with “the ring” situation after an engagement ends!
Do you keep the engagement ring out of spite because your fiance blindsided you with this breakup out of nowhere? Do you sell it? Do you tearfully give it back to your Ex-fiance? Angrily throw it back in his face?
Is it a really good thing to hold onto it? Why would you want to look at it and keep reminding yourself of the marriage that never took place?
If you believe in karma it may not be the best idea to keep the ring just to get back at your Ex for bailing on your partnership. Maybe the universe was looking out for you and you dodged 10-20 years of an unhappy relationship?
It is never easy when someone walks away from the future you had planned together and the heartbreak can last a long time. This is why it is important to remove the memories that cause the pain. This includes, photos, social media ties, (yes, that means not creeping him out on facebook) and the engagement ring.
When Would It Be OK to Keep the Ring?
- If you have been engaged for more than a few years. If you have been wearing this ring for a long time then it is really yours to keep or sell, depending on how the breakup takes place. If it is a mutual decision then you may be OK with wearing the ring on your other hand. You can always make a nice necklace or earrings out of it! wink wink
- Your Ex-fiance strongly expresses he doesn’t want the ring back!
- Your Ex cowardly disappears after breaking off the engagement and you are not in contact with him.
