Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Good morning. I am Loren, a licensed attorney and I look forward to assisting you.
You wife has NO legal obligation to return anything given to her as a gift. Once a gift is given, assuming it is unconditional, it becomes the property of the recipient to do with as they please. The gift does not change to a loan simply because the donor changes their mind.
Your wife may keep the ring. It is her property.
If you have no further questions, and have not yet done so, please remember to leave a favorable rating (Excellent or Good) so that I am credited by JustAnswer for assisting you. A bonus is not required, but is always appreciated.
