Can You Keep That Engagement Ring?

In the case of Campbell v. Tang, No. 1006 EDA 2022 (Pa. Super. July 13, 2023 King, J., Sullivan, J., and Stevens, P.J.E.) (Op. by Sullivan, J.), the Pennsylvania Superior Court ruled that a party who broke off a wedding engagement was not required to return engagement jewelry because the party who had proposed marriage was still in a valid marriage at all times during the parties’ dating relationship and engagement.

The court stated that, under these facts, the wedding engagement at issue was void ab initio, thereby rending the gift an unconditional gift.
