Question asked on June 12, 2021
Q: We have been married for 5 years. I would also like info about marriage termination agreements. Husband is not to be trifled with intellectually on the agreement.
A: Your discussion is a bit vague on the details, but the law on the subject is that in the absence of an agreement to the contrary, an engagement ring is a conditional gift, completed upon marriage, and is the separate property of the recipient upon marriage. For a complete discussion of the issue, see the article posted here.
For information about separation and property settlement agreements, see the discussion and information posted here. Really, you need a consultation with a family law specialist well-versed in these topics.
