I want the wedding ring, can I keep it?

Wedding rings are often an area of dispute in divorce cases. And the reason for that is most engagement rings are very expensive. And in Texas, the applicable law is called the conditional gift rule. If you are married, that ring was usually given to you during the engagement period. And if the condition, that being the wedding happened, then that wedding ring would be yours. So if you are the female receiving the engagement ring that’s very expensive, and you happen to now be married, well, that engagement ring would be awarded to you as your separate property in the divorce case.
