Engagement Rings – Texas


As applied by Texas courts, the conditional-gift rule contains an element of fault.  Texas courts have held that the conditional-gift rule operates to require that the engagement ring be returned to the donor upon termination of the engagement, if the donee is at fault in terminating the engagement.[1]
