Let me say right off the bat that giving a woman an engagement ring that you already gave to another woman is not a great move.

I have a hard time believing that any woman out there would be really psyched about that…and that brings us to today’s story!

A woman shared her story on Reddit’s “Am I the *sshole” page about an incident that set her off.

Here’s what she had to say.

AITA for not wanting a ring my fiancé already gave to another girl

“My now fiancé was engaged a couple years before we got together, and they broke up and she gave the ring back.

We’ve been together a few years and a few days ago, he proposed and I was super excited. The ring looked kinda familiar and when I asked him where it was from, he said it was the ring he gave to ex fiancé.

I immediately took it off and was like “I don’t want a ring you bought for someone else, it wasn’t meant for me.” He got upset and said it didn’t matter, because it’s not hers anymore it’s mine.

My family and friends are split in saying I’m the *sshole and I’m justified.

I don’t want him to spend a whole other thousand dollars on a ring for me, but I want a ring that was meant for me, not for someone else.


And the people of Reddit, as they like to do, weighed in with their thoughts.

This person got right to the point.

This Reddit user said that she knew her husband would never do something like that and she let that fact be known loud and clear.

It’s bad juju!

But this person came to the man’s defense and said he just made a mistake and that this incident is not worth breaking up over.

Another person made a great point: rings don’t have to be pricey, but they have to be personal.

And this person called the guy’s move “tacky as hell.”

But then another reader weighed in and said that the guy was not in the wrong and that both of them need to reevaluate the whole situation and not let a ring get in the way of their relationship.
