After the (not so shocking) news that Kim Kardashian has filed for divorce from her husband of 72 days, Kris Humphries, I thought I wouldn’t bore you with every single little detail about the events but I can’t ignore them completely either (although we are more about happy wedding related news than the sad here at Bridalwave).
Due to ‘irreconcilable differences’ and despite Kris putting a $2 million diamond engagement ring on her finger, Kim has decided to become a single lady once more – and she’s keeping the ring! As we understand, Kris was hoping to get the 20.5 carat diamond ring back from his soon to be ex wife, but looks like Kim seemingly has other plans.
While appearing on Good Morning America, Kim’s mother Kris Jenner said: “It’s a gift – you keep a gift’. Is this a wedding no-no?
Sure we get that presenting someone with an engagement ring is like a present, but in reality it is more of a symbol of your love and commitment to the other person. If this ends , before or after saying ‘I do’, surely the commitment has been broken and the ring should be returned to whoever purchased it? Also, would you want to keep an engagement ring that your ex-fiance/husband gave you? It’s not like you could – or even would – wear it when going out. Then again, it might be completely different story when the ring is worth $2 million…
