Some might say, “Girl, that boy put you through all that mess, and now you’re gonna turn around and give the ring back? Are you kidding me, you better pawn that shit.” Ciara made the classy decision to return her $500k engagement ring to Future, which a lot of women wouldn’t do. It’s easy to wonder why in the world she didn’t just keep the ring and kick his ass out. The thing is, Ciara had quite a few reasons to give the ring back to Future.
1. She takes the moral high ground. Like I said, a lot of women would pawn that ring, and screw the guy for cheating on her. Others would just refuse to return it, but probably never wear it again. By giving the ring back to Future, Ciara showed she doesn’t need to hang on to any of his “gifts”. If anything, what she did will probably make Future feel like a fool.
2. The ring will remind her of Future. Keeping an engagement ring after a break-up is a big no-no since it will always remind you of the person you loved. If Ciara kept the ring, every time she saw it would cause remind her of her cheating ex and the pain would seem fresh again.
3. The ring is a conditional gift. An engagement ring is a promise to marry someone, and it serves no other function. This means it’s only a gift if you’re going to get married. If you don’t get married, the ring loses its purpose. Ciara obviously knew this when she returned the ring to Future.
4. Avoiding a messy legal process. If Ciara held on to the ring and Future decided he wanted it back, they would need to call their lawyers and settle it in court. Future would likely have gotten the ring back and Ciara would be left with another reason to despise the man she once loved. But by giving it back, she avoided this completely.
So, Ciara was right to give Future back his ring. It must have stung, but she did the right thing. Now she’ll move on with her life and forget the lame-ass cheater for good.
