We broke up, but I'm keeping the engagement ring...

Breaking off an engagement is incredibly emotional and can be truly devastating, but it's never as easy as just dealing with feelings. There is some admin involved...

But you do have one possibly major issue on your hands, pun intended: the engagement ring...

Today on #KeepOrCut, Yolande* desperately needed some advice on such a conundrum:

"My fiancé and I were engaged for two years and planning to get married in June next year.
