My ex-Step mother has my grandmother's (who has passed away) wedding ring. My Ex-Step mother had walked out on my dad after 16 years of marriage to be with another man and to enjoy her mid life crisis... I have just recently politely asked her for my grandma's ring back but she says when she passes I can have it.... I am not sure what to do now as I am heart broken and have a feeling she will hock the ring. I remember as a little girl always admiring my grandmother's ring and her telling me one day it would be mine. Grandma and Grandpa were married until death did them part. I feel that because my past step mother failed her vowes to my father she shouldn't be able to keep my grandma's ring....

That gift came with a promise to love honor and cherish her son until death do them part.... Guess I am just bitter and want more honor in our family heirlooms... A verbal promise/agreement means just as much to me as a piece of paper does. Guess I am just different.... Thank you for your imput though. I need to see another side other than my own thoughts. Serenity Prayer will get me over this heart ache.

I am talking to my dad and he is going to talk to her... but the ring itself was given to him to give to her by my grandma with the promise that she would love, honor and cherish him as he did her.... A family heirloom shouldn't be kept by someone who broke their vows and left not only her husband but her kids as well so she could drink and party and be free of responsibility.... She has already pawned my dads ring long ago who is to say she won't with this one...
