Question:

I would just like to know the brief halachos of owning the wedding ring I understand it has to belong to the chosson, What happens if his parents bought it for him does he need to pay them back, Is a maaseh kinyan on the ring not enough or do you need to actually pay for it and if you do then why? Thanks

Mazal Tov, on your upcoming Chasuna, may you be zoche to build a bayis ne’eman b’yisroel.

The choson does not have to pay them back, it is sufficient that his father gives him the ring as an irrevocable present. A maaseh kinyan is enough. It is sufficient for him to pick the ring up a tefach, so it will be with kinyan hagba’ah.

  1. A revocable present is sufficient?
    Perhaps “irrevocable” is what was meant?

    • You are right, that is what was originally written. For some reason it didn’t appear that way when it got online.
      Thank you for the correction!
