A grieving woman refuses to return her late wife's ring. 💍

A woman is caught in the middle of a family feud after refusing to return a ring inherited from her late wife's grandmother. The ring had been in the family for generations and was intended for the first grandchild to get engaged. The woman's late wife proposed to her with the ring and it has since become her most precious possession. Her brother-in-law now wants to use the ring to propose to his girlfriend causing a rift in the family. The woman has refused to give the ring back, causing her in-laws to call her an AH. The situation has turned nasty with hurtful comments about the grandmother's views on same-sex couples being thrown around. The woman is distraught and feels like the only piece she has left of her broken heart is being taken away. Can this feud be resolved without tearing the family apart?

Keeping late wife's ring with family's support. NTA. 🙏💍
