So, when a conflicted keeper of a family heirloom decided to consult the moral compass of the internet otherwise known as Reddit's "Am I the As*hole" about whether or not she's wrong to refuse to pass it on, people were quick to help deem a verdict.
Me (21F) and my brother (25M) have agreed that my mom's engagement (6 women in my family wore it) ring would be mine until he finds a girl he really wants to propose to. I agreed.
Now, he has a girlfriend of 5 years, and told me that he is planning to propose and would like the ring back. I immediately told him no. And that's because as much his girl likes jewelry, she also "likes" to lose it.
The amount of jewelry she has lost is outstanding. I remember getting her very pretty earrings that I made myself and she lost it like after two days.
