Will Kardashian return her $2 million engagement ring to Kris Humphries? What about the money they earned from the wedding?

Let's look at the Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries 72 day marriage by the numbers. The wedding cost a reported $10 million (which they didn't pay for) and they earned $18 million from wedding sponsors and she sported a $2 million engagement ring. They won't have to give back any of the money that they earned from the wedding — but will Kim share any with Kris or give him back her $2 million ring?

In recent divorce filings, Kardashian indicated that unspecified jewelry that she received during their short relationship is to remain hers. TMZ reports that under California law, if Kris bought the ring for her and gave it to her, then it is hers to keep. However, there are rumors that Kim actually bought the ring herself at a huge discount.

If the groom did buy the ring, most women return it. Crystal Harris returned her engagement ring to Playboy's Hugh Hefner, for example.

What about the wedding gifts? No word from the Kardashians, but etiquette says she must return all the wedding gifts.

Their short 72-day marriage earned them around $250,000 per day, taking into consideration the money they made from their wedding, plus $1 million from People magazine for exclusive shots of their ceremony and reception. On the heels of this, many people are wondering if the marriage was a hoax from the beginning.

"Kim was looking for a husband and Kris was selected for her, amongst others," a source told Radar Online. "She wasn't really into him, but she hoped she would be able to develop some feelings. But it never happened."

If a ring is given to a woman as an engagement ring (no matter the value) then the woman is obligated to return the ring if she calls off the engagement. This is why as a guy you never present a ring to a woman for this purpose on birthdays or other holidays. Kim's mother has stated she should keep the ring because no one likes an Indian giver. So a guy gives a two million dollar ring and she files for divorce 72 days after the wedding vows. Wow the poor man spent $277,777.77 per day. That is some expensive high maintenance woman! Wait she legaly married and then called it about Indian giver....she is just using her body instead of expensive baubles.

Sadly, I get drawn into these "reality" stars lives, only because their lives are so different from my own "reality." After following the Kardashians, I am disappointed in myself for even being interested in such a fake, made for television circus, I mean family. Sad to say, I agree with MsKat, it's all for the money. I won't be following this family any longer, it's sick how much money is generated from this waste. I won't support it anymore. Chris, you can't say you didn't see this coming. Kim, if Chris bought the ring, give it back. If he didn't, shame on you both for lying.

Kim & her mother are probably (if they haven't already) setting up an EBAY account to sell off the ring & everything so's to make an even BIGGER HAUL! Who do they think they are kidding??? Saying that you Love for loves' sake, NOOOO you DO NOT!! You haven't got a clue! Anything and EVERYTHING you & your family does is strickly for the $$$$$$$$$ bankroll! SHAME ON YOU, KARDASHIANS!!!
