A diamond engagement ring can be a symbol of love and devotion.  It can also be a potential problem in a bankruptcy proceeding.  Ever since the DeBeers Organization began an aggressive marketing campaign for diamonds during the depression years of the 1930’s, diamond rings have become common place as in engagement arrangements.  They can be valuable, and exemption laws often cover only limited amounts for jewelry.

Historically, an agreement to marry was a contract.  As a down payment on this contract, the parties were often allowed to have sexual relations.  Historically, when virginity was an important component of an agreement to marry, one party (typically a woman) was giving up something of value when she entered into an engagement…..an asset that could never be recovered.  A “breach of marital promise” arose in many states and was often memorialized in statute.  This was intended to protect women who gave up their virginity as part of the engagement when the partner failed to complete the marriage.

Just as the DeBeers company began its campaigns to market diamonds, state legislatures began to repeal the breach of marital promise legislation.  Hence, the diamond engagement ring began to be considered a “non-refundable deposit” from prospective grooms to their betrothed.

The Second Circuit issued its much anticipated decision in Marblegate Asset Management LLC v. Education Management Corp., holding that “Section 316(b) prohibits only non-consensual amendments to an indenture’s core payment terms.” At issue is whether the phrase “right . . . to receive payment” forecloses “more than formal amendments to payment terms that eliminate the right to sue for payment.” The Second Circuit held that it does not.

Since the inception of the TIA in 1939, most practitioners and courts have interpreted §316(b) as providing only limited protection to noteholders by prohibiting formal modifications of the payment terms or the right to sue. The traditional view, which remained largely unchanged for more than seven decades, is that §316(b) protects only a noteholder’s legal right to receive payment when due rather than any practical ability to receive it. By contrast, the Marblegate District Court decisions interpreted §316(b) as prohibiting amendments that impair noteholders’ practical ability to receive payment.[1][2]
