Money Matters - Do I have to return the money..
Submitted by anonymous  Answered by Rav Yehonoson Hool
Question: For two months I shared a nice relationship with a friend, then out of the blue she became very distant for a reason unkown to me. During the time we were friends she paid for things for me- for example- lunch, coffees etc and refused payment. At this point because the friendship dimished to nothing I'm not sure if she laid out all that money out of good will. My question is do I need to pay her back for whatever she has laid out for me?
Answer: One who gives a gift when on good terms with the recipient cannot demand it back if subsequently he becomes his enemy. Even an ongoing financial
agreement, such as a real-estate rental, that was established when the landlord and the tenant were good friends cannot be cancelled by the landlord due to the tenant becoming unfriendly (Shulchan Aruch, Choshen
Mishpat, 312:9)
