@colorofmyheart:  If he were smart he would walk away now before being tied to that for the rest of his life.  It sounds like he has a lifetime of being a disappointment to her ahead of him.

@colorofmyheart:  Take heart hon, it was probably a simulant and not a real diamond! (Lots of women have them, look at this site alone..its not uncommon) She was likely just posing for facebook…

I wouldn’t respond or give her post any attention. She sounds more attention seeking than anything.

Wow… ridiculous.

Especially posting it on a public forum… wtf. Some people have no sense whatsoever.

It’s stories like these that give us ladies who want a say in choosing a ring a bad name lol. I am pretty sure 99% of people would not dare to do what she did. Yikes.

1.5 carats is a great size and it sounds like a beautiful ring. There’s really no excuse for her behavior IMO. I wouldn’t blame him if he decided to find a more grateful girl to spend the rest of his life with.

You can’t do much about people like that but shake your head and feel sorry for them. When nothing is good enough to make you happy, well, you’re not going to be very happy.

@colorofmyheart:  A lot of folks want to upgrade rings. I feel that they have lost the meaning and intention behind the gift that was given to them – a man who they love (apparently) wants to share his life with them. Doesn’t that trump a ring? Don’t folks know how to graciously accept a gift? I would have married my FI an onion ring (and then promptly ate it) so I really don’t see what all the fuss is about. Yes, it’s a symbol. But the meaning behind the friggen symbol is what is supposed to be important.

Sorry. Upgrade folks make me crazy. I never comment on those threads for that reason, but this one is more up my alley 😛

I think and hope that is an isolated incident! I’ve never heard of anything like that!

People’s sense of entitlement is just disgusting. That man is an absolute spineless idiot if he actually stays with that bag. But I’ve known people that have pulled that same card. My ex from college started dating a REAL charmer (we dubbed her Dragon Woman) and she said she’d refuse his proposal with anything less than one carat. She told him she WOULD be taking the diamond to a jewelry store to get tested for exact carat size. If it tested .96 .99 etc. it would be returned to him. Well she did get her 1.0+ carat stone and got him tied down and married within five months. I’m pretty sure I saw his balls hanging on their Christmas tree on Facebook last December.

I suppose whatever ring or stone someone wants/demands is between them and their fiancee, but publicly shaming the person I wanted to marry? Over anything? I wouldn’t do that, nor would I ever marry someone who would do that to me (again, over anything).
