Im sorry your going through this….but maybe this happend for a reason? its very important to take care of the IRS first…they are very scary group of people.

@strangewaysherewecome: Haha, the government DOESN’T have enough money!


But OP, that’s not your problem, and kudos for wanting to check it over and make sure it’s legit. There are a lot of scammers out there.

Looks like you have three options at this point: 1. Wait, 2. settle for a much smaller diamond and upgrade later, or 3. Consider moissanite/colored gemstone/white sapphire/CZ. Moissanite has a lot of the properties that make diamonds desirable for long-term wear, and they are really pretty. Might be something to consider if you really want to be married soon more than you want your dream ring.

here’s an idea– what if he proposes with a simple ring (which can later be your wedding band) and then you can get the engagement ring later?

@wishingonadream04: I know the IRS thing sounds scary, but you can setup payment plans with them, and pay as little as $25 a month. Just an option to think about, if your guy doesn’t have the funds to take care of it right away.

Awww, I’m sorry. It’s like that movie UP. It describes Darling Husband and I to a tee. Something else always comes up. Or wasn’t it John Lennon that said “Life is what happens when you are making other plans?”

Keep your chin up. the good $500, not $5000 that he owes!
