Honestly, I am paying for my own ring, BUT – we share finances and he covers my slack. So essentially, we are both paying for it. 😀
But I get paid through paypal and use it for the cost of the ring.
But I am already married, and just wanted something else.

We didn’t because my Fiance was adamant on paying for it, but I would happily have paid and told him so. I am buying the wedding rings though and most likely paying for most of the wedding as I earn significantly more.

I feel like women get the short end of the stick with a lot of things in life (ie. giving birth, lower wages, expectations to do most of the cooking+cleaning, etc) so I am 1000% for the man paying for the engagement ring by himself! Sometimes women need to just sit back and demand a little pampering too, we deserve it.

Nope. Not splitting. If you’ve never been married before you won’t fully understand why but by Year 5 or so you will not feel one bit badly about whatever he spent on it – be it $5k or $50k. Believe me, you earn it and you’re worth it.

I could not justify him having to pay for my ring by himself… Our finances are combined and I make more money than him. If he had to pay by himself he would then have less money for our mutual projects. It didn’t make any sense to me.
He proposed with a ring pop, then we set a budget, went shopping, chose together the ring we both love and both it with the money from our joint account. We did the same for our wedding bands and we accounted the cost of all 3 rings to our whole wedding budget.

no But I would have if I really wanted something super specific and expensive.

He bought me an eternity band and we will be jointly paying for an engagement ring.

He bought my engagment ring by himself, but I bought both of our wedding bands. The band I wanted to match my ring was pretty expensive considering how much he’d already paid, so I didn’t have a problem paying for both bands.

I tried soooo hard to pay part of or half of my engagement ring because I wanted something so expensive….he refused and paid for it all.

but there’s also a difference between deserving something (we ladies all
deserve nice things!), and wanting to help out your partner 🙂

No my husband paid for my engagement and wedding band and will pay for the honeymoon. I am covering everything else. So it comes out pretty even 🙂

- Wedding: September 2017 - Red Rock Canyon, Las Vegas, NV
We had planned to but in the end he covered the full thing and I agreed to cover some of our other necessities (kids summer clothes, my dress and some DIY stuff for the wedding).

When we went ring gazing I found a ring I like it came in multiple sizes I chose a smaller one he chose the next size up, it was put in layaway and he made payments and I also made payments, our money goes in the same account so I didn’t really care WHO paid for it I also had taken some money out of my savings bond to put towards it. He made the final payment though.
