I was reading this article on yahoo and literally felt sick to my stomach: http://news.yahoo.com/nicki-minaj-says-shell-get-three-diamond-rings-220202088.html
Are there women out there that really require such an enourmous (or in Nikki’s case multiple!) rocks to marry a man???? Makes me feel horrible about even wanting a 1 ct solitaire.
Why is it that now a days we are all (generally speaking) wanting so much?? my moms ring was a the size of a grain of salt and my aunt (whom im very close with) had a 0.3 ct solitaire (no sides stones or anything) and they were are perfectly happy with it. I have a one friend who told her bf she wont accept anything but a princess halo pave ring and another friend who says the ring she wants is $15,000.
This just makes me feel terrible for the men out there. And im NOT MOCKING anyone who has a big ring, if you or your men can afford it then thats great! I am referring to women who DEMAND….anyone out there agree? disagree??

Tabrett Maria: I 100% agree. People that demand a certain style and say no to a proposal because it’s not what they demand make me so mad

slinktobee: Its just sad….I love my bf dearly and he flat out said I can choose whatever I want, but I was conscious of his finacial situation and said that i’d be perfectly happy with a solitaire with a 1 ct center stone…which even now i’m feeling bad about that too…I was previously engaged to another man (thank god it didnt work out) who had gotten me a yellow gold 0.73ct solitaire and I still loved it to pieces…

I thought that this thread would be about something totally different! LOL I was going to respond, “sometimes, but usually it’s just motion of the ocean…”
But yeah, I think it’s ridiculous that some women demand this! I just DEMANDED that we get married!

Not a fan of her ring. At some point this massive carats just look cheap and gaudy, I don’t care how real or how expensive they are.

She didn’t demand or expect the rings. He said he wanted to give them to her. I don’t see anything wrong with it especially when that is their lifestyle.

Tabrett Maria: This attitude of entitlement irks me more than I care to admit. It’s like the pic floating around Facebook of “If a man proposed to you with this ring (insert picture of small diamond ring) would you say yes?” and people commenting saying they’d reject the proposal “because he obviously doesn’t care much about you.” Like, really? The man is offering you his LIFE, and you care about a rock? But then again, there’s an awful lot of very materialistic women out there, who would agree to maryy ANY man that proposed with a huge, beautiful ring, even if they didn’t love him.
I am of the opinion that the love is what counts, not the 4C’s.
That being said, I may be crazy, and I know I’m in the minority here, but when my Boyfriend or Best Friend and I began discussing engagements and rings, he told me how much he wants to spend on a ring, and I find it to be an atrociously large amount. His reasoning is that he thinks I deserve the world, and wants to buy me something “to show how much I love you”, in his words. I wouldn’t feel comfortable walking around with a ring worth 5 figures on my hand, so we’ve argued about it a few times. I am trying to get him to buy something smaller, more “me,” and save the excess money for our wedding or honeymoon.

Tabrett Maria: Makes me sad when you hear of women more concerned with the ring than the man. For me I am not a huge fan of the look of a solitaire ring on me that is a really small diamond. That being said…I would be more than happy with a plain band or a band with smaller diamonds around it as opposed to the traditional solitaire engagement ring.

beeautifulb: The motion in the ocean cannot compensate for an extremely small and skinny penis that will slip out if you move.LOL
Sorry to hijack your thread OP…Please,carry on.
By the way, I agree with you (about the RINGS).

I had a friend that insisted she would only say yes if the ring was worth at least $30k. I was a bit flabbergasted, especially when she told me her MOTHER had given her that advice.

I think we as a society have developed this notion that bigger is better and to want more than what the other person has. That thought process is absolutely absurd. In thinking that way, we lose sight of what truly matters and that is the commitment and love to share your life with your soulmate. I think so many people need to take a step back and look at the bigger picture. Honesty, love and commitment fuel a great marriage…not the size of the ring on your finger.
