My friend, who is not even dating anyone just had a status on facebook that said “anything under 2 carats is uncivilized”… what does that even mean? I think its rude cuz I love my ring but its not 2 carats. I think people get really worked up about the size of the ring, as if that indicates how much he loves you, or like you’re of a higher class because he spent more money. Why did society do that to these women? Lol, tragic.

Hmm, she probably has no idea how much 2 carats actually costs. That’s sad.

she sounds like the jealous type! but perhaps it’s a quote from somewhere and she thought it was funny? just to give her the benefit of the doubt… but yeah, it’s a pretty obnoxious thing to say in my opinion. she sounds suspiciously like a girl i know… always trying to minimize other people’s lives so she can feel good about hers…

And even if she does know how much it costs…she probably doesn’t know what it’s really worth…like a down payment on a house or a new car!

Right? I’m sure she wasn’t trying to be blatantly rude but hello, be cognizant of others dummy, haha.

Well, everyone has a right to their opinion. Hopefully she finds a man who agrees with her.

Even if it was inadvertent, it was a pretty obnoxious thing to say! I’m so much happier with a ring we could afford, that has a beautiful cut and colour, that looks good on my hand and doesn’t interfere with my lifestyle.

Unbeliavle! Some people are just rude!
And it doesn’t matter what your ring is – be it .5 carats or 500 caras- people should not judge! It’s so lame.

oh dear… i don’t think she intended to be rude to you, although i’d be a little shocked at such a statement too.
maybe she’s reading/watching too many chick novels/films and she’s living in doo-doo land!

My (single) friend had a status up the other day that said “The rate of marriages that end in divorce just went up to 60% hahahahahahahahaha” I didn’t say anything to her, but it really bothered me. It must have bothered other people too, because she put up a status shortly after that said, “I apologize for my last status update.” I was not amused.

When I got engaged I met a friend of my fiance’s. His wife actually stuck her finger out next to my finger and tried to guess the carats of my ring based on their comparative sizes.

could that be a reason why she doesn’t have a 2 carat rock yet?

rude. but not the worst I’ve seen posted on Facebook lol Someone I know wrote as her status
“Happy couples still never cease to make me want to vomit.”
I was kind of offended even though it wasn’t directed at me.

i don’t know the girl, but it sounds kind of joke-y to me… i feel like i would post that in quotation marks if i overheard someone say it, but i think that my friends would know that i didn’t mean it, since i post a lot of quotations. maybe give her the benefit of the doubt.
