So went to go pick out or bands last week and I fell inlove with a micro pave set band. Unfortunately the price tag was quite high because it would have to be altered to fit my e ring. So I picked out a plain band that would still need to be altered but a fraction of the cost. I was fine with this as I know we are paying for the wedding and saving for a house. Fiance got so angry in the store I have never seen him so upset at anyone. He is super easy going not quick to anger. The whole drive home he said nothing…….so I ask him what’s up.?, after a while he turned to face me and I could see he was close to tears. He said “I am so angry because I can’t buy you the ring you deserve, the ring I want to buy you.”
It was so sweet it made me cry. I have such a sweet man. I told him I didn’t care because I was more inlove with him than the ring. And it did not matter what he put on my finger I am just so happy to be marrying him.

I hope he knows that his strong, loving desire to want to buy you the “ring you deserve” is more valuable than any ring he could purchase. It’s priceless.

Awwwww. Poor guy.
You guys seem to have your priorities in order and to be living within your means – that’s something to be proud of! He can always get you the other ring for an Anniversary, as a mark of how far you guys have come!

I had a similar situation with my husband, he was SO upset we couldnt afford my band. I assured him we would get it on our first anniversary, and we did. I think the thought of being able to upgrade it made him feel better. Good luck, and congrats on the upcoming wedding. 🙂

@drivingmissdaisy85: You have a keeper! I agree with abirdword:
, you have your priorities right. True love is worth so much more then having an expensive ring. And a pain band is more practical.

If it makes you (or him) feel any better, when I was conflicted between getting a plain(er) band or one with diamonds, my dad totally sold me on getting one without diamonds. For something you want to wear everyday for the rest of your life, the plain band is just more practical. You don’t have to worry as much about it getting damaged or anything. And, he also pointed out, your FH can always get you a blingy ring as an anniversary present. 🙂

@tallierand: +1! A plain band will be perfect! In todays creapy economy there are more important things to spend money on and when time are changed he always can get you a nice anniversary band!

@drivingmissdaisy85: That is honestly precious. Maybe it happened for a reason, so you could see how sweet a man you chose!
My guy was the same way. He was upset because he couldn’t get me a bigger ring! But, I’m just so happy to be engaged to him, that’s all that matters.

What a sweetheart! Tell him you love the band you picked, and if he’s still feeling rough about it later, he can get you a fantastic anniversary present 😉
