@twitterpated0315:  Thank you!!!! It’s not a “rule”.  It’s a brilliant marketing ploy that millions of people have fallen for.

I’ve always heard it as 2-3 months, although recently people say 6 months…but it all started with the diamond industry so who knows?  I think 6 months is ridiculous unless you’re well off, I’d rather use that as a down payment on a house.

I also don’t agree with rules. Every couple has different priorities, standards, debts and so on. It’s such a personal, individual thing.

However, I see more people (in general, nobody specific) balk about how much was spent on a ring, yet people don’t think twice about buying a wedding dress for thousands of dollars or spending more than a new car on a a wedding/reception.

It’s all just so personal. 🙂
