I picked out both my engagement ring and my promise ring. Why do I have them? He wanted to buy them for me. Did I pick out the best he could afford? I sure did. He wouldn’t have settled for less.

Pretty simple.

What’s an engagement trip? 

 

 

I think it isn’t fair to expect your SO to give you an engagement ring that is far beyond his budget.  I think it’s foolish to finance a ring.  If he is having to finance it, he is spending too much on it.  My ring is modest compared to others(1/2 carat) but I absolutely love it.  We picked it out together and I knew it was in his budget. 

 

I think as long as you are realistically living within your means, who cares?  This goes for anything in life though imo.

Because society expects them? That’s why it’s “important”…

These divisive posts are driving me nuts.

@kerpao:  its very important to me because he got on one knee and asked me to be his wife and put that engagement ring on my finger as an everyday reminder of how he wants to spend the rest of his life with me. i was not concerned with having an expensive ring i did not want him breaking the bank for my Ering and i did not pick it out. i didn’t even know he was going to propose until he did. but he got me a beautiful e ring 5/8 carat total weight and i love it. its very sentimental to me it definitely a love token. i never take it off.

i think it’s ok to want a ring you will be proud to wear, and as long as the guy is ok with spending however much it is, and doesn’t go into debt it’s ok to spend as much on a ring as you both feel comfortable with 🙂

i picked my ring, my dream ring, it was $8850, my Fiance paid 50% as a deposit, and then the rest when he picked it up. and yes i made sure it was ok with him to spend that much to get me that ring

Your “how important is a ring” question is different without the rant. I would be fine getting engaged with no ring and only wearing a wedding band. I would be fine having an inexpensive ring that was durable and nice-looking. I would probably not be fine wearing something I found hideous, for the rest of my life.

I could be wrong, but after reading this I think she’s just trying to say that if she loves her SO then she’d say yes even though he doesn’t go all out in buying her an expensive e-ring. Not everyone has enough money for something like this but the value of love is priceless.

I do love my e-ring though 🙂
