I am so angry on your behalf! It’s not the size of the ring that would bother me or the money spent, generally, but his reasoning for getting a 1/4 carat in the style you explicitly said you didn’t like. He’s not valuing your desires, and considers something important to you “unimportant.” He didn’t say “I’d rather take you ona fabulous honeymoon” or “I’d rather not spend this money on the engagement ring but on our lives together” or anything like that, he was condescending. How insulting! As if his golf clubs weren’t frivilous or luxury items! How dare he judge?
I’d tell him to take it back if it’s so unimportant and find myself single. You matter. You have value. Your desires are not silly or unimportant – they matter. What makes you happy matters. Stop punishing yourself for feeling disappointed that he devalued your thoughts and desires. You’re not disappointed in the ring choice itself, you’re disappointed in his lack of regard for your feelings, your opinions, and your worth. That’s not something stupid. You are too sweet, please stop punshing yourself for having an appropriate reaction to a disrespectful act!
