No, i know the question is no.
But anyways, here it is.
A little while ago, when me and my FH were packing for our move (moved to Switzerland) we were going through all his file cabients and decided what to throw out and what to keep. I came across acouple tiffany and louis vuitton reciepts. I only had time to look at one tiffany reciept but it was for a $3000 necklace (these reciepts are from previous relationships) but I never got any gifts from Tiffanys while we were dating (other than my ring, and I get that my ring cost more than all these gifts combined, [$47,500] but to be fair, he didn’t know he was going to spend this money on me till recently, and we’ve been dating for two years, same time frame he dated his previous girlfriend) and he wont even let me step into LV because he thinks spending $1500 on a purse is stupid.
But he didn’t find spending this money on his previous girlfriend stupid?
It’s 5:23am and I’m pretty sure I’m just over thinking everything ..

you’re the one he bought the E ring for, screw a 3000dollar necklace!! ask for the LV after your first baby as a push present, he won’t say no then!!!

She received a $3K necklace and you got a $47K ring. It’s a no brainer in my opinion. If he was saving for $47K ring do you blame him for not purchasing all the other gifts for you.

Haha, I like how you think 😉

@hiheel: But I don’t even know if he was saving up for me.
He cashed in some bonds and had ‘left over money’
whatever that means. He always points out (whenever I fight with him) that he had more money before he met me because he takes care of me and he didn’t have to with the other girls.
EXCEPT, he doesn’t let me work, and when we met I was in my first year of college and hadn’t had time for a job.
So it’s not my fault that he has to take ‘care’ of me
sorry for the rant..

“My fiance bought me a $47,500 ring and I’m upset that he bought his ex a $3,000 piece of jewelry before he met me.” …………
I will pretend to get over that statement. You can ask your fiancé why he bought LV bags for ex’s and not you when you’re married to him. Don’t ask him beforehand or your materialism might put him off.

@MrsBroccoli: it’s not materialism.
I never said I wanted a Louis Vuitton purse, now did I? He just thinks that all the female louis vuitton products are a waste of money (however, he just bought a suit there 😉 )
And I’m taking about this before we got engaged, not after the fact as he only got the ring 4 months ago.

@nikix: didn’t you just post a thread about seeing other e-rings as you look for your wedding band, and no longer being happy with the ring that your SO picked out?
Be happy with what you have, and who cares what gifts he gave to his ex’s in the past. I hope he never see’s these posts of yours, he may have second thoughts.
Who gets a $40, 000 dollar e-ring and complains about what he bought his ex girlfriends? He choose you to be his wife.
Learn to be happy with what you have, or you will never be happy.
Stuff is just stuff! They do not equal happiness!

What?! If I comment nothing good will come out of it, so I’m slowly stepping away.

That ring is worth more than my car.
If I had that much money in a ring, it wouldn’t matter what my husband bought anyone else at any time.

Yeah, I’m pretty much the unhappiest girl in the world.

@nikix: I think you’re overthinking this. A $47,000 ring?! Wow. Reading your last thread I guessed it was around $50K and this confirms it. You must have quite the lifestyle. Wouldn’t surprise me if everyone was jealous of YOU.
I am sure you get things she did not. You’re only hurting yourself by getting jealous. I’m not judging since I can be pretty irrational too… but trust me, you will feel a lot better when you let this go. Zero reason to be jealous.

@nikix: Cant tell if you are being serious? Why so unhappy?

Just read the “he won’t let me work” comment — could this be where your unhappiness stems from? Find something that makes you happy/takes up your time (paid or not) and DO it. He can’t force you to do anything. If he is seriously FORCING you, then don’t marry him or you’re in for a very unpleasant life.
