visitor:  Pitch in the rest of money he isn’t willing to spend to get the ring you want. Boom. Problem solved.

If you are a gold digger this is no way to go about it. Marry him first and then reveal your true motives.

Honestly, ive never been attracted to stingy men. If my boyfriend had money that he could put toward a ring but refused, I would feel very embarrassed and hurt. This is the beginning of your life together and he is setting a precedent that you dreams aren’t important to him. there is nothing absurd about wanting at least a 1 carat if you know it’s financially feasible. 


We we are on the wedding bee RING board, and I find it interesting that so many women aren’t supporting OP for getting her feelings hurt. If you are on this board, jewelry is important to you. It would be a different story if he couldn’t afford it, but it sounds like he can.

He said that with time he could only afford .50 ct, so are you saying you dont believe him? Maybe it really is all he can afford. Maybe all his houses are income properties that are about to go belly up and he really cannot afford what you are “requiring”.

If he is very wealthy then I agree that he should be able to afford a least a ct, but the way your going about insisting on it, makes you look pretty bad, sorry ๐Ÿ™
