I said “yes!!!” with no ring. Materialism is and always will be a thing. We all participate in some way. If I got huffy about every meme I saw that rubbed me the wrong way I would be huffy all day every day lol. Pat yourself on the back because you would have said “yes” if he proposed with that ring, then move on. No biggie.

I agree with you.

Have you read the bee? There are thousands of posts of women complaining their e-ring is too small. Its an epidemic.

I told my Fiance that I’d say yes to a ring pop because he waited so long (10 years). I have many rings I would have been happy to use as an e-ring. He ended up buying me one, and I’ll use one I already have as a band.

I totally agree. I still don’t understand why women who would say “no” to that won’t consider a more affordable option. My ring is 2.3 carats but it’s a sapphire. And my ring was so cheap I couldn’t saved up for it in high school! I don’t think there’s anything wrong with wanting a certain style or size, but you have to compromise.

nykkee :  “would you say yes if he proposed with this ring”

Of course I would, that ring is cute AF.

Also, you know, I love him and want to marry him. I don’t need a ring at all for that!

I really like that ring!  DH proposed with no ring and I said yes…we went the next weekend to pick it out together.

If you would consider not marrying someone because they bought you a ring you don’t like, then you’re not mature enough/in love enough to be married. If you don’t feel comfortable telling your partner that you have certain ring preferences, then you’re not communicating effectively and your relationship is in trouble. If your priorities are so out of order that you consider an engagement ring to be worth going broke over when your partner can’t afford it, then you’re not in a good headspace to be married. Marriage is about a partnership.

nykkee :  for the record I really like that ring, its cute and elegant unlike the ‘keeping up with the jones’ huge diamonds which to me just look superfical

my first engagement I had no ring, instead I gave him one of mine

second engagement (too the same guy again but a year after we originally broke up) was one he took off his finger and put on mine, it was a chunky biker style skull with red eyes (probably not ruby, maybe garnet or some other similar gem stone)

that didnt last long… he was a chronic cheater frown

a year later met my now fiance who ive been with nearly 10 years and my ring now is a vintage sapphire and like you only cost $200 – I agree im not comfortable wearing something super expensive and honestly I would be mad if my fiance spent loads since we are saving up for IVF which is FAR more important than worrying about having the biggest or most expensive ring

When I first saw this thread, I thought it was going to be about this meme:

Both are stupid. I would have said yes to any ring (or no ring) from my Fiance.
