    Wow- she seems like a ungrateful brat and imo he is clueless for sticking around. 

    Darling Husband proposed to me with what a lot of women would consider a small ring (0.13ctw maybe?  Can’t remember now), and I wouldn’t trade it for anything. Hell, he could have proposed with no ring at all and I still would have been over the moon. At the end of the day it’s a teeny tiny token of something far bigger

    Just wondering, did the girl on the show mention anything about a twin flame?

    MxChinca: I would never say no but I know someone who pretty much said, “No thanks, try again”. Apparently she felt the centre diamond was too small and made him take it back and buy a bigger one. Meh, if he was okay with it then whatever but they made it out to seem like she had no idea and the whole proposal was a big surprise. We all kept our mouths shut because nobody wanted to ruin the surprise for her and were all so excited and happy for them after it happened. We are still excited and happy for them but come on man, why lie? It was kind of irritating that we helped out with the proposal “behind the scenes” and snuck around getting sh*t done when she already knew before even we did!!

    MxChinca:  I watched this episode the other day and literally said “what the f*ck” outloud at the time. I imagine my FI’s response would have been something along the lines of “well this is the only ring you’re getting from me. You want a bigger diamond, go buy your own ring..” if I had done that to him. It was completely emasculating of her to do that to him, but I guess he also put up with her for another 15yrs, so perhaps he’s just as dumb.

    I wouldn’t say no but I’d definitely upgrade as soon as possible.

    I used to joke to my Fiance that if a guy proposed to me with a ring that didn’t have sapphires in it that I’d say no, not because of the ring but because the guy clearly didn’t know me well enough. All my friends laughed and asked me if I would have said no to my Fiance if he hadn’t got it ‘right’. I never would have in a million years. I might have razzed him a little bit later on but I never would have said no about anything to do with the ring!!

    Honestly I think its all crap and scripted for TV, just so it causes some drama on the show. 

    Drama=viewers

    I think it depends on the situation, for example I went shopping for rings with my Fiance, I showed him pictures of what I liked (Princess halo) so if for example instead of the rings he knows I would like he chose a tiny diamond I would say no as he knew I wouldn’t like it. 

    Now if I never uttered a single word to Fiance about what I liked and he chose something small I would say yes as he put thought into it.

    I’m all for liking your ring but, not only does the girl sound like a brat.. She’s delusional.

    If he has to save for 15 years for something.. They can’t afford it. They’ll be in debt forever if she continues acting so entitled and demanding.

    She missed out on 15 great years of marriage over the size of the stone…very sad. Not to mention completely shallow!  I have no idea why he stayed with her – I know my hubby’s family would have been livid and told him to leave me if I had done that.  My first engagement ring had a 0.36 ct diamond and I was just so happy to have it because I loved this man so much for wanting to marry me and on top of that, he got me a ring!  A few years after we were married, he upgraded my ring to a 1.03 ct diamond. But I wouldn’t have cared if he didn’t. When it comes to love, size does not matter!!

    2XMOB:  What a sweet story! Do you have a picture of the ring? Do you still wear it?

    Im confused what did she miss out on if they in fact stayed together those 15 years?
