The proposal, planning a wedding… and everything that goes with it is a very exciting time fo people!
Oh, and the honey moon!
Marriage is about spending the rest of our lives with the person we love but that doesn’t stop people from getting too carried away with this and worrying about unnecessary things.
Things like.. the ring..
This lady didn’t like the engagement ring her fiancé bought her so took to publicly call him out about it rather than tell him personally. Ouch.
The user posted a thread of how disappointed she was.
“DP (dear partner) proposed and presented me with the ring he’d chosen – a diamond solitaire in white gold. I was so happy and excited to accept but was disappointed when I first saw the ring. The first word that entered my head was ‘small’.
“There’s nothing to dislike about the type of ring per se, as a diamond solitaire would have been my choice, but it’s the whole thing – the colour of the gold, the setting, the small stone and relatively chunky shoulders.
“His salary is nearing a six-figure sum and he’s usually very generous. Having seen the receipt I know he paid £1,300 ($1800) for it – which is a lot less than I would have imagined he would have spent on such a significant piece of jewelry.
“He’ll be more disappointed in me for making a fuss over it when, in his eyes, it fits and there’s nothing actually wrong with it rather than being disappointed that I’m not truly happy with it. Someone at work apparently told him that ‘if she makes it all about the ring, then she’s not the girl for you’
“Ideally I would have loved for us to have chosen a ring together and made a special day finding one we both liked. As it’s something I’ll be wearing every day and is such a special piece of jewellery I wanted to really love it and I just don’t.
“Has anyone else been in this situation? What did you do?”
People aren’t exactly on her side.. one said:
“Talk about being ungrateful.”
“I think you sound grabby. Why is it about the size of the diamond? He’s making a commitment to you. It doesn’t have to be about money or ‘flashiness.'”
Some offered support, saying:
“There’s no way on Earth I’d allow someone else [to] choose a piece of jewellery for me that I’d potentially be wearing for decades. I wouldn’t even let my partner choose this year’s winter coat.”
Do you agree with this?
