I’m going to sound like Kim Kardashain or some other crazy shallow princess but I have a boyfriend who I know is going to propose to me in the next three to five months.  I’ve always dreamed of a big and beautiful engagement ring.  I’ve seen my dream ring.  It costs about $10,000 dollars more than what I know my boyfriend plans to spend on it.

The perfect engagement ring means more to me than even the wedding.  I mean if you think about it . . . I’ll be wearing it for the rest of my life.

Would I be wrong to have one of my friends tell him that I really want the more expensive ring?

 

Thanks,

Denise

    Why not just take the ring that he gives you and get a bigger one later?

    Drum Roll, please….

    With your next husband.

    If you love him then the amount of the ring shouldn’t matter. You sound a wee bit shallow to me.

    @Dan- Assuming that my marriage won’t last is wrong. I love him more than anything in the world. I wouldn’t be wrong if I wanted an elaborate wedding, and that would cost more than the ring I want. You are a pig!

    What? Really? Your man probably works very hard at his job cooking onion rings at the fast food place. be happy he’s getting you a ring in the first place. I hope he does, but odds are he doesn’t work for the railroad.Asking for a ring that costs nearly half a years salary is not only irresponsible but selfish as well. I hope your marriage does last and that you two are happy forever. I just want you to understand that 50% of marriages today don”t last like they did in my day.

    Best O’ Luck to ya!

    He doesn’t make onion rings he sells insurance and does quite well.
    The payments on the ring I want won’t break him. Why is it wrong that I want to have the very best, and I want everyone to see how much I mean to him?

    Making him buy u a huge ring doesn’t show how much he loves u, it just means u know how to manipulate him and your marriage won’t last if that is how u start it off….let him buy u what he wants and be surprised when u get it, that’s love!

      Perfectly said. Some of the happiest and longest marriages I have seen started with a small engagement ring. And they still wear that small ring as a symbol of their LOVE!

    Exactly Melissa and Kris. Being that selfish before the marriage even starts doesn’t bode too well if you ask me an just screams spoiled brat. Be proud of him, stand up for him and cherish him and he’ll do the same.

    Personally I don’t believe in women choosing their own engagement ring. I always knew that my boyfriend and I would get married some day, but he completely SURPRISED me with a proposal and a modest ring. I didn’t pick it out. I didn’t need to because it is a symbol of his love for me, not a symbol of how much money he spent on me. We have been married almost 10 years now. The ring isn’t what is important. Your relationship is what is important. I’m sorry but you do sound materialistic and shallow and if the size of the rock on your finger is how you will show people what you mean to him, you really don’t understand what marriage is all about.

    There is no way in hell I would EVER spend that kind of money on an engagement ring! TWO words comes to mind reading this…GOLD DIGGER…it is not the size of the ring that matters it is how you feel about each other!

    i have to agree that you sound self centerd heck my ring was a total fake, i know how much my husband of 6 years loves me he inharted my stare sapphire from his mom and gave it to me i did not expect it
    it is not the size or how much it cost him i think you want the ring for a states symbol and maybe him to
    true love is caring about some one more than you care about yourself and you need to learn that
    i was hoping he would ask me to marry him in some big fancy way but i did not get what i wannted he ask me on a beach with on one around
    i wanted a big wedding i did not get it we got married at the end of our concrats in yellow stone
    so just cause you want something dose not mean you will get what you want

    Wow, really? Hope this poor guy runs like the wind!! If you are that greedy about a ring, then I pitty the man when it comes time to look at houses. If you expect him to spend more than he’s comfortable with on a ring he can expect the same out of you for everything else also!! GREEDY!!!

    I see nothing wrong with “wanting” the ring she wants.My suggestion would be to take him out looking at jewelry and show him the ring you want. Do not make him feel like he HAS got to buy you that ring, Just let him know that is the ring you like. If he is financially solvent enough, you never know. Just give him the chance to make the right choice for you. Either way, whether you get your dream ring or not, be thankful for the love in your life and the opportunity to share your life with him.
