People get married because they are in love and want to spend the rest of their lives together. For these happy couples, money might be important to live a comfortable life but it is not a requirement to live a happy life!
But a woman recently went viral after complaining over the cheap’ engagement ring worth $150 she received from her boyfriend. The woman said “yes” and was happy about the proposal at first, saying that she does love her guy and had always wanted to marry him.
Yet after he proposed and she learned that the ring was ‘just’ worth $150, she had second thoughts. The engaged woman said that she wasn’t really expecting a very expensive ring. But believes that because the engagement ring is a supposed to be a “symbol of love”, she was disappointed that the ring is ‘cheap’.
“But I really don’t think I’m out of line for thinking of it as a long term investment piece given the amount of wear it will see and the sentimentality behind it. Surely it is worth more than a gaming console?!” the woman complained.
She explained that her fiancé always had access to her jewelry and other personal belongings so she expected him to know her style. They had discussed about engagement rings in the past and what style she wanted but they did not talk about price.
The woman felt shocked, however, that he would choose such a ‘cheap piece’, considering that he had given her more expensive stuff in the past. She believes now that he is seeing another girl behind her back and had only used the proposal to make her feel that his love for her is really just shallow and ‘cheap’.
She thinks he is cheating on her with a younger woman because he only bought a ‘cheap’ engagement ring yet wears expensive watches!
But netizens slammed the woman, saying that she is the woman who is being cheap about the issue. The guy would surely not propose unless he wanted to spend the rest of his life with her! While the ring might be cheap for her, surely the guy had worked hard to save for that one.
“He has apparently been having an affair … with a ‘younger model’ that he’s ‘earned’ but knew that breaking things off when everyone loved me so much would ‘hurt his optics’ so he had to make it my fault,” the woman later explained.
Whether the affair is true or not, netizens believe that it was a good thing the two broke up. They certainly do not deserve each other – him for allegedly cheating on her and her for gauging his love by the price of his engagement ring! Tsk. Tsk.
