A marriage proposal is usually one of the happiest moments for a loved-up couple. However, this engagement turned sour when a disgruntled bride-to-be took to social media to complain about the “tiny” engagement ring that her partner have her when he popped the question.
The woman shared the photo of the delicate gold ring with a minuscule diamond on the internet. She then asked the world whether she was “shady” and “materialistic” for not wanting to wear the “little a**” band, as reported in news.com.au.
She explained that she and her partner had been together for “eight years and talking about getting married for almost three.”
“This the ring he said he saved up to buy me. Am I being shady or materialistic if I tell this mf I don’t want this little a** ring?.”
A screenshot of the post was shared on Reddit, and has since attracted thousands of comments.
What A Cheapie!
The woman received lots of support from like-minded readers, pretty much calling her fiancee cheap.
One said: “Honestly, I’m with her on this. You can get affordable rings that don’t look like they came out of the little dispenser machine next to the stickers and gumballs at Cici’s Pizza.
“Even with a small budget he could have gotten something that won’t immediately snap if it gets snagged, and I wouldn’t trust that jewel setting to last more than a week with everyday wear.”
Another added: “I’m not materialistic when it comes to things like this but if my man proposed with THAT I would be full-on insulted.
“He went out of his way to find the cheapest possible option; which to me says that he’s probably like that in every aspect of the relationship and will probably be like that in every aspect of their marriage.”
“It’s not about the price, it’s the appearance of the ring. I actually snorted at how tiny and pitiful it looks.”
Talk About It
Many people tried to be helpful and suggested what the woman could do:
“She should gently let him know this is not her style and go with him back to the jeweller and show him what she would like.”
Don’t Get Married
As always, there were also comments that declared that the poster was being nit-picky.
“Don’t marry this guy because if the size, shape colour or style of a ring is more important to you than your future husband’s feelings, what your idiot friends think, what complete strangers think or his ability to buy a big flashy rock? You’re going to make a s***** wife.”
“My personal opinion is that the ring isn’t as important as the one giving it to you.”
