There was a recent poll conducted on TheKnot.com that shows women are willing, able, and happy to contribute to the purchase of their own engagement rings. Seriously, why is this a real trend now?
Maybe it’s just me but this doesn’t seem fair. Is the marriage about the love or about the ring? What does it really matter if your partner doesn’t pick out the ring you would have picked out for yourself? What do you think this trend says about how we view money and relationships?
The whole point of getting engaged is that your future partner took a huge step and got a ring that they wanted you to have. Should you really make them feel like their choice wasn’t good enough?
Would you ever consider splitting the cost of an engagement ring?? Do men feel pressure to go out and buy a crazy expensive ring they can’t afford?
