Let's be real here and I'll reiterate. The only reason to spend a lot on a ring is so the woman can tell her friends and family, which some will translate to the "omg he spent that, he must really love you!"
The key is to find someone who doesn't value what I just quoted, which is rare these days.
I don’t think so at all (your last sentence). Why is it so bad that my fiancé gets happy that I spent money on a ring so that she can flaunt it around (when asked..she wouldn’t do it unless asked about it)? My fiancé didn’t ask for an expensive ring, I got her one because I knew it would make her happy
I think ETB’s and OSH’s problem is they think it’s a waste to buy something expensive for their SO, whereas I want to becuase it makes her happy.
