Woman Humiliates Her Fiancé After Finding Out How Much Her Ring Cost

Before popping the big question, a man first needs to ask himself how much is he willing to spend on the engagement and wedding rings. And while some think proposals shouldn’t be about the expensive jewelry, others claim the wedding ring cost should amount to between one and three-months salary. Recently, one woman who probably agrees with the latter has decided to humiliate her fiancé online after he disappointed her with a too small of a diamond and wedding ring price.

In an anonymous post on MumsNet, she ranted about the $1,674 cheap wedding ring as if it was a plastic toy. However, the majority of MumsNet readers condemned the woman for her materialism, saying the guy that chose to spend the rest of his life with her should seriously rethink his options after this humiliating story. Scroll down to check out her message and tell us your thoughts in the comments. (Cover image: Courtney Barrett / Hawaii Jewelry)

So she went online to humiliate her ‘cheap’ husband-to-be

But it seriously backfired both on MumsNet forum and on Facebook

And the post has since been deleted

OK. I think that it's reasonable (DONT GET TRIGGERED WAIT) for her to like how the ring LOOKS. She is going to be wearing it for the rest of her life and it IS reasonable to want to get it together, for that reason. BUT THE PRICE DOESN'T FUCKING MATTER.

Exactly. Why are people acting like someone isn’t allowed to like their engagement ring? I agree that the price shouldn’t matter. But people condemning her for not liking how it looks are ridiculous. Maybe he should have asked one of her friends to go with him to pick it out or something. She’s going to wear a ring she hates for their entire marriage? Very shortsighted for people not to see this as an issue. However, this is something you talk to your close friend about in private. Not post it online smh

I knit my engagement ring: $1 worth of yarn and a $2 plastic diamond bead. My wife would have turned me down if I wasted $1,000+ on a ring. We're both frugal, and 5 years into the marriage our house is paid off. T2i_IMG_00...a08d59.jpg T2i_IMG_003502-5bb2158a08d59.jpg

Congrats. You should be proud for spending money on something as important as a house. But a yarn ring won't hold up. With no house payment, you can now afford a traditional ring. It doesn't have to be expensive. It would make a great anniversary gift.
