  • gf and me disagree about price of engagement ring?


Answer #1 | 23/12 2013 07:56
does she realize she isn't getting much for $300? Maybe look into rings without diamonds- look at other stones or no engagement ring at all. Just get a nice wedding band
Answer #2 | 23/12 2013 10:42
I would tell her you already compromised on the price. Just buy her the ring and that's that!
Answer #3 | 23/12 2013 09:50
Be thankful you are getting a thrifty wife.

It is YOUR money to spend. What makes her think she has any say in this in the first place? You are two different people with two separate pay checks and what each of you does with your extra income is your own business. You two will never make it as a successful couple if you cannot even agree on how to let each other spend your own money. This issue is unfortunately much deeper than just this one incident. Is she going to dictate every single purchase that you try to make? You both need to take a step back and come to an agreement about finances in general before even thinking about spending the rest of your lives together, let alone the next few months. Money is the number one reason for divorce, and if you two had an agreement about finances in place that you both were comfortable with then this would not even be an issue.

It's her ring, she will be the one who will be wearing it and not you, let her decide what she wants. She's being responsible for not wanting to overspend on a ring when I am sure that money could go to other things.

Go for the 300, make her happy, because she's a keeper!
Answer #7 | 23/12 2013 16:23
Maybe your gift isn't into the whole big flashy ring thing. She is the one who will have to wear it, so get her something she loves, even if its only $100. I would have been furious if my husband spent over $500 on a ring, because I hate jewelry and rarely wear it. That extra cash can go into the wedding, honeymoon, or saved for a down payment on a house. Don't waste the money on something she has made clear she does not want.

Can I ask what on earth makes you think you're ready to get married? Re-read your question! The 2 of you are having a disagreement about a couple hundred dollars on a ring, and she's refusing to marry you if you don't cave in to her? Like so many questions about rings, this isn't about the ring at all. It's about 2 people who can't come to agreement about an incredibly minor issue, yet who apparently think getting engaged will magically solve everything. What happens when it's $100,000 disagreement about a home? Just drop this silly idea and learn to communicate on an adult level before supposedly pledging your entire future to each other.

I read your other questions - Don't plan on marrying this girl - she's unstable. The two of you can't even agree on the price of a single object - there will be far more complex decisions to make than this. You aren't ready, and she may never be. Please don't get locked into this - it's a bad marriage waiting to happen.

Just so you know the average price for an engagement ring is about $6,000 she won't be getting anything nice for $600. Remind her she will be wearing this ring for the rest of her life. I've bought purses for over $300 so take her shopping and see what you can find that she likes and go from there
Answer #11 | 23/12 2013 17:22
Tell her this is a gift to her and she has no business, just like any other gift, to tell you how much you are allowed to spend. My goodness, she should stay out of this one. Sure, it will be HER ring, but this is YOUR gift to her. Three hundred dollars will get you next to nothing in way of an engagement ring. Go for the thousand dollars and tell her if SHE does not accept YOUR gift, then you won't ask her to marry you again. She is being childish and she is being controlling. Do you really want to marry someone like that?
Answer #12 | 24/12 2013 06:27
You choose a ring you think she might like, and don't tell her the price.
