    Okay....please don't be too brutal, you guys

    So...I'm engaged. Me and my guy are having a few issues.

    One thing that REALLY bothers me is my engagement ring and his half ass proposal.

    We both make the same money...about out a hundred grand.

    We're in our 40's...I have a mortgage and he's been living with his parents since his last marriage dissolved.

    He has spent close to 20 grand on his car. .to make it faster...

    He spent $8500 on my ring. The center stone is 3/4 carat and the setting has 16 diamonds equalling 1/4 carat.

    People have actually commented on how small my ring is..I guess because people know what we make.

    I'm trying to get past this, but I'm kind of ashamed to admit that it really burns me up.

    He plans on getting rid of his car in a couple of years....my engagement ring is forever.

    So....lay it on me...am I an unreasonable bitch or do I have a valid "issue"

    you need an expensive stone to feel loved? A car has a practical purpose.

    If you love each other, who cares if the ring is $100. Why does marriage and engagements have to be about the ring size and money?? Girls just want to show off who has the bigger ring. A red flag in my book. I hate that. It just shows love is not the main thing. I never got the expensive ring thing. :dontknow:

    But I agree, $20,000 on a car to make it faster? Crazy. But hey, everyone is different on how they want to spend 20 grand. :)

    Does your husband have thicker and darker hair than he did when he was younger?

    @stanggirl If the ring bothers you tell him to get his money back and tell him you don't care about having a ring and you would rather go on a really nice vacation. At least then you wouldn't have to look at a ring you don't want and also get to use it to create memories.

    How can someone spend 20k on his car and live with his parents in his 40s. He sounds like a real embarrassment.
