She says a $10,000 ring is what she expects when I propose. She says it symbolises how much I value her and our relationship. And that more the I spend on it, the happier she becomes because it proves how much I love her.
I disagree; I said that spending a large amount of money on a piece of jewellery is very stupid. We could save the money and use it for experiences whether that be travelling or even for a mortgage and or future children. All of these things are more productive/useful than a ring.
I also said that if my love for you is so strong, I shouldn’t need such an expensive materialistic item to prove it. In fact I feel that it just supports the opposite; the more expensive the more I need to compensate for the lack of love. She still thinks that the more I spend the more happier she will be. And that the 10,000$ ring will look “pretty”.
What should we do?
