She Was Engaged For Eight Years, The Ring He Finally Gave Her Is Absolutely Insulting!

Imagine finding the love of your life and finally taking the next step in your relationship. For many couples, this means marriage, but before marriage, comes an engagement, which officially starts when one partner proposes to the other, often giving them an engagement ring to mark their commitment.

In American culture, engagement rings are an important part of the wedding process. Often, the person proposing will spend a lot of time and money trying to find the perfect ring for their future partner. Sometimes people use a family heirloom as an engagement ring. In other countries, however, engagement rings are not as much of a focal point and some cultures don’t even use them at all.

But one bride-to-be has shared her disappointment online, admitting she’s been left fuming over the ‘tiny’ ring she received from her partner of eight years.

Yep, EIGHT years.

She explained the couple had been talking about getting married for almost three of those years but this was the ring “he saved up to buy me”.

Sharing a photo of the thin gold band, set with a very small diamond, she asked whether she was being “shady or materialistic” by telling him she didn’t want this “tiny ass ring”.

The post and photo were then shared on Reddit, along with the question: “is this lady justified in that she doesn’t want the ring? Would you accept it?”

It caused some debate but most people thought the woman was justified in her reaction to the piece of jewelry. Some called it the “saddest ring” they had ever seen, with many arguing there was no way her partner “saved up” for it.

“I’d just exchange it for a ring I like. Preferably a cheaper stone that you can see with the naked eye,” one person quipped.

“There’s no way somebody would buy this as an engagement ring,” another wrote.

“I’m not materialistic when it comes to things like this, but if my man proposed with THAT I would be full on insulted,” a third person agreed.

While a fourth added there was nothing wrong with going for a cheaper option, but in this case it was not acceptable.

“Sometimes you have to go for cheaper materials like topaz and maisonette and silver (I did), and there’s absolutely nothing wrong with that, but this?” she wrote. “I think I’ve had taco bell more valuable than this ring. And after 8 years? Nah, she’s justified. It’s a SYMBOL, and this symbolises that he put little to no thought or money or time into this.”
