Woman Complains Her Engagement Ring Isn't Expensive Enough and the Internet Is Having a Field Day Dragging Her

By Pippa Raga

I'm not exactly sure who you are, dear reader, but for the sake of this story, I'm going to pretend you're someone who would, at some point in their life, enjoy getting married. Come to think of it, I don't even care if you want to get married, I'm just going to pretend you desire to — or have in the past wanted to — one day be engaged.

Because I do, and that's why this story I'm about to tell matters to me. See, I've personally given the topic of engagement rings considerable thought. I've spoken to dudes who want to spend the equivalent of a college tuition on a ring for their princesses, and I've chatted with guys and girls alike who dismiss it as a useless symbol of their love. 

For some women though, the idea of a gorgeous ring that doesn't break the bank is completely foreign and abhorrent. I guess some ladies still ascribe to the old-fashioned three-month salary model when they imagine the kind of rock they want, which, for what it's worth, is totally bonkers in this day and age

One such woman posted to Mumsnet's "Am I Being Unreasonable" forum to discuss her recent engagement ring mishap.
