    Never waste your time trying to explain who you are to people who are committed to misunderstanding you.

    If the marriage suppose to be 50/50 why the ring(s) can't be? I don't see the big deal.

    I don't want to pay for my own engagement ring nor do I want to split the cost. If I'm giving you something as a gift, I'm not going to ask you to pay for half.

    Isn't an engagement suppose to be a surprise...
    I can understand you two choosing your wedding rings and 50/50 on the cost...
    But the 50/50 on the engagement ring, no!... that should be a surprise...
    Only shades of colour that are seen on IMIX, BLACK, WHITE & GREY. The beauty of all things are transform into those colours... Winter very LONG, spring, summer fall very SHORT.

    Engagement rings are not that serious. Its the sentiment behind them that is. Whatever works for individual couples..I don't see anything wrong with it, nor anything wrong with a woman that wants it to be gift.

    Don't they usually come in a set, so the two ( engagement ring and wedding ring) match?

    I don't think anyone should but a ring before testing the waters some way or the other with the person it's dedicated too. Same for perfumes.

    Baje nuff fellas get turn down after spending on ah ring, that's the only surprise came out of it LOL. before I got married my wife and I talked about marriage and we lived together before taking that big step. I think fellas should be glad about this new trend, it's kind of a sure shot way that you won't be made a fool of when proposing. LOL

    Do men really decide on their own to "marry" a woman without making sure that her answer will be yes?

    Isn't that something people discuss together?

    I thought that the surprise part was only about "when" the question will be asked.

    Sensible men discuss marriage before hand, then you have the not so smart ones that just go out and buy ring assuming the answer gonna be yes.

    Lol....the game all messed up now. When a woman is so set on being married for show, everything that can be seen is scrutinized by her shallow friends. But a man that's ready to make that step will make most if not all the right moves.
