So its 2015, anything changed yet? Not for me anyway. Wasnt going to post today, i have barely gotten 5 hours of decent shut eye. For a variety of reasons – someone snoring etc. Instead of fighting or fussing, i went to run around the serpentine river in hyde park its about 2.63 miles which is about 4.5km. Not bad, i did it in about 30 minutes. I am showered and i feel much better.
Nothing else going on today. I have to run commentary on the whole instagram tagging your engagement ring business. It sort of exposes your union or rather potential union to the world to criticise doesnt it? Or are we just so caught up about how the proposal went and how big the ring is that we forget the bigger commitment which is to come? No i am not talking about the wedding, i am talking about the marriage. Marriage is hard especially if the parties involved have not made the decision to be grown up and responsible.
Onto the real reason. So someone got engaged, all the Nigerian wedding handles on instagram tagged and reposted the pictures. Lovely ring, being somewhat of a diamond afficionado myself, actually fantastic ring. But some of the comments that followed spoke about the bride to be’s lace front wig and how she paid for the ring herself. Folks were asking for the guy’s profession as all he did was post pictures in the versace store in Dubai. He is also rumored to be a pimp in Dubai – i cant verify this as i never hung out in Nigerian circles when i lived there till about 4 years ago.
Anyways what i want to ask is this.
My first engagement, i fronted the money for the ring, and i refused to wear it till i got my money which i never did. Gave the ring to my mom, it wasn’t a significant cost to me, so it wasnt a big deal. I believe there are circumstances where both parties can come together and make a decision.
My rings from my husband cost a small fortune and he paid for them by himself. Apparently i ranted about wanting an asscher cut diamond and those dont come cheap as they have to be cut on demand. He made it happen.
Is it ok for a lady to buy her own engagement ring? If yes under what circumstances?
If the guy cannot afford the 50 carat pink diamond the lady wants and she can afford it?
Men is it ok for your lady to buy her ring or rings?
