It really is the thought.. At least you know he's committed to the relationship! Just because he isn't in the right place financially to get you a big ring doesn't mean that he doesn't love you. Stick with him OP, cause that way when he's got more cash, he'll repay you for supporting him during rough times. After all, love conquers all, right?

Looks like I found a gold digger. Some people just get married for money, but if you truly love someone, any ring will do. Marriage has to do with being with someone you undeniably love, not getting them to spend a boatload of money on you.

I think you missed the point, 68. The fact that the boyfriend attempted to get approved for a payment plan could mean that he couldn't afford the ring unless it was financed, which means that he was willing to purchase an expensive item that was out of his price range just to show his love. But materialistic people won't understand that.

74, I can't really see this as a good thing. Perhaps he really does love his girlfriend and would like to spend his life with her; we will never know unless OP tells us. Regardless of the level of infatuation (which is what it appears to be here, honestly), a responsible should think about their finances before deciding to invest in a high-value item such as a ring. Furthermore, this seems like an "impulse buy" -- the kind of thing you do when you're a kid who just got a bank accoun

I don't agree. An impulsive proposal in itself is not a bad thing. My husband proposed to me spontaneously (with a piece of string cos that's all he could find at the time) and we've been very happily married for four years. Deciding to propose on a whim, cos it sounds like fun, now that's irresponsible. But asking someone who you genuinely love to marry you without necessarily planning it down to the T is not in itself a bad thing.

Haha that reminded me of the episode when spongebob used a piece of string to make a necklace. Proposing with something like that is rather, unusual.

Now that's gonna be an awesome story to tell your kids. Kids, you see this beautiful diamond ring? Well, I'm gonna tell you the story of how your father and I got. Cue how I met your mother theme song.

Spontaneity is great and all, but I propose that your boyfriend should be more sure of his credit before rushing into something as important as this.

I don't think you should be buying a ring unless you're able to pay cash for it. I think spending more than you can afford on a ring is ridiculous.
