Because the OP felt the need take a $2000 dollar ring with while him and his girlfriend jet skied, in a pants pocket that apparently was not zipped shut. It sucks that the OP lost thing ring but honestly he deserved it if it didn't once cross his mind that taking the ring along to jet ski was a bad idea.
And that never occured to you? I mean, it sucks and all, but surely it should have crossed your mind to make sure it was very secure wherever it was..? Also, did you really have to spend that much on a ring? I mean, it's really nice that you did and all, but it seems a little excessive...
The ring can be pretty at a cheaper price but $2000 is about average for a engagement ring. You're not going to have quality diamonds for any less. Mine was way more than that but my husband had it custom made. Everybody has different tastes though, it's not the price tag that matters in the end anyway.
It could be bought from target for all I care. If he asks me to marry him I'm not going to say no because there diamonds don't sparkle like stars, or the metal isn't of high value. If you want to spend a ton, than that's your deal. I think it's unneccasary- if he loves you and wants to marry you than who says you need a ring anyway?
maybe him and this girl had previously looked at rings and the one she fell in love with was 2000. lots of people spend more than that on engagement rings. sure, there's also nice ones that cost much less, but we don't know ops life style or what kind of things his gf/fiancé likes.
ohJeeznotme, if that was aimed at me, I meant he deserved it if he hadn't considered this as a possibility and therefore hadn't put it in a pocket with some form of fastening. Wouldn't that be common sense? Obviously it's possible that the fastening could've come undone, which would be unfortunate. I see that clearly the amount you should spend on a ring seems to vary person to person. But I was just stating my opinion. Apologies for those I offended by doing so.
Probably, but if it was and it happened anyway, he would still not be an idiot. You can assume that he was an idiot but you can also assume from other details that he is not. If you look in depth into the FML however, you can assume the opposite. Things like that he was in a successful 4 year relationship, that he can afford to either own or rent a jet ski, the leisure time to use it, and a $2000 ring. He also planned and intended to make a romantic proposal to his fiancé. You're free to assume w/e you want, but from the way I look at it, one cannot safely, obviously assume that OP is simply an idiot. As for all of us, you know what assuming does right...
awh, that would be a cute story to tell at the wedding! :] hope it all works out for ya, OP
YDI for trying to propose in such a cornball way, for using a jetski (those things are obnoxiously loud! beaches are supposed to be QUIET!), for being on a lake for any reason ever, for wearing clothing with pockets, for wearing any clothing at all, for having the ring already instead of picking it out together (what if she doesn't like it? what if it doesn't fit?), and for not having SCUBA gear to be prepared for such an event.
