No, I don't think she should give the ring back! That was a huge moment in her life, and I think it is incredibly selfish of her to take that moment away. My boyfriend got 500 dollars for graduation, and he let his mom hold on to 200 of it (because he doesn't have a bank account) and he still hasn't got the money. Fuck the mom.

If by desperate you mean I like talking to different people and enjoy different conversations then Yes.

Also I tend to study a lot because of my major so yeah, I'm always interested in making new friends, online and off.



Agreed. Starchild is a relentless attention whore. We should all make fake myspace accounts just so we can go fuck around on the idiot's page. Seriously Starchild, (what a awfully corny name I might add) stop deluding yourself with the idea that anyone from this site actually gives a shit about you and your myspace page.

To everyone else, I do apologize for my impoliteness, but that self-centered idiot has been really obnoxious of late.


taking the ring away isn't taking away the engagement or the marriage that they will have, and he can get another less expensive ring. OP needs to stop bitching, because she's still engaged and her mother-in-law needs the money. where i come from, mother-in-law means family, and when your family is need, you help them. sorry, OP, but i don't really have any sympathy for you

I think it depends on the reason, if she sincerely is in a bad way and needs some cash I would give it up no problem. But if she did drugs/gambled or we were always handing her money then no. What if she is constantly asking everyone for money but refuses to get a job, playing the I raised you card. Sorry, but I would have no pity for her and I would tell them to find another way besides taking back a ring from a memorable day in my life. Personally, I am one of those people that hears someone got engaged but there is no ring and I don't consider it a legitimate engagement. I have seen too many people wait months and years being "engaged" and never getting a wedding, because the bf really isn't serious.

It's still f*cked up...I wouldn't return my engagement ring for anything in this world! My husband suggested I sell it because I still have my wedding band and we could use the money for my visa to the US and that he'd get me another ring later down the line. I didn't want to do that though, even if he got me another ring because there's also emotional value to my engagement ring that cannot be replaced. I want the actual ring he proposed to me with, not one that just looks like it.

You know, most guys don't get that it is the thought that counts. If it looks nice and only costs 50 instead of 200 bucks, most girls are okay with that. So I am told. =)

No you're not. I would be happy with any ring as long as it reflects my personality. I would be so stoked about getting married (because thats what counts) than care about an expensive ring. Some people can't afford over $200, and there's nothing wrong with that.

It depends on the person. If someone has a mansion and three cars and pays 200$ for a ring then he is definitely cheap. If someone is struggling but saves up to buy someone a 200$ ring then I don't think it's cheap at all. I've seen a ring that's 1k and one that's 12k and they are both very beautiful and very shiny.


Why? It's not like his mother choose to need money.
Or are you just trolling..? x_x
It's kind of sweet that he'd take back a ring for his fiancee for his mother.
A hell of a lot of children wouldn't do that. ._.

I don't think it's trolling. I think it's completely inappropriate to ask that of her son, instead of being happy about the engagement, ask for the ring. It's kind of disgusting.

Him taking the ring back doesn't signify the proposal ending. If he's willing to do that for his own family, think about what he would be willing to do for you once you're a part of it.

It's not that so much as, the mom didn't like the marriage news (why didn't he know anything about her needing money before, and suddenly she claims that), disapproves of the marriage and wanted to be a b*tch to her future daughter in law.

The son is dumb enough that the mom can manipulate him that easily in screwing over his fiancee without him seeing how obvious it was.

All in all, OP's life is f**ked, she's marrying a moron with a manipulative b*tch of a mother who makes him do whatever she pleases.


Yes, that could be true, but we don't know for sure.

I assumed it was a situation of dire financial need, and the son helped his mom... as opposed to his mom being a cold, manipulative cuntrag.

Or maybe 83 she is a nazi who eats puppies and rapes babies, then it would an fml for the boyfriend. But seriously, your guessing too much stuff and acting like it's fact.

  Moemoemoe_fml  |  0

And you don't think it's a bit obvious that the son would have known already about the mom's problems if that wasn't a lie? She never mentioned anything until he told her he'd get married. What a surprising coincidence...

I think it's pretty obvious the mom manipulated him easily. Whether she did so because she truly needed money or because she hates the daughter in law, that's the one thing that we don't know.
