I’m going to share my views on the wedding ring, this will offend many; so if you are afraid, don’t read! I see that it is bullshit. Nothing material can ever represent the love you have towards another. I understand those who are rich that have money to throw around, they can wear fancy jewelry to feel good about themselves. But most of us are not wealthy and I see that it is unwise to spend thousands on a piece of jewelry when that money can be used towards something more practical.
The greatest symbol of the showing of love that you can give to another is your affection towards that individual; this affection then can lead towards the creation of a child. The creation of a child is the absolute greatest symbol of love that no material possession can ever match. Rather than spending $50,000 on a wedding ring, I see that money can be put to greater use to care for the child that you create together. That is more practical and functional. It is giving, not selfish. Rather than being greedy and keeping $50,000 all for yourself, you can share that money with your child & partner.
A woman that truly loves you will not accept a wedding ring of high value. She understands that there is no symbol that can represent her true love for you. Her love goes beyond any wedding ring; her love is in her heart, which goes with her everywhere. She cannot leave her heart on the sink or accidently flush it down the toilet. She is not selfish, rather than allowing you to spoil her, she wants you to share that money with the child and the entire family. Rather than spending $50,000 on a ring, she would rather have you spend that money on purchasing a home to share together or to enjoy outings together.
Only for the truly wealthy can I see it to be understandable that such a high value wedding ring to be purchased. Everything in life is already paid for in full and you just have nothing else to spend money on so you over dramatize the smallest things and turn it into something big when in actuality it is something small. You essentially want to “show off” your “love” to the public and prove to others how much you “love” your partner.
You “love” your partner so much that you are willing to spend $50,000 on her wedding ring. To me that is actually having an opposite reaction. What it shows to me is that you are extremely desperate for love, so desperate that you have to pay for it, not only pay for a meal, but pay $50,000! True love comes for free; fake love always has a monetary value attached to it.
It also makes the woman look very selfish. She is actually willing to accept a $50,000 wedding ring; this just shows how much of a gold digger she really is. It is not a good indication of real love. A woman that truly loves you will not accept a wedding ring of high value, actually before you even purchase the ring, she will advise you clearly not to purchase one. She is wise enough to know that the money spent on the ring can be put to much greater practical use. The men paying for high value rings are essentially paying for false love.
