Getting engaged is supposed to be one of the happiest times in a girl’s life, but one gal’s mother ruined her joy by ring shaming her.
A woman shared on an online forum that her boyfriend of three years recently proposed with a ring that cost about $19. While some folks may think that’s cheap, the woman explained that she isn’t that big into jewelry and they don’t have a lot of money, plus the ring in question was one she has mentioned she liked "a couple of months back."
The bride-to-be was thrilled noting, “I was just as happy when he asked me as I would have been with an expensive ring,” but it seems her mother didn’t see things the same way. She says when she told her mom the news, “She was shocked and disgusted that my partner hadn't spent more money on the ring and said it basically doesn't count as an engagement.”
