There's a lot of pressure on people who buy engagement rings, and one man is finding out the hard way that it's tough to get it perfectly right.
The man took to Reddit to ask for advice after his in-laws convinced his fiancée that the ring he got her wasn't expensive enough. Yikes!
My partner and I have been talking about getting engaged for the last year or so. I have quite a good job so could easily afford an expensive engagement ring and if I was following the 10% rule then I should spend around 10-15k on the ring.
However, my parents, sister and nephew have all had covid this year so I was financially supporting all of them for a while, my sister has lost her job so I'm still supporting her a bit and my job has announced that they will be laying off around 150 people next year and while I feel confident that I'm not one of them, I don't want to guarantee it either.
