Three Men Approach 79-Year-Old At ATM To Rob Her, Quickly Realize They Messed With The Wrong Granny

Relationships and marriages are incredibly complicated matters. There are just too many issues associated with it that go beyond just two people who love each other and are trying to build a life together. Even seemingly mundane things like engagement rings are a part of the equation and some people seem to think that it a very crucial part of the process that cannot be overlooked.
For them, a beautiful and expensive ring diamond is an important part of a marriage proposal and anything short of that is totally unacceptable.
One of such people is a woman who recently posted on MumsNet to rant about the $1,674 engagement ring her fiancée bought for her. The woman has posted on the platform to ask for advice on how she should handle her distress over a ring that she thought wasn’t up to her expectation.
According to her although she was “happy and excited to accept” the proposal, she found herself “disappointed” at the choice of engagement ring her fiancée had chosen. She cogently summarizes her thought about the ring this way: “the first word that entered my head was small”.
” There’s nothing to dislike about the type of ring per se, as a diamond solitaire would have been my choice, but it’s the whole thing – the color of the gold, the setting, the small stone, and relatively chunky shoulders.” She continued.
She probably expected more from her fiancé because he earned a 6- figure sum and could afford a more expensive ring if he wanted to.
” His salary is nearing a 6 figure sum, and he’s usually very generous. Having seen the receipt, I know he paid $1,674 for it – which is a lot less than I would have imagined he would have spent on such a significant piece of jewelry.” She wrote
However, while the woman might have been expecting some sort of sympathy from the other women on the platform, the direct opposite happened as her post was trailed by comments that chided her for being so materialistic. Most of those who commented on the post emphasized that what should be more important to her shouldn’t be the ring but the fact that a man had to choose to spend the rest of his life with her.
Even her attempt to explain the reason for her dissatisfaction didn’t do anything to garner support for her. She had written
“Ideally I would have loved for us to have chosen a ring together and made a special day finding one we both liked. As it’s something I’ll be wearing every day and is such a special piece of jewelry I wanted to really love it, and I just don’t.”
Most of the comments why not in any way to the woman who many described as been too materialistic. Many of them tried to encourage her to try to make the best of her marriage rather than focus on a piece of jewelry that did not even matter.
A woman who has been married for 40 years wrote: “A ring does not make a marriage, Hard work does. I’ve been married for over 40 years and I don’t have a diamond ring. I never wanted one. I thought it was a waste of hard earned money. Guess what? I’m just as happy!”
