She was happy when she received the marriage proposal… But when the woman discovered the receipt in his pocket, everything changed.

In the good old days, a marriage proposal typically involved a man buying a ring and surprising his girlfriend by getting down on one knee to ask for her hand in marriage.

Of course, marriage proposals have become more elaborate over time. Think underwater proposals, horses with unicorn horns, and hidden camera crews.

With or without all the bells and whistles, it’s an event that should be filled with happiness and excitement as you embark on the next chapter. Diamonds may be a girl’s best friend, but in a perfect world, the diamond is more of a symbol of the commitment of the girl’s best friend.

Unfortunately, the world isn’t perfect, and sometimes the diamond isn’t exactly what the future bride had in mind.

A user on Mumsnet shared her disappointment over her “small” engagement ring online, hoping for some sympathy and advice. However, her plea for help angered some people.

The user shares:

“DP proposed to me and presented me with the ring he had chosen – a diamond solitaire in white gold. I was so happy and excited to accept it, but was disappointed when I first saw the ring. The first word that came to mind was ‘small.’

There’s nothing wrong with the style of the ring itself. 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 the relatively chunky shoulders.

His salary approaches a six-figure sum, and he is usually very generous. After seeing the receipt, I know he paid £1,300 for it – which is much less than I would have imagined he would spend on such a significant piece of jewelry.

He’ll be more disappointed in me for making a fuss about it when, in his eyes, it’s fine and there’s actually nothing wrong with it, than being disappointed that I’m not really happy with it.

Someone at work allegedly told him that ‘if she’s all about the ring, then she’s not the girl for you.’

Ideally, I would have loved if we had chosen a ring together and spent a special day finding one we both liked.

As it’s something I’ll be wearing every day and such a special piece of jewelry, I really wanted to love it, and I just don’t.

Has anyone been in this situation before? What did you do?

As you can imagine, many people who saw this post were outraged by how ungrateful the future bride seemed.

The ring cost about $1,675, which is certainly more than many women would expect.

However, according to many users, the price is not the deciding factor.

Some say:

If you had said you didn’t like the style, I would have been relatively sympathetic. But if it’s just not big and flashy enough… it sounds like you’re more interested in showing off the ring than in him.

Another user thinks that her fiancé’s friend at work hit the nail on the head:

Man, I would have been ecstatic; talk about being ungrateful, the person at work is 100% right.

Others, however, were more understanding:

You’re going to get attacked for this, and people will call you greedy, but I understand where you’re coming from – not the price itself, but the fact that you’ll be wearing it every day and you’re not completely in love with it. I can see both sides.

Do you think this woman is entitled to be disappointed that her future husband didn’t spend enough on her ring?
