it feels so sweet when your love proposes for a marriage, his feeling of commitment is confirm, he is decided to spend his life with that person. This is the time also to decide for a woman if she would accept the proposal. In some countries,mostly in Asia, it has to represent by an engagement ring from a guy. Nowadays, do engagement rings still of relevance to show your commitment? What if the guy could not afford to give such thing? Do the cost of an engagement ring matters? Your thoughts on this will appreciate.

I agree with sender. The engagement ring is a symbol of your commitment to one another, prior to actually getting married. I actually picked out my own engagement ring, since I knew my husband (boyfriend at the time) would have spent a ridiculous amount of money on it. I wasn't willing to go broke, just to have an engagement ring. The amount of money it costs, and what it means to you, have no connection. You could have a $10,000 ring, and end up getting divorced a year later, or you could have a $500 ring and be married a lifetime! There is really no correlation.

My thoughts exactly. Expensive engangement ring doesn't guarantee a long lasting relationship.

My husband never give me engagement ring when he proposed. We have wedding ring but its fake so we do not wear it anymore. Were planning to buy one for each other but wedding ring is so expensive.

first it is a nice feeling that your man before you get engage he will give you an engagement ring. It is a sign of you know commitment and getting to get married. But for me the amount or the value does not matter at all what really matters the true intention of both of you why you will get will married but of course because you love each other much. I remember whenm my husband propose me to get married it was a funny day of my life even when i just remember it i just can't keep myself from laughing. H egive me a ring( a ring that you can get when you buy a cnady for your kids) it is a free ring from the candy ) then he give to me and he said will you marry me. And i said heck yah i will married you and now we are happily happily married for 2 years now. And i remember i do have a friend of mind we got engage the same time during that time but his fiancee gave her a diamond and they have a very fancy and extravagant marriage and now they ended up in divorce coz the guy has not time with her and always work and worlk and work. In life you cannot really tell ah.........

For me they have many who made that cheap cost why you don't buy in them it is very important in the sigh that you are soon to be married specially in the ring in married time.

My hubby proposed to me at a storage unit. At first I didn't think he was serious but he was and my first ring was a cubic zirconia diamond not a real one but he promised me that he would get me a better ring when he could and he did. When we got married he bought a set for me that included the wedding band and engagement ring together. I told him that he didn't need to get me a real diamond because we love each other and that is what matters but he got one for me anyways :)

I dont think that engagement rings are necessary, it is just a ring. What we care about most is that fact that they proposed and not that they gave us an object. To some an engagement ring is a symbol of love, and if this is true than they shouldnt have to buy an expensive one because what we apreciate more is the fact that they want to commit in a deap way and they think that we are the one.

An engagement ring is a symbol of your commitment to another. it is the promise you will spend your future with this person. It is the bond of your love. The expense of the engagement ring is not the most important part. it is the promise you make to love someone and build a future with them.
