Does she need to know...

So I just bought my diamond and setting.

I plan to propose this week.

I know she'll love it when she sees it.

I'm happy with my purchase, but it's less

then the recommended 2month salary system...

I spend 1 months salary.

 

Does she have to know what I paid?

 

BTW, I wasn't trying to skim off from the 2month system.

After doing my research and seeing what's available and

knowing what she likes, I feel I put together a beautiful ring that

happened to be worth 1months salary.

 

Just wondering what your wife would think about this

situation. If she's a good girl, she'll love whatever you give as

long as you did the best you can.

To me, it's amazing that you call this a "system". Shows how well marketing has internalized this guideline for consumption by the public!

 

As Feydakin states, it is nothing more than a marketing ploy from the diamond industry to try to get you to spend more money.

 

Now, I wonder if that's 2 months NET or 2 months GROSS... :blink:

That's up to you. The foundation of a good marriage is good communication and no secrets. You may want to use that as a guideline.

I have to disagree with Ben on one point.. Been married going on 20 years this summer.. And the basis of a good marriage is keeping your mouth shut and only divulging the minimum neccessary to carry on a conversation..

 

If she knew how I had paid for some of my toys I'd be dead..

Wow, Feydakin and I actually agree on something. :blink:

LOL, you're bringing out the idealist in me.

 

Allow me to put forth another hypothesis:

 

1. The secret of a great marriage is great communication with no secrets...

2. If your toy expense and other indiscretions are a sore point with your spouse, then the secret of a good marriage is to keep your mouth shut.

 

How's that?

That works for me Ben..

 

My wife goes away for 2 weeks each year for her Reserve duty, and each time she comes home there is some new toy in the house or garage.. And when she complains, I point to the eating machines in the back yard and suggest that a woman with one ass doesn't need four horses :blink:

 

I am so glad her and I get along so well :blink:
