No, to be honest, that would kind of ruin it for me. I'm happy to foot the bill for some other things to help offset the money he's spending on a ring (I already pay for way more dates because I'm more financially stable, so that wouldn't be new to us), but I don't want to formally split the cost of it. That's just not romantic to me, and it would eliminate the symbolism of the gift. There are a lot of traditional/romantic things that I don't expect and am okay going without, but an engagement ring is one situation where getting my magic moment is important to me. I want it to come from him, and I want it to be a surprise. That can't happen if I'm splitting the cost with him. If everything goes well, I will only get one proposal in my life. I hope my guy will understand that and have the same desire to go all out.
in my opinion, a ring is a present from a guy to you as the symbol of commitment, it should be his money. but I will happily split the ceremony cost with him, after all the ceremony's cost is much higher
No... I bought his, and he bought mine. Honestly, I'd rather just not have a ring or wait however long it takes him to get me a ring, than to pay for my own.
Nay. An engagement ring is a symbolic gift, not something you buy (even partially) for yourself. I'd rather he get a cheaper ring than ask me to split the cost. I'd also never let him pay for his wedding band, that's for me to buy and give to him.
