If my boyfriend asks me to pick between getting a home or an engagement ring, should I be offended?
Most Helpful Girl
Well, as some who just recently got engaged, I can say he has somewhat of a valid point. I love the engagement ring I got, but now we are struggling with "do we want to have a big, nice wedding or do we want to have a nice down payment on a house? " I think your boyfriend is being realistic to a certain extent, but honestly he needs to consider your feelings too. Have you given him some sort of indication that you want a ridiculously nice ring? Let him know you just are looking for a symbol of a commitment from him, not an overpriced diamond. It's not really fair for him to say one or the other. After all, if he is expecting you to move into that house and build a life together, then he needs to make some sort of commitment to you. Good luck!0
