Traditionalists exercise caution, because this is some gasp-worthy information. Nowadays more and more women are going halfsies on their engagement rings, and not only that, but occasionally footing the bill entirely!
This is a juicy topic indeed with so much room for different views and opinions, so let's talk it out.
First of all, there are many reasons why this would be happening. Some are reasonable, some not so much.
-to help establish a partnership-like relationship
-to make a higher quality ring more attainable
-to replace an unfavorable original ring
-because the ring was paid for from a joint account
-to help the future husband with his finances
While I don't disagree in the least with helping to purchase an engagement ring, I do think it takes something away from the exhilarating romance at the moment of the proposal. Because who are we kidding: popping the question is undoubtedly the most important and meaningful thing, but who doesn't want to be surprised with a beautiful ring

Girls actually taking responsibility for the financial resources, and rather than just being offered something so high of value, they actually choose to contribute to it.
It's like paying for yourself on a date, but with bigger numbers. I think it's great.2
