Now can someone explain why guys spend so much money on engagement rings? And why do women seem to expect such expensive hunks of stone and metal? I hear that it is customary to spend 3 to 6 months salary on a ring. I just don't get it.

The average is supposed to be around £2,600... Personally I probably will spend a lot on a ring for the person I want to marry, I know it's bad to be materialistic, but I'd want something that looks special, and I have expensive taste so knowing me I'll pick something classy, and more plain looking and it will cost a bundle. I'd rather put a lot of time and effort in, which usually means I will pick something nice. In the end I also don't want to be cheap about it. I know it's not relevant to our relationship, but people have to see this ring... Some would probably just look at a cheaper ring and think, oh he'll be a terrible husband, how would he have the money to provide for a family?0
