Cheaper By The Ring

You know the type of excitement your lady gets when you pop the big question yeah? Well it is interesting to know that asides being happy you want to settle down with her, she also gets to flaunt her beautiful engagement ring to the world...and I mean the whole world literally (thanks to social media).


So let's picture this ladies. You have been with bae for a pretty long time and the D-day comes. Your heart is racing, you're about to tear up...he opens the box...and out comes a ring made of wood with a cheap gem stone.......!! I know right? Then he says "I'm sorry babe,couldn't save enough to get a proper one". Nne ejor what will you do?

Please lemme laugh in Chinese first - kwokwokwokwokwokwokwo!! Hey Chi m its funny. On a serious note, 1 in 10 women would turn down a proposal if they didn't like the ring; not to talk of a wooden ring. Total flop proposal!! Outrageously cheap!! Ladies usually expect the fairy tale proposal with the perfect ring, most with a diamond that blinds the eyes.

Ehem! Please guys..I'm not telling you to sell your properties to buy ordinary engagement ring. But haba naw, for you to have this proposal all up in your head, you should have already prepared something really special for her. I mean how would you not have been saving a little for that? Don't you love her ni???  You're not even thinking of how she will feel sef in public. It's embarassing to the both of you. Women want to show off and be like "he's so crazy about me! Bam! He put a ring on it"...and not hide the ring when asked by their friends to show it. The ones that even propose with cheap rings like that after the girl has probably gotten pregnant or has kids already...those ones are the real devils :/

So back to the question biko...my answer is NO!! I'm so not accepting that ring. I'd just tell him "Haha darling, what a nice way to practice boo. Can't wait for when you do get to propose. Love you"..lol. yes naw because it has to be practice or a 'cheap' joke. Propose when you step it up. Thank you.

Please oh, nobody should beat me. That's why you should just talk your own now. Hehehe..Talk with Krystal sweeties xoxo.

  1. Always spoke about this topic back in tech, your love for ur partner is not measured by the size of a ring or how much it costs, love, respect and trust is the main thing. If he cannot afford it, would you want him to spend his savings (him/her considering u will get married) on a ring to satisfy ur ego or cos of what people might say, why would someone put one plot of land on a ladies finger and still live as a tenant, dem go live under bridge after Na,
    But if u can afford a million dollar ring, pls buy for ur babe, for the dangotes and otedola's

  2. Very nice piece, except I'll disagree on this. Yes, the ring is important and yes, she may want to show the ring to the whole world literally, but then again, one needs to focus on what's important, what the ring represents. If he's genuinely decided to spend the rest of his life with her, and she blatantly refuses to marry him solely because the ring is wooden, and no other reason, I don't think that's fair. Some people spend most of their savings on the ring and the wedding, and then forget that there's life after all that. Then 6-12 months in, financial issues set in, and then it's still on the guy. Don't get me wrong, if he can, he should make it as memorable as possible for the Mrs, but that shouldn't be a deal breaker...Marriage is a whole lot more than just engagement and the wedding day. But then again I could be wrong. I've obviously not been married before...but ladies, priorities !

    There's more to marriage than the engagement day but y'all forget that is the pre-step that binds the both of you as one.she can love you for the nothing you have but at the back of her mind (and yours as should be) an effort has to be made. Every girl should know the financial capabilities of her partner and as such wouldn't be expecting a rare stone from Mars but that doesn't mean that a guy should propose with a wooden ring because he knows there's life after engagement and marriage. Wtf? Didn't you know you were going to engage someone? Did you not plan for it? Do you not expect her to show people when asked no matter how little it is? Every guy would jump on the pure love, honesty & trust band wagon being key but reverse the roles and tell me how you'd walk around with a wood or tin on your finger as a symbol of love from your significant other. Besides, how do you make such an understatement when you're still making a request for someone to be yours and then supposedly do and provide better when it's permanent and they have no way out? Please.

  5. I'm very happy with this piece! Now men, put yourselves in the women's shoes. If your woman proposed to you with a wooden ring how will that make you feel? Marriage is for men and not children! It's a life time commitment not a game. If you can't afford a decent ring to wed your woman, I mean a ring she can flaunt, my dear you aren't ready for marriage! Ordinary ring you can't afford is it a family you can afford or the actual wedding you can pay for? I believe the ring saids a lot about how he feels about his woman! If he won't sacrifice to buy her a nice ring, I'm not saying he should use his entire savings to buy her a ring! My father will not allow me to marry such a man! Just come and propose with furniture please

    1. 😳😳, so if u can't buy her a diamond ring, u are not ready for marriage, ok, I think we need to tell the likes of bill gates, Anthony martial that, they shouldn't have gotten married

      Delete
    2. At least I came with furniture. What if I had come with a goat? Be there waiting for diamond that it's not for kids. So Becos I be carpenter. I no go marry abi? Make papa no approve norr. At the end of the day. Who no marry? As you are there waiting for your "real men" to be coming in diamond. We the fake children men will be proposing to the real women with furniture who know that marriage is not about the ring we bring. But the commitment we are willing to make. Which has no correlation with that piece of metal and glass which ends up only in pictures on Facebook and co.

    2. @happychild at least YOU made that furniture! Plus I didn't say buy her specifically a diamond ring! Buy her a decent ring Biko!!!! She's supposed to be your treasure! If you don't another man will come and "m3rry" her with an ordinary gold plated ring! Not gold even

      Thank u for for coming to my point that we should accept what we are offered. Atleast the fact that we offered means we tried our best and we accepted the offer means we appreciate what was being offered. Even if na wooden ring.

    2. It is better for that man to propose to me without a ring . If his reasons is finances then later when he makes it in live he put a better quality but simple ring on my hand. Do u know how people will laugh at him not even me when I wear that ring? , do u know how much people will question him financially and advice me to back out?. If u want to do something special for me with wood build me a kitchen yourself or carve my name on something but not on a ring am going to carry for the rest of my life and even show my kids.will u be happy as a man if the man that wants to marry your daughter propose to her with a wooden ring .

    The fire is really turned up in here. Lemme just drop my own.
    Guys don't hate the fact that you have to be the ones to propose,trust me if it were left for the ladies,we'll create diamonds out of wood. How can u be so mean to make/buy a wooden ring to propose to the woman you claim to love? Why embarrass yourself like that and shatter the proposal story of the lady to her friends and the world(she could even deny any proposal took place) Proposal isn't the main thing,Yes!! But isn't it part of the process?
    In your mind as you were making/buying the ring,you believed your love would be felt/appreciated?? Being in love and staying in love always takes an extra mile...Biko wood is not an extra mile,we see woods everyday,in our kitchens,schools,and rooms. You now want to add another one to our fingers...HABA!!..That time you used to make or buy the wooden ring,didn't you see aboki and their briefcase of rings(at least o)
    If you have decided to take a step into marriage world,biko do it with style and prestige.
    Appreciate yourself and your woman.
    Mr Larry,there's no dispute about that,but don't forget that there's no stipulated date for it to occur,and no one knows the end time. You could grow white hairs while waiting,and probably not experience it.All that matters is now,the future is unknown.
    Kyrstal,I don talk my own o.

  12. For me my values are simple, What is worth doing is worth doing well. if you're going to put a ring on her finger you should make it so magical and special that even your kids will want to be like you with their woman when the time comes. i would say watch your woman and what makes her happy, if a simple wood would turn her on and make her smile? then it's your relationship bro, but i personally think she deserves better and don't come here telling me you got a wooden ring because you're broke as shit, there are cheaper rings out there you can buy for her until you're able to afford a diamond plated ring and a yatch for her. Like i said, watch your woman and save her some embarrassment when you can, it's your relationship and whatever rocks your boat works just fine. if all you can get is a wooden ring and you feel she's a wood lover you both can go ahead and f*ck what the world thinks.
