I don't want that again(not saying s/o is anything like that).
I showed him something that I liked last night. The center stone is morganite, and it only has diamond accents. It's also cheap. He honestly seemed kind of offended. He's aware that've makes substantially less money than my ex did. However, unlike my ex, he doesn't drink or gamble, and we are honestly living more comfortably than I did before.
Has anyone else gone throu something like this? How do you get them to understand that having a huge rock isn't a big deal. At all. He's so much more important to me than a ring.
