your wife owns you, and both of you know it.... "make sure to pick up those tampons and an US weekly on your way home" haha, putz
Sounds like someone is envious. I'm guessing your wife had to settle for cubic zirconia and a courthouse wedding, if anyone ever married your cheap self.

Three days of diving and the husband-to-be only coughed up $750? Cheapskate! I don't care how much he spent on the ring. The diver got screwed.

If this guy would like, I lost a very nice Cruxian hook bracelet off the beach from our honeymoon resort in St Croix, I wouldn't mind if he went scuba diving to find it for me!:) That's awesome that she got her ring back, I know how heartbroken I was at losing a $75 bracelet, I can't imagine a $7,000 ring!

Nope, just stating the obvious. I dont beleive materiel items show love. With that said i wouldnt buy my wife a diamond the size of a grain of sand, but lets be honest with ourselves here. Why you got to brag about the size? youre probably picking up some tampons too on your way home for the mrs. and probably a globe on your way out. grow a pair.

There probably aren't too many people out there regretting a courthouse wedding (except those ending in divorce.) The big weddings - nothing but stress, not even enjoyed by bride and groom because they are so worried that everyone is having a good time; then they can't get a house because they spent so much on a wedding. Priorities!!!

How does a ring end up under 3 inches of sand that quickly?

this poor guy should have called off the wedding as soon as he realized his future wife is no good with keeping things in her mouth..he is going to have a miserable life.

Since when does an accident have to been something that can't be prevented? An action producing UNINTENDED results can be termed an accident. I'm pretty sure it wasn't her plan to have the ring fly out of her mouth and then bounce a certain way in the boat until it fell in the water. Seriously.

$7,000 for a ring = she gives good helmet and better keep it up after marriage.

Not true at all some women are not money grubbers and don't care how much a ring costs unlike you apparently. So basically you are saying that you only have sex if the man buys you expensive things? sounds like a w-h*ore to me which is really what it is.

She took a $7000 ring off and put it in her mouth. How secure is that. Seriously

You're single, right? Personally and privately, I agree with you. I'd have rather spent the money on an ATV. Most women however, grow up dreaming about "their day" and their ring. Sometimes, making their dreams come true pays off more than keeping your bank account fat.

Not single bud, and i get your point, im not arguing that. do you go around bragging it up though? isnt that douche baggery at a pretty high level? cant you spend the money and leave it at that? do you really have to try to make yourself sound macho by putting it out there how much you spent? thats what im talking about

7000G is a ton for a ring...considering the mark-up in jewelry...probably about 1200 wholesale price.
Look if you think the ring is what it takes to get the girl...start counting the days to the divorce.
Big Heart--small ring...Big Ring--small thing!

You may recall that it was the Republican's hero, Ronald Reagan, who back in the 1980s wanted waitresses, hairdressers, and other less-than minimum wage workers to bear their fair share of his trillion-dollar deficit by reporting their tip income. Meantime of course, he complained that tens of thousands of dollars worth of gifts to himself and Nancy should be tax-free.
