Dear Doug Letters
I am a 46 year old woman of standards. I have kids, my own home and all the extras. After 2 failed marriages. I found my prince charming he popped the question and gave me a less than satisfying ring. I say again I am 46 years old. This ring looks like something that you would give to a couple just starting out. A 25 old year old woman if you will.
Doug, we are both established and I just can’t understand how he thinks that this ring is acceptable. I had to take a few moments to myself and I cried after he proposed. He noticed that my eyes were red and I couldn’t do anything but tell him how I really felt about it. He felt like I was being materialistic. I can’t figure out how to explain it to him better that this is not a ring that you give to a grown ass woman! I don’t want to look down at my hand for the next 30 and resent him.
Should I take over and pick I ring that I can live with that are up to my standards? Does anyone understand my dilemma? I don’t want to take away from the experience but I do want something special and substantial. I am worth it! Help me out.
Put the RIGHT ring on it.
