Is romance dead? No really, are the days of being whisked off your feet, poetry and flawless proposals gone? I'm thinking YES, and I'm blaming YOU Tinder (read: all online dating haunts).
When it comes to having fallen hook, line and sinker for someone, I'm really, really not there yet. That said, this doesn't mean I'm not a whole lot baffled by the results from Today's survey on SPLITTING the cost of an engagement ring.
2. There's no mystique, no surprise, no "I've planned this to a tee because I really am capable and I'm ALL the man you need in your life" *does Hollywood movie kiss*.
3. It might mean he hasn't checked in with your Dad to get that all-important approving nod. Dude, come on now.
4. If he/the both of you are really that broke HE SHOULDN'T BE PROPOSING ANYWAY.
5. Suppose the marriage doesn't quite go to planned? If you did split the cost - who pockets what?
On the other hand - and I say this with great regret - there could be a teeny chance your fella may not be able to pick a ring that's just perfect for you. In that case, I guess helping to choose your bling might be appropriate - but splitting the price? No. Just no.
