A Taiwanese woman took to the social media platform Dcard, to share how he fiance asked her to pay for half the cost of her engagement ring.
She said that they had been dating in a stable relationship for 4 years and had no issues with money throughout the period.
Her boyfriend is apparently earning a lot of m money and they were fine with how they handled their expenses as a couple.
Her boyfriend proposed to her with a diamond ring in his hands as their friends witnessed the special moment between the couple.
She said that she was very happy and accepted his marriage proposal, but she was shocked when her fiance ask her to pay for half the cost of the diamond ring, which costs TWD15,000 (SGD 655).
Her fiance purportedly told her that he had been picking the diamond ring for a long time now, and added “it’s okay, you can transfer half the money to me slowly.”
The woman then asked him why she needed to pay for her engagement ring, adding that “isn’t a marriage proposal a gift from the man to the woman?”
He then responded by saying that the proposal was a celebration for both of them, hence the costs should be divided between them.
The couple then got into a fight over it and she then stopped wearing the ring because she felt uncomfortable doing so, scared that he would think she was taking advantage of him.
