My bf and I have been together for 2 years and we have been working for a few years now.
Recently we have been looking at engagement rings. After doing some research, I realised that diamond rings have very low resale value so I decided that I do not want a diamond ring anymore.
I read that gold bars have high resale value so I decided that I want my bf to propose to me with a 500g gold bar which cost around $40k.
He was happy when I told him that I do not want a diamond ring but he called me crazy when I asked him to propose to me with a $40k gold bar.
He then asked me why I want a $40k gold bar and I said the gold bar would be like a form of compensation for me. Like if he ever mistreats me in our marriage, I can sell the gold bar for some money as a form of compensation.
After trying to persuade him for like an hour, he still insisted that the gold bar is too expensive. But he has $60k of savings in his bank so buying a gold bar shouldn’t be a problem for him.
I’m sure he can afford to buy the gold bar but he is totally unwilling to buy one. Was I really crazy to ask for a gold bar?
Editor’s note: You seem like a person who is not even worth a $4 burger, what $40k gold bar you want lol
