- A wise lady has advised men to go with what they can afford when shopping for an engagement ring
- The lady said that whatever ring they buy could be replaced with a better one later whenever they are financially stable enough
- Some of the comments under the tweet ask why it is even necessary to spend money on a proposal ring at all
A lady with the handle @OlisaOsega has stirred conversations online after she advised men to only stick to rings they can afford when they want to propose to their women.
She said worrying over the inability to buy an 'expensive' one should not be an issue as the same ring could be replaced by a better one when money comes.
@OlisaOsega said ladies should not have any problem with the arrangement. Many in her comment section are wondering why an engagement ring should be a cause for worry in the first place.
See her tweet below:
Below are some of the reactions the post got:
"Women shaaa.. So engagement ring is still a problem to some people?? Some people wey wan marry sef no dey even send all those things.. Some sef don't do the engagement ring thing... They go straight and marry. Engagement ring bawo."
"Even wedding ring. I purchased what we used according to affordability (in 2011), changed it after a year. Then discovered the first was even better than the second. Can't say "shame" made me look for money to get the 3rd, PMB's dollar just started shooting up & affected the price."
"Ladies advising themselves in Buhari regime after double recession in 5 years... I'm loving this."
"Change keh. She can wear it till you guys get married. Engagement ring isn’t to be worn for a long time."
"Wahala for who dey wait for man to kneel down propose with ring. Ogbeni go and collect list jor."
Meanwhile, Briefly.co.za earlier reported that a romantically-inclined man raised the standard for public proposals as he asked his girlfriend, Kemi, to marry him onboard an international flight.
Before the proposal, a flight attendant came onto the address system and told passengers that there was an important announcement before the besotted guy approached the front of the aisle and spoke.
In a clip that has gone viral online, the man said that he would like to use the opportunity to introduce his girl and ask her a very important question.
