A ring represents a commitment to a lifelong promise of caring, laughter and love with someone important. However, it appears that this gent is under pressure to get a pricey one for his bae.

South African online users responded to the post with their differing views. While some advised that he get his girlfriend what she wants, others motivated for a compromise.

Linda N. Stanley said:

“If it is important to her, it is not a waste of money!! It is something girls dream about. Part tradition, part romance, and part " Hey look how much he cares." If you don't think she is worth it, then perhaps you should decide if she is the ONE for you. Even if she agrees to forget it, she will always feel you didn't really care enough to give her that special moment when the ring is given.”

“I’m seeing so many people saying She deserves diamonds if that’s what she wants? I want a lot of things. But that doesn’t mean I’m owed said things because I want it.”

Brittany Nicole Fairchild commented:

“It really is a waste imo. I love my silicone ring just as much as any diamond. It doesn't have to be removed at all and incurs no damage. I may be an old soul because I believe it’s the man giving the ring that should matter not the ring itself.”

Lola M Cutler responded:

“A ring is a symbol of your love it’s not a waste of money it’s not the cost you pay for a ring.”
