Is the ring necessary in a wedding proposal?»

Diamond engagement rings are a translation of a much older sexist tradition of putting a down payment on one’s bride. This is, incidentally, still legally the case. In many states a bride-to-be can still sue her fiancée for breach of contract if he breaks off the engagement.

They're expensive, useless and, worse, are insulting to notions of actual love. As anyone who's been in a serious long-term relationship knows, you don't need geology to proclaim (let alone justify) said love.

Before you take a lady for a cheapskate who just doesn't want to spend the money on a ring, let me explain a bit more. Many of us, especially men, have strapped our feet to the commercialised notions of what constitutes relationships.

This is because your fiancée many times before you got engaged should know that you are not interested in getting an engagement ring at all, diamonds or no. There are a lot of reasons you feel this way, including your particular indifference to jewelry.

Therefore we would want to know if the ring is necessary in a wedding proposal.
