“Not happy with the Ring?” – A tactful solution

“Not happy with the Ring?” – A tactful solution

What to do if you don’t like the ring

Each individual has different likes and dislikes in life. Imagine how boring life would be if we all had the same taste in fashion, hobbies and life in general? These differences in taste can often cause ructions but if handled with precision, can be ironed out without having to cause chaos.

When it comes to choosing an engagement ring, your better-half may choose something for the special occasion that won’t carry your instant approval. This may make you feel like a horrible person for judging your now-fiancé, but then again, we’re all human. So, how can one solve this engagement ring fiasco?

Please don’t panic!

After the exhilaration of your fiancé asking your hand in marriage wears off and you get a moment to examine the ring, your heart sinks to your shoes. I don’t like this ring… Why did he pick this one? He doesn’t know that much about me if he thought I would love this ring… What if we’re not meant to be… Your mind will be racing with all sorts of bogus thoughts about the ring you will be wearing for the rest of your life; the one you don’t like. Take a moment, dear bride. Take a deep breath and relax. The problem can be solved in much easier ways than pinning your fiancé in a corner while breaking both your hearts.
