A concerned bride-to-be took to a wedding forum to ask for some honest opinions.
In a now deleted post, an anonymous woman shared her ordeal with the online community of Wedding Bee. As reported by the Daily Mail, she’s upset that her boyfriend of ten years broke with convention and had his mother pick out her engagement ring.
Rather than get down on one knee to propose with the yellow canary diamond of her dreams, the woman’s future mother-in-law made the final call on her diamond ring and she was less than impressed.
The author’s fiancé proposed with a ring that belonged to his grandmother, allegedly to please his mother.
However, when the woman sounds off and admits she “hates” grandma’s family heirloom, for the bride and her unborn children, fellow brides online called her a “brat” and “ungrateful” for complaining.
According to the Daily Mail, she wrote:
I always wanted a larger canary yellow diamond ring on yellow gold. A few months ago my boyfriend asked me to send him photos of the ring styles I liked and I told him exactly what I wanted.
Unfortunately, his mom stepped in. The bride-to-be said of her future mother-in-law:
Apparently she wanted me to have his grandmother’s ring.
I’m upset because it’s not what I always wanted and I waited so long for a proposal.
Does anyone know how I can talk to him about it?
The woman’s post garnered lots of attention.
I don't understand people like this young bride. A wedding ring is picked out by your spouse and GIFTED to you. Get over yourself. I would break my engagement to you if I was your fiance. You are not worthy.https://t.co/AP21buhVc3 @Femail

One commenter wrote, as per the Mirror:
You sound extremely ungrateful. Hate is such a strong word. That’s his grandmother’s ring that you say you hate. How disrespectful.
Meanwhile, others quickly defended the bride and slammed the groom-to-be and his mother.
So he went by what his mom said and not his bride to be. 10 yrs relationship. I think she deserves a ring of her choice and they can start a new tradition and give that one to his daughter. I dont know I’d be sick if I didnt like my engagement ring.

They ask her twice what she wants, get her all worked up and excited and then…give her something else. You now wear a 100 year old ring for the rest of your life, great. Whats the point in asking then? He also wears his grandpas pocketwatch? Ugly ring btw. I am with her.
