Instead, men have to waste mass money on a rock instead of a car, down payment on a house or something else that could genuinely make life better for him and his new bride — and why? Mostly so that women can flash the ring in front of their friends and brag about it. Oh, and we can’t forget that although diamond engagement rings have been around a long time, this “tradition” in the states mostly stretches back to a 1940 corporate marketing campaign. So most importantly, you’re helping to keep diamond merchants in business instead of spending the money on more useful things. Still, it is what it is…
