6. How much should he spend on the engagement ring?
There’s no magic number when it comes to the standard that all couples should spend on engagement rings, but to put things into perspective, if you take into consideration the amount of money you’re spending on the wedding and anything else that will result from combining lives, the last thing you want to do is go into debt over your engagement ring. If you know anything about diamonds, you should also consider the quality and clarity of the stone and not necessarily how huge it is. Pick something that you can afford that flatters your beauty and not some Kardashian engagement replica just because it’s what “hot.” You don’t have to abide by that 2-3 month salary rule either, especially if that’s money that’s better invested elsewhere (like on purchasing a home).
