    All very true and not new news. Thankfully my wife never had a hankering for diamonds and felt that the engagement ring (she picked it out) should be quite thrifty.

    Thank goodness my wife’s fancy tends toward more practical things.

    One set of rings is enough, especially when both partners can agree on the design. Fuck you, deBeers.
