    Did you know for every dollar a man makes, a woman gets 70 cents?

    Why the hell should I only be getting 30 cents from every dollar I`ve earned?

    @Nidonemo lots of girls do propose nowadays. Personally, I`m traditional so I would rather be proposed to (I also think my bf would rather it that way anyhow). However, I`m of the opinion getting married should be a joint decision, no matter who proposes to who. A couple should talk about it and make these decisions together before any proposing happens lol.

    As for diamonds... personally I like them, but I think it`s just a preference.

    This is so drating wrong... Pressuring guys to buy a drating ROCK that has no REAL value, but unless you do it, you`re gonna be stigmatized like a neo-nazi in a bar mitzvah...
    Think about what the money could be used for!! Cancer organizations, thai blow jobs, traveling, getting cultured. NO I`m gonna buy a drating mineral inside a ring!!

    kummi90, you put "cancer organizations" and "Thai blowjobs" in the same list of "worthwhile donations" instead of getting your girl an engagement ring. Your argument is invalid.
    Also, good luck finding a girl who`d go along with you buying a blowjob for yourself instead of a ring for her!

    @kummi90 it`s just an ad campaign lol, calm down. Ads pressure us to do all kinds of things that are not necessary. Not everyone thinks you NEED to buy a diamond in order to propose. My sister was just recently proposed to with a sapphire ring (which is MUCH cheaper than a diamond would have been and just as pretty) and she loves it. It depends on the girl.

    Also, "value" can be a subjective. You might value a fancy sports car or a "thai blowjob" over what you think is just a piece of jewelry, but someone else will cherish their engagement ring like a prize possession for their whole life and would never trade it for anything.

    On the other hand I am aware of the corrupt diamond industry lol. That is why you do not go to the mall and buy a diamond ring and pay a ridiculous markup on top of the ridiculous price they already are.

    Attention dudes (especially those with jizz for brains), the point of the ad (aside from selling jewelry) is that women are sick of boys being boys and not men. Sh*t or get off the pot, either ask her to marry or let her go but quit treating her like a toy.

    It has no real value to YOU. First, you`re 13-17, you`re still nub at life.

    You haven`t saved up from your little checks for months to buy your girlfriend a ring that you hope she`ll LOVE, and when you DO ask her to marry you, seeing her face light up and tell you how much she loves the ring.

    Yeah, no real value at all. GG.

    @JeffBeau, Yea, what you just said there, it really makes no sense. Who the hell were you aiming that comment at anyways? Are you gay or a tranny or something? Or perhaps you just happen to be that guy that will be eternally screwed over by women who "can`t wait to tie the not". I`ve had several girlfriends that withing a month of dating have already started talking about marriage. Give me a break. Unless I`ve dated a woman for at least a year, nothing is going down. The reason why? Theres a lot of crazy ass bitches out there, and they seem to be alot better at hiding it than men. Tie the not too early, and you could end up with a bipolar mess. But hey, since you have such a big mouth, go ahead and give it a try.

    Yeah...tell you how much she loves the "RING"....insane that it is percieved that if the rock is small the marriage proposal is no good. A good woman would be happy with a damn dognut on her finger if the love was true. Not drooling over vanity.

    The diamond syndicate is one of the most vile, horrid, vicious industries around. Any woman who really wants a diamond should be made aware of the lives that are destroyed by the process. And with todays technology you can always have one engineered and not have supported the war lords in africa.

    Yeah, no real value at all. GG.

    Why not just give her the money you earned instead? That`s better in every way. It`s a more honest testament to her character and it doesn`t support a corrupt cartel based on abusing people to sell tiny bits of rock at vastly inflated prices to fools who buy them to impress other, more mercenary fools.

    Maybe I`m weird, but I`d want anyone I married to love me, not money I spent to support abusing people.

    I like jewelry, but honestly, I am not willing to wear a stone that is covered in the blood of inocent people. There are plenty of cheaper, prettier and cleaner stones in the market. Yes, I still have my vanity, but at least I try to find out where that stone I wear comes from.

    It`s possible to make diamond in a lab, from carbon.

    It`s possible to get carbon from hair.

    So...you can give an ethically sound and very personal diamond by having one made from your own hair. Or their hair. Or a pet`s hair. Whatever.

    If a diamond is that important to her, she`s probably capable of making it herself with a chunk of coal and some anal lube.
