Look, I know you're right about the diamonds. But try telling that to a woman. My wife, let's call her "Lisa" for the sake of narrative, has grown up being indoctrinated by the following formula:$1k in jewelry = 1 love unitTherefore, the common joke in my house is that I'll ask her how much she loves me. She will promptly answer "7" because she currently owns approximately $7,000 in jewelry. Then I will ask if 7>or= the amount necessary to invoke a marital favor of some variety.I am, of course, joking. A little. Maybe.
But try telling that to a woman.
But try telling that to a woman.I refuse to associate with anyone who has that level of misplaced priority, manorwoman. I can guarantee that any woman who would feel put off by my not purchasing a diamond is someone I would NEVER consider marrying in the first place or likely even find attractive.
I'll bet you've spent more than $7k on gaming in the four years since I've been married.
Then she would say that a few cartels control the video game market, and that artificial demand is created by releasing new systems and removing all previous system games from the shelves, forcing people to waste thousands of dollars upgrading every four or five years.
For women, jewelry is a symbol of a relationship
Every time that I give her a new piece of jewelry, she recognizes that as another symbol that I am willing to set aside money
It's a symbol that I am willing to sacrifice my own capital for her
Also, I think it's strange that you would let such an insignificant aspect of a relationship be the main selling point.
You would NEVER consider marrying someone who was put off by you not wanting to buy her a diamond?
Now calm down and stop being so vindictive.
Diamonds have no resale value? Why would she sell any of it? It's to wear.
gaming is a fucking expensive proposition that yields no viable financial reward,
If a woman wanted something functional, I could respect that as well.
...jewelry as a whole is vain and useless
Also, this morning she told me she loves me 14

My main problem with jewelry is that it is non-functional. It serves only vanity, which, as I said, is one of the worst personality traits you can have in my book.
