What has our nation come to?
It was a crushing experience for a young man trying to buy an engagement ring for the love of his life.
As Quinn prepared to pay the $130 he had barely scraped together for the best rings he could afford, the saleswoman called his selection “pathetic.”
Quinn’s heart sank.
But his bride-to-be, Ariel McRae, was having none of it. She let loose an epic response that shut that snooty saleswoman right up.
Love is about more than possessions
As Ariel recounted on Facebook following their ordeal:
“While we were purchasing my rings…another lady that was working [at Pandora] came over to help the lady selling them to us. She said, ‘Can you believe that some men get these as engagement rings? How pathetic.’ When she said that I watched my now husband’s face fall.”
Ariel said Quinn already felt bad about not being able to afford a more expensive engagement ring she had been eyeing.
She wasn’t about to let the man she loved go down in flames, and told the saleswoman: “It isn’t the ring that matters, it is the love that goes into buying one that is.”
Ariel continued: “I would have gotten married to this man if it had been a 25¢ gum ball machine ring. When did our nation fall so far to think the only way a man can truly love a woman is if he buys her $3,000+ jewelry? …Why do material possessions equate love??”
