Huge Engagement Rings Show the World You’re More Likely to Divorce
Don’t be fooled by a diamond as big as the Ritz: Scientists say that enormous engagement rings are not a predictor of a flawless, Pinterest-perfect life together. If anything, a rock that cost as much as a European vacation is a predictor for divorce. Try not to cluck ominously the next time someone thrusts a couple of carats under your nose.
LOL… Kelly Faircloth of Jezebel sums up the stats really well. Women whose engagement rings cost over $20,000 are 3.5 more likely to get divorced than those in the $5,000 to $10,000 range. Men who spent $2,000 to $4,000 on their wife's ring got divorced 1.5 time more than those who dropped between $500 and $2,000.
Yeah yeah… it's more correlation than causation but still funny to think about those who are super specific on their ring being the ones who end up getting divorced (from either side)… also… makes this run through my head: Kanye West – Gold Digger ft. Jamie Foxx
