Woman furious as husband buys her wedding ring with N11m from their joint account

A 28-year-old woman has been left shattered because of her husband’s decision to use the money in their joint savings account to purchase an engagement ring for her without her knowledge.

She said they have been married for about three months and are still squabbling over the fact that he bought diamond ring valued at approximately $8,000 (N11 million).

The young lady was very disappointed with his action and emphasized that a ring should be considered a gift in line with cultural norms.

The post reads; “My husband (30M) and I (28F) have been married for just under 3 months and have been having a huge argument about my engagement ring.

We got married 1 month into him proposing to me. It wasn’t a fancy wedding and we had our honeymoon right after we signed the papers at the courthouse. He gave me a diamond engagement ring that’s close to 8K – a 2 carat lab diamond. He didn’t have funds available readily as we are saving for a home so he put this ring on a payment plan.

I found out after we married and merged our finances that he has been withdrawing funds from our joint account (we make roughly the same) to finance this ring. I was just taken aback and honestly put off by the fact he is making me pay for a GIFT he gave to me.

We have been having some arguments lately and he feels that ring is a wedding expense and it’s only fair that I contribute towards it too, and that as a woman of this day I shouldn’t hesitate to be an equal partner. I call bullshit and shared my thoughts on this whole thing.”
