This Viral Post About a 0 Wedding Ring Set Will Give You Serious Perspective
Last month, Ariel Desiree McRae and Quinn McRae decided they couldn't wait any longer to get married. After two years of dating, they decided to head to the court house and skip the big wedding. But the one tradition Quinn didn't want to miss? Buying his fiancée engagement and wedding rings.
Even though Ariel says they scrape and scrape just to pay the bills and put food in their bellies, Quinn saved up just enough money to buy two matching rings for 0. Since they made Ariel happy, you'd think that would be all that matters. But in a Facebook post that has since gone viral, Ariel shares how outside influences almost ruined their special moment.
"While we were purchasing my rings however, another lady that was working there came over to help the lady selling them to us," Ariel says. "She said, 'Y'all can you believe that some men get these as engagement rings? How pathetic.'" Ariel says she saw her now-husband's face fall and responded with the classiest response ever: "It isn't the ring that matters, it is the love that goes into buying one that is."
In fact, Ariel says she would have married him even if he gave her a 25 cent ring from a gum ball machine. To her, it wasn't about the rings she wore on her finger, but the love and happiness he brought to her life. Clearly, this story has struck a cord with people during the expensive holiday season, as her post has been shared more than 45,000 times.
"He was afraid that the love I have for him would pale, because he couldn't afford the wedding set I wanted," Ariel says.
