Soon, I will buy an engagement ring. I will pay 1k-2k for a damn piece of carbon that is "pretty".

Haha, glad you're looking forward to the purchase! I made that purchase about 18 months ago (engaged 9/21/03). About 6 months ago was the big day (8/15/04). And in about 7 months will be another big day (9/11/05 ish). So, just to warn you, it only gets more expensive from there!

Actually, our wedding was about half the cost of the ring, and the honey moon was about the same as the wedding. Now if only I could somehow keep the cost of kids down.....!

I started reading "the wedding chapel" board and have now moved on to "parents and expecting parents".

Good Luck!
