In 1997, while covering the election of Charles Taylor -- a warlord who had raised whole armies of child soldiers -- as president of Liberia, I half-jokingly suggested to an aid worker that her group design a poster. It would show a young woman displaying the stump of her chopped-off arm. Below, it would say to American brides, "I can't wear a wedding ring so that you can."
I stopped buying the wife diamonds and she knows why.
Yeah buy as much AS stuff as you can. No regrets
Aside Dude, $450 for an engagement ring, If she's the one, you got forever, don't rush it.
