I want my fellow EM docs opinion. I would post elsewhere but I’m an EM doc so want my fellow colleagues opinion. Made a throw away for this. Uncomfortable topic about money. I luckily met the love of my life. I am a 2017 residency grad and never met my “forever” in Med school or residency. I now have met that person. Little backstory. We met as friends about 2 months after I got out of residency. Had a lot of chemistry but never really explored it. Just hung out as friends. About 4 months of being really good friends before we started dating. Now have been dating for 9 months. I am starting to think about the engagement in a few months. I’m 31 she is 30. She’s pretty middle of the road. She’s not extravagant nor “cheap”. What would be a reasonable budget to throw down for an engagement ring? I don’t want to go overboard but don’t want to be a cheap ass either. We have a really good relationship and she does a freaking ton for me. Just want her to feel loved and appreciated. That whole 2 months of salary online seems a bit unreasonable.
