Bride-to-be realizes fiancé proposed with his ex's ring

A woman looking for answers dmed Buzzfeed writer Stephen Laconte asking for advice following her recent engagement. “My boyfriend proposed to me with the same ring he gave his ex-fiancé. The ring was dirty and had obvious signs of normal wear and tear. Luckily, the ring doesn’t fit and would have to be sized. Instead of having it sized, I thought about taking the ring and having it redesigned to make a custom ring for me. I’ve accepted his proposal and I haven’t mentioned any of this to him. I don’t know how to approach him with my intentions". Most of the comments were furious at the husband for being cheap and not being honest with his new fiancée. One was summarized their thoughts succinctly: “Girl, throw the whole a** man away”. LaConte felt the same, writing that her boyfriend’s attempt to pass it off as a new ring was “a major red flag". Ultimately, LaConte advised the woman to ask her fiancé some tough questions, and then to ask herself a few as well. LaConte emphasized that if she does decide to stick with him, it’s important that she gets a ring she’s comfortable with
