(WJW) — A woman recently took to the internet to express her confusion over having to help pay for her own engagement ring … without being asked.

“I was just taken aback and honestly put off by the fact that he is making me pay for a GIFT he gave to me,” she said in a Reddit post on the infamous “Am I the A——?” thread.

The 28-year-old woman said when her husband bought the $8,000 two-carat diamond ring and proposed, he did so with a payment plan. Then once they got married, and merged their finances, she soon realized the man was taking money from their joint account every month to make the payments.

“We have been having some arguments lately, and he feels that ring is a wedding expense and it’s only fair that I contribute towards it too, and that as a woman of this day I shouldn’t hesitate to be an equal partner,” she wrote in the post.

The wife described her wedding as having no frills, as the couple planned to save up for a house instead. She called her husband’s move “tacky” and explained he now wants her to apologize.

“If I knew my husband was going to be making me pay for the ring, I wouldn’t have agreed to ‘buy’ it,” she continued to write. “Mutual consent is essential when a couple is deciding to invest in an asset. Owning a house or a car jointly requires two yeses, and I certainly wouldn’t have said yes to jointly owning a ring he was SUPPOSED to give to me as a gift.”

While many of the commenters took the wife’s side of things, some also said her 30-year-old husband wasn’t doing anything wrong.

“What he did seems relatively… normal? Buying the kind of ring your partner wants and financing it if you’re saving up for a house seems pretty standard, definitely not a ‘plot to get back at you,'” one commenter wrote, noting the husband was in a “no-win situation.”

The wife said she is now asking her husband to return the ring.

The average cost of a wedding in the United States is around $30,000, according to a study by the Knot.
