A lady took to micro-blogging site (Twitter) to expressed her frustration on her desperate marriage proposal.
She wrote: I bought an engagement ring for my her boyfriend to propose only for him to end up selling it to fix his car.
Malondi said she bought an engagement ring and gave her man because he had mentioned he couldn’t buy it for her because he had no money, only for him to sell it off and use the money to fix his car.
I bought an engagement ring for him to propose, because he once told me he couldn't afford to buy one for me. He took the ring, pawned it and fixed his car.
I'm still breathing through the wound!🌚 https://t.co/koeLZ0OSON

She how her followers replied:
“No matter how bad the financial situation is, somethings a man has to do on his own. I’m sorry you went through that though.”
“Dont do that next time, you dont buy a ring for a man, when he wants to propose he will definitely have money to get a ring for you even if it’s a cheap one.”
“But baby… why didnt you want to stay unmarried? How did you think a guy that can’t afford a mere engagement ring would fulfill their patriarchal ordained duties of providing.”
“No matter what, dont compel a guy to commit you..be it being pregnant for him or paying your bride price for him or buying engagement ring for him… Dont even show him you want to be his wife until he shows that he wants you to be his wife.”
