I buy jewelry for mine, and I understand when she doesn't wear it all the time. After all, I have 5 suits, pretty nice ones. I've only worn 2 of them, both times to funerals. They can't wear all of it all the time, same as how I can't wear all my suits all the time.

I never got the whole jewerly thing. Your paying hundreds of dollars for a sparkly stone and shiney metal. I don't have a wife, but when I do, one thing is for sure, I'll probable have to give in and buy some for her.

At least there is a bright side to it (other then making her happy), if she ever says "do you really need another gun", you can say "do you really need another necklace", and I'll bet that she changes the subject really quickly.

Your on the right track man, it's a good thing to just go ahead and pick up some jewelry for a lady if you end up married to her, and here's a hint- It doesn't always have to be expensive (unless you end up married to a shallow woman) but some of the best seems to be the cheapo pretty stuff that marks an occasion, like the little kid figurine necklaces for mother's day.

But, don't try argue your way into another gun... it's easier to ask forgiveness than permission, and you rarely win an argument with a woman. Even when your right, your still wrong.

I don't argue with mine anymore. I tell her "This is what I want, and here's what I would like to give you, and if we can afford it, I want to do it." And she does the same too me. It works out pretty well I think. We avoid a lot of petty BS like arguing over new diamonds or more ammo...

As a married man I can tell you that talking to her like that may stop her in her tracks. But you'll be handling your "gun" alone for quite some time...

This is true. I am not a huge jewelry wearer, but I have a few nice necklaces handed down by my relatives and have a nice pair of earrings that I bought myself. I only wear the necklaces on special occasions because they are irreplaceable in sentiment and I would hate for one to get damaged or lost doing everyday activities. (One belonged to a late great-aunt who shares my birthstone and the other was given by my late grandfather [whom I never got to meet] to my late grandmother upon the birth of their first child.) The earrings I don't wear all the time because I am afraid I might lose them at work or while outside mowing, etc. If/when I get married, I will only be wanting two pieces of jewelry (engagement ring and wedding ring.)

I guess you can never win then. Oh well. I guess I'll take trips advice and ask for forgiveness insted of permission.

When I bought her engagement ring it came with another ring and kinda snapped together '' cheap ass '' but I got it from one of good customers who needed boat work done and just happen to own 2 jewelry stores . When it came time to buy the wedding ring I just gave her the other half of the engagement ring LMAO . bets 300.00 bucks ever

I have been married longer than most of you guppies have been alive and I conclude you guys really need some help here!
First of all YOU are never going to understand how your Lady's mind works no not ever-ever!! She appreciates jewelry like you do guns no matter how ludicrous this seems to you! Nothing you can say is going to change this so lets move on! She likes jewelry and I'm assuming you like lingerie (I do) so make this a win win get her both and have her model them at the same time! This has never failed to keep campfire lit in fact it has kept the flame kindled for a long time now.
Hey next time you gups need a little fatherly advice give a yell.
