Terms of Engagement


By Alex Colvin

Guess how much my boyfriend spent on my engagement ring? No, seriously, guess a number. Now guess lower. I don’t care how low a number you picked. The actual figure is lower. I guarantee it.

Guess even lower. Seriously, cut your guess in half. You’ll need to. We are talking about a single-digit amount here. Ready? Okay … $7.49

Yes, really. Seven dollars and forty-nine cents. Canadian. And he was really proud of himself for finding such a great deal. And I said yes for some reason. My mother, through a pained and forced grin, said, “Stainless steel! How practical.”
