Confused
how is a purse the same as a promise of marriage/engagement ring?

unless this is turning into cynicism over the whole process.

do you know where you live? money is money and marriage ain't all that. 

the point is, you mentioned "financial initiative" like that meant something.  ok, he bought you a ring, is he gonna do right by you til death do you part? probably not.

I'd rather have a cheap ring & a good man, than an expensive fancy ring & a philandering husband.

it does mean something.  it shows a level of maturity and independence, just like saving up a down payment for your first house.  anyone can ask someone to help them buy something, but if it means that much to you, you handle it on your own.  that's like asking my mom to help with the purchase of a diamond bracelet for christmas...if i want her to have something nice, i'll work for it myself...or i can be lazy and impatient and ask for help.

if a couple is in serious financial strain and just can't wait then it makes sense for them but i'd rather experience the surprise and be shown that i was made a priority.  if it means .5 less carat on the diamond then that's totally fine.

LOL  i'm serious though...i don't expect anything earth shattering but i also don't expect something so small that it can double as a nose stud.  if he's proposing then he KNOWS.  i'm sentimental, i'll live with whatever for the most part.     ok that's kind of a lie...i have standards but he knows them.
