That ring did not look that expensive. I wouldn't want to wear anything that expensive - and don't. I have a lovely artisan ring that wasn't too expensive (just over $100) - used it as an engagement ring, and then it became my wedding ring. I'm low maintenance when it comes to jewelry. The bill was just what wasn't covered by his insurance. I'm sure it cost a lot more than that. (Googled and the first site I clicked was American Addiction Centers which says "Though program costs will be variable, one might expect standard inpatient addiction treatment facilities to cost between $14,000 and $27,000 for a 30-day program." I'd guess at a nice-looking place like Eddie was at, in a major urban area like Boston, it might be on the higher end.) I wouldn't even want an engagement ring at all (I would wear a wedding band, though). I always say I'd rather get a puppy. People think I'm joking. (I don't wear much jewelry, anyway, and it's mostly earrings and necklaces, not that I've had much occasion to wear those in the last year.) 5 minutes ago, historylover820 said: Or if you want to spend $7,000 on me? Buy my inexpensive ring, then put the rest on my student loans. That would cut my current student loan balance in half. Heh, I don't have student loans anymore, but 7K is a little under half of what I originally borrowed (25+ years ago; I cringe at the thought of what I would have to borrow if I was going to my college now). It's roughly 9 months of my mortgage, though. Or it would just about pay off what I have left on my car, twice. 2 Link to comment
