A bride to be is being called out online after she took to Facebook to complain about the engagement ring her fiancé proposed with.

“My boyfriend finally asked me to marry him and this is really what he gives me…” she began her post. “I definitely wish it was something different, but oh well… It was his grandmothers and the pearl is my birthstone and I think that’s the only reason I’ve been able to tolerate it.”

After posting to Facebook, someone took a screenshot of her complaint about the sentimental family heirloom and posted it to Reddit under r/trashy.

“Hope that guy takes the ring back and runs,” said the top rated comment on the site.

“I am going to pretend he’s getting another ring so she’ll give him back his grandmother’s ring,” wrote another. “Then he can bolt without losing a sentimental item.”

Some understood where she was coming from with the ring, but not her actions.

“I mean you can have a different wedding ring than your engagement ring,” someone pointed out.

“It’s a terrible engagement ring (pearls are soft and should only be worn occasionally) but don’t post to Facebook about it,” a commenter wrote. “I hope he realizes she will be doing this with all their problems and that’s super unhealthy.”
