Lumpy52403 replied to O'Neal's discussion Engagement Rings?
"I agree with Liam's suggestions, especially the second one. Also, in my opinion, the often-quoted "two months of salary" guideline is absolute nonsense.  I didn't spend anywhere near that much for my wife's engagement…"

Lumpy52403 replied to Shane Dyck's discussion Man-Space: House Design for the Manly
"Here's an idea for your man-space: go on eBay and find an antique map of your home state/province, then have it framed.  Old maps are very masculine, great conversations starters, and fairly inexpensive."
