Women Choose House Over Engagement Ring?

Hmm….I guess perhaps given the tough economic times we have seen over the past few years, people are becoming more practical and responsible when it comes to spending money.  Proof of this is in the results of a recent survey of  couples in  “committed relationships”, conducted on behalf of  ERA Real Estate,  in which almost 50% of women surveyed said that rather than have a big engagement ring they would rather put the money toward a down payment on a home.   Score 1 for the REALTORS and a big splat for the jewelers.  The survey also revealed that 60% of the lovebirds said they would give up a honeymoon to instead use the money for a down payment on a home.

Guys…before you spend that money on the engagement ring, read the article above, then click here to find the home to spend the money on instead :)
