Dear Queenie,

  My fiancé has been having some business problems and when we got engaged all he could afford was an inexpensive little ring. He promised to give me a more elegant one when things get better, but I don’t care how expensive the ring is, I love the man for himself, not for the gifts he gives me.

  But, Queenie, what do I say to people who make remarks about how cheap my engagement ring is?—Happy fiancée  


Dear Fiancée,

  Just smile and tell them how lucky you are to be engaged to such a wonderful man, and the ring is exactly what you wanted.
