A diamond is forever, but divorce too. It seems that if the engagement ring is very expensive,greater is the danger of separation of spouses. One aspect that should worry Alamuddin Amal, now Mrs. George Clooney, since his engagement ring cost 550,000 euros. Not to mention Angelina Jolie, who has just married to Brad Pitt after receiving a ring from 200 thousand euro.The separation between Lady Gaga and Taylor Kinney (ring with diamond in a heart shape from 55 thousand euro) could prove it. But the greatest risk is for Beyoncé, who has a ring as 5 million dollars. Sounding the alarm have been two American researchers from Emory University in Atlanta, who have put under the microscope more than 3 thousand married couples in the United States. Andrew Francis and Hugo Mialon have come to the conclusion that if men choose an engagement ring between 1,500 and 3,200 euro the risk of divorce is 1.3 times higher than average. The two researchers have considered it as a average cost for the ring 1,500 euro. Not only: the increased risk of separation is achieved when the engagement ring is over 20 thousand dollars, about 15 thousand euro. Women receiving a ring so valuable have 3.5 times more likely to divorce than those who had the gift of a solitaire between 5 thousand and 10 thousand dollars.
So you have to be “Scottish” to save your marriage? Not at all: couples who have spent less than 400 euro for the engagement ring have higher divorce rates. In short, the ring finger is good: just do not overdo it.
