Hey guys, good news if you are about to pop the question -- you might not have to spend that two months' salary.

According to a new study, the bigger the engagement ring, the smaller chance your marriage will last. So go ahead and buy your lady that rock so small you need a magnifying glass to see, then show her this story as your reasoning.

Researchers at Emory University in Atlanta found that men who spent between $2,000 and $4,000 on an engagement ring were 130% more likely to get divorced than fellas who spent between $500 and $2,000.

The study also found that people whose weddings cost more than $20,000 are 350% more likely to get divorced than people who spent less than $10,000 on their weddings.

Just for a reference, the average guy these days will spend $5,598 on an engagement ring and the average wedding is now $28,858. Well then, this explains it all!
