The Ring Dilemma: Stepmom vs. Late Mom 💍🥊

Our protagonist faced a dilemma when planning his proposal to Kaylee. He knew she wanted her late mom's ring, but her stepmother, Ruth, wouldn't stop pressuring him to use her ring instead. After the proposal, Ruth confronted him and scolded him for not using her ring, claiming she's been a mother figure to Kaylee. Kaylee's dad and some family members sided with Ruth, but Kaylee herself was grateful for her fiancé's choice. Let's see what the internet thinks of this situation...🤔💭
