More women helping pay for own engagement ring

Posted: Updated:
MINNEAPOLIS (KMSP) -

More and more women are helping pay for their own engagement rings.

A survey from bridal resource TheKnot.com found 46 percent of women are willing to help pay some of the cost. 54 percent said "no way."

Possible reasons for the growing trend:

- More couples share bank accounts before getting married
- A lot of women go with their boyfriends to pick out their engagement rings

Some people argue that the break in tradition is a sign that chivalry is dead. Join the debate at http://on.fb.me/19dAhHj
