Buying an expensive wedding ring shows love but isn't necessary. To show love to someone you don't need to buy them expensive items. Buying 100,000 wedding rings could feed thousand of people who are hungry looking for food on the streets. Also by buying it you don't know what may happen in the future and when you die the ring is lost while you know u helped feed someone and made them happy. What also is important its better helping thousands of people than helping just one

The affirmation is presenting a case that is a false dichotomy that is self-exclusive: if you buy wedding rings, you are not helping millions and if you don't then you are helping the millions.

Most people would not help the starving people of the world, even if they had not bought wedding rings, because they find themselves to be the most important entities in the world.

It is worth buying wedding rings because you are expanding your worldview from your personal self to the outer world (the person that you love); if you did not buy wedding rings, you would only have a narrow worldview that only cares about what you want (savings do not benefit African children).

The affirmation says instead of buying wedding rings we need to buy aid for starving children, and I agree; but that's not what the resolution is. Is it worth buying wedding rings? Yes, because it is better than nothing that will happen if you don't.
