Going Dutch on the engagement ring?

Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) -

Traditionally, the man pays for the sparking engagement ring. But what do you think about the idea of the woman pitching in? It seems to be happening more and more. Some couples are splitting the cost.

Mark Turnowski is an engagement ring wholesaler and has been in business for 37 years. He said he has noticed that women are more involved than ever with buying their engagement ring. He said that if a woman wants a bigger ring that doesn't fit into the groom's budget, she will chip in.

In fact, Turnowski says many of the traditions are changing.

It all comes down to the couple and what works best for you.

    Making New York City more energy efficient

    More than half the population of New York City rides public transportation to work. No other metropolis in this country even approaches that percentage or the MTA's total number of riders. For that reason, New York likely ranks as the most energy-efficient city in the nation. But what would it take to make the city even more energy-efficient or even self-sufficient?
