The blog Venus with Love put together a map showing how much money men in each state spend on engagement rings.

The findings show that North Dakota has the sixth highest average cost for engagement rings at $8,616.

The average man in North Dakota spends 1.80 times his monthly salary for an engagement ring.

Our neighbors to the South spend the least amount on engagement rings. South Dakota men spend an average of $1,251 on engagement rings or 0.27 times the amount of an average South Dakota man's monthly salary.

Maybe in South Dakota they make up for it with the money they spend on the wedding itself. That information was not immediately available.
