After letting the subject build to a bursting point for the past year, SO and I finally had a good long talk about getting married. Turns out we want the same things, and we both thought that the other thought the complete opposite of what we really feel!
And, I learned he is truly clueless about the entire business of engagement and how to go about it.
He thought that the engagement ring gets swapped out for the wedding ring after you get married. Until I told him that they get worn TOGETHER, he had a hard time wrapping his head around why to even get one.
He has no idea who is “supposed to” pick out the ring, how they’re supposed to be given, or what.
The boy is completely clueless and I am SO RIDICULOUSLY HAPPY ABOUT IT. All this time I thought he didn’t want to talk about it because it wasn’t something he wanted. Instead, it just turns out he’s just completely ignorant of the subject (but willing to learn!)
Just thought I’d share my *Happy mood*. So little of it on the waiting board 🙁

Awww! Don’t worry. Those clueless moments will just keep coming! 😉 (Okay, okay, I’m kidding…) Such a cute story, and how wonderful that you guys were able to discuss it and realize you both wanted the same thing. Congrats! 🙂

Aww! It’s such a nice feeling to know you’re on the same page. My fiance was the exact same way with being totally clueless, I thought it was so cute.

He asked about engagement rings, our convo went something like this:
Him: How does the guy know what ring to get?
Me: Well….either he just picks one on his own, or the couple goes looking at rings and she gives a top 3 or whatever for him to choose from, or she tells him exactly what she wants and he gets it.”
Him: *eyeing me suspiciously* I’d want to get something you would definitely like, so I guess you would pick it out first. But where’s the suprise in that?
Me: The surprise in how and when it’s given! The surprise is in the proposal!
Him: …You mean I don’t just hand it over right after I buy it?
I proceeded to hit him. lol.

I honestly thought that my SO did NOT want to get married. Boy, was I wrong. It so good that you guys discussed it and you are on the same page 🙂 What a cute story!

Yay! How exciting!
Yeah a few years ago my guy thought that there was JUST an engagement ring. He though the engagement ring was the same thing as the wedding band.
I had to explain to him that no that the women get two rings… he was so confused why I got two rings and he got one. It was cute.
He knows now though! 😀

My FI sort of knew about the two rings but he always asked why he had to buy two, lol. And he wants an e-ring too.
I had a thread going about all the funny things FIs say during wedding planning… men can be pretty clueless about weddings. It just gets better 🙂

Yay! How exciting! Maybe he’ll start looking things up on the internet to get the ball rolling but it’s awesome he asked you about it.
My boyfriend has been the complete opposite… He schooled himself in the “4C’s” before he took me ring shopping- he knew more about diamonds than I did. From what I know he’s planned everything out and even scripted what he’ll say when he talks to my parents.

@pharmy: Maybe he’s playing.. you know, to kind of distract you. If not, that’s really adorable though! 🙂 Wouldn’t that be funny if he already had the ring?! Could be a possibility (hehe sorry don’t mean to add fuel to the fire).
