My husband put my ring on layaway in January 2012, bought it may 2012 and proposed September 2012. But we had also been talking marriage for about 3 years too. He was still in school and wanted to finish.

@Shandi1:  This is a great start!!  If he’s asking for your style, he may already have money saved up for it.  Then again, he may be making conversation.  My fiance asked me about styles over a year ago and didn’t propose for another 16 months!

Not to be too obvious, I sent my mom and best friend pics of styles and ideas, and when it came time he consulted them.  It was a good plan! 

It’s hard, but try to relax b/c it’s obvious he want to surprise you.  Also, it takes a while to put a ring together (sometimes).  We also went on a big trip for my 30th b’day and I thought, THIS IS IT!!!  But he felt it was too obvious.  He admitted he thought about it, but wanted that trip to be about my big 3-0 and a separate occasion for our engagement. 

I can tell you this…it’s coming!!  His head is definitely in the right place!! Wink

@Shandi1:  that’s exciting! My SO and I knew we wanted to get arried early on but didn’t actually purchase the ring until last month (still waiting on a proposal!). I picked the ring out a year ago but we were not in a good spot to get engaged seeing as how I went to grad school and he is finishing his BA. Good luck and I hope you get your proposal soon!

@Shandi1:  my fiancé and i started discussing marriage after about 3 months…and he never had a ring convo with me because my best friend works for a private jeweler. we got engaged 2 weeks before our 2 year anniversary. i was on my toes for at LEAST a year…and he loved every minute! HAHA!

DH and I started talking about marrying each other way before we actually got engaged. We knew we wanted to marry each other, but there were a few things in life we wanted to do first. Biggest thing was finishing school, then we wanted to buy a house. I gave him my ring size about a year before he proposed. I told him the kind of ring I wanted way before then. 

So it really depends on your situation. If he feels he’s completely ready now, then it may come soon. If he wants to take his time, perhaps save up for a ring, it may take longer.
