- Wedding: May 2014
He told me he just sold the engagement ring that he proposed to his ex with. Which was a bit of a shock to me for two reasons:
1) I didn’t know he still had said engagement ring. I figured that would be something someone sells after being told “No, I’m leaving you for someone else. I complained that you wouldn’t commit hoping that you’d be the one to initiate the break up.” But apparently he held on to it for the past 7 nearly 8 years.
2) The reason he told me is he wanted me to know that he was planning to use it as a down payment on a ring for me. I kind of wanted to scream at him at this point. Yes, it is true I did not want a ring he originally bought for his ex. But in my mind selling an engagement ring should mean being able to buy a new one. And even though I don’t care about the quality of ring he does. So I have to wait for him to save more money to buy a nicer ring apparently (I blame his mother. Though she does have some beautiful jewelry.).
So I’m still waiting and suspect that I will be for a while but when he randomly announces things like this it certainly gives me hope.
