    @Nikki_Woodstock:  I think you’re creating a false binary. My FH and I discussed marriage throughout our relationship and checked in with each other to ensure we were on the same page. When we did decide that it was the right time to get legally married (we’re already common law), we discussed it at length pragmatically. We talked about whether we wanted an engagement ring, tried them on together, talked with our families, and made our plans. It was all no muss and no fuss as you put it. But the super romantic surprise factor? That’s still coming. After we decided to get engaged, my guy started planning a “proposal” with the fancy diamond ring. I don’t think that overshadows the commitment to spend ones life together, but just formally establishes the intention to do so.
