My FI just told me that he wants me to buy him an engagement ring. He said that i wear his ring to show that he is committed to me, and he should wear one to show that i am committed to him. Ive never heard of this before. I want to make him happy though. Am i supposed to actually propose, or do i just give him the ring? Does he use the same ring for his wedding ring, or do i need to buy him a new one for the wedding?

My friend (male) had an engagment ring. They just bought a cheap ring that he wore on his left ring finger after they got engaged. He got his expensive ring when they got married. She did not propose to him.

If you’re taking his name… I’d offer to get him an engagement ring if he takes your name instead :).

My FI wants one too! I love it, I think it’s adorable and sweet and since we are having a long engagement, he wants something to show that he is in a commited relationship. When he proposes I guess I’ll just carry his ring with me to give to him when he does? It might get a little complicated, but I’m sure it will work out. I’ve actually started looking at rings for him and he is super picky, go figure! We are getting less expensive e-rings, and upgrading bands and my ering when we get married and finances are a bit more stable, so at that point I think he’ll wear the ering I get him on his right hand, or another finger 🙂

My FI wears one, but we picked it out and bought it the same day we found mine. 🙂 I think it’s great when guys want to do that! I didn’t propose to him with it. You could make it a little bit special, but if proposing back to him makes you uncomfortable, just give it to him in a nice box over dinner or something.

I got him an engagement watch. it didn’t show the outward commitment, but it was kind of a “thank you for committing” thing, and he deserves something nice too

I bought hubby a man-gagement ring. Actually, I bought him two, as the first was tungsten, he dropped it and it shattered!
Hubby was adamant he got a ring- plus he got an engagement camera. Spoiled man, that husband of mine 😉

I bought my fiance a Claddagh ring because of all that it represents and to show our commitment to each other. Plus he bought me a gorgeous ring and I wanted him to have one too.

Ah I hate my phone, it always earases my responses when I try to respond through my phone app.
I got my SO an engagement ring, engraved also. He wanted one and now wants to keep that one as his wedding band. He doesn’t want to take it off lol, which is really sweet. I didn’t necessarily propose to him because well we were already engaged. I thought it would be cute to ask him also so I did and I put the ring on his finger, such a nice memory we both have.

My SO wears an engagement ring (on his right hand). It is actually his wedding band. He just wears it on his right hand, and he will switch hands when we are marrired.
(It’s very nice that he wants to do this.)

That’s cute. I “owe” my fiance an engagement watch – but keep finding excuses to wait to save the money up. I definitely won’t propose with it and am not sure if you should propose with a ring – I don’t think it’s necessary though but is up to you if you want to.
