Last Christmas my boyfriend gave me a promise ring. I rarely take it off and I love it to pieces. I was excited when he told me what he got it for, ” To promise someday we will marry” But what my problem is now is that I’m not to sure he even wants to get married. I feel somewhat weird wearing the ring. Is that wrong of me?
If I bring up marriage in any way he kind of brushes it off or rolls his eyes. I feel like he just gave me the ring to keep me quite. What should I do? I feel as though I should give it back to him but I don’t want to hurt his feelings or give him the wrong idea.

How long have you been together?
How old are you two?
It sounds like he is quite immature, which makes me think you are younger. If you’re not in a relationship where you can healthily discuss your future plans together, it’s probably not a relationship that needs to end with a marriage.

I got a “promise ring” from my husband (then boyfriend) for our first Christmas together. He proposed over 7 years later! Lol! Every situation is different, and I didn’t want to get married until I had my Masters degree and he knew that.
If I were you I would just tell him what is on your mind and let him know that it hurts your feelings when he rolls his eyes.

@crayfish: We’re both in our 20’s. We’ve been together a little over a year and we’re always talking about our future together but whenever I bring up getting married or even engaged for that matter he just huffs it off or laughs at me as if I’m not being serious about it. It’s not like I want him to propose to me tomorrow or anything there’s time for that and I can wear a promise ring for another few years but I don’t even know if I should be wearing it when I come to believe he isn’t true about the reason behind it, yea know?
