So, dinner and a movie last night (Black Swan, highly recommend). We got our tickets and then he said he wanted to stop at the store where he got my ring to look at wedding bands. We’re not getting married till May of 2012, but I figured “what the hell, why not?” He tries a few on, finds one he likes, and then…
FI: “I want to get my wedding band right away.”
Me: “Like, now? We have plenty of time until the wedding sweetie, you don’t need to worry about ordering it right away.”
FI: “Well, I already consider us married and I want to start wearing it right away even though you think it’s weird.”
Me: “I think it’s a little unorthodox, but not weird. Do whatever makes you happy sweetie.”
Alright, so it might take a tiny bit of symbolism away from the ring exchange at the ceremony, but can I really complain about my man’s enthusiasm about wearing his wedding band? I think not 🙂 He won’t be able to wear it much as it is, but I still think it’s sweet that he’s jumping on the “married man” bandwagon right away. Can I get a collective “Awwwwwwwwwww!!!!”
EDIT: Yes, I’m adding a poll. No, I’m not giving any “not cute” options because I think it’s cute and that’s that:)

@SoontobeMrsA: Dang! Totally should have put that one on the poll 🙂
@MamaHusky3: They’re such suckers, aren’t they? And to think he’s basically a professional tough-guy for a living. What a sofite 😀

When my SO and I talk about getting engaged he has always said he wants to wear a man engagement ring. I thought that he was so sweet!

Mine did the same thing! I love it!
It took him 7 years to come around, but I am glad he came around! haha
I surprised him with it for our 7 year anniversary! He was ecstatic, I loved it!

Hooray for Black Swan! I saw it earlier today and was blown away. And lol, your guy is totally cute. 🙂 DH wanted to wear his right away, too…he’d take it out of the box and look at it at least once a day.

I voted unintelligible baby talk because I do that all the time – when I talk to my BF, to our cat, to pictures of cute animals. 😀 But how sweet is he? Adorable!

Why don’t you get him an engagement ring…just a plain ring that he can wear now, and get a nicer ring to exchange for the ceremony.

@Mrs Grape: I LOVED the movie! I almost pursued a career in ballet (was unable to because of an injury), so I remember how catty and ridiculous it was sometimes.
@Loribeth: I had thought about that, but it doesn’t really matter to me whether or not he wears the wedding band right away. We even went so far as to looking at ones that he likes and our wedding isn’t for a year and a half! As long as it makes him happy, I’m fine with it 🙂

My FH wanted to wear a ring immediately after he proposed to me. I thought it was very sweet. Some people are thrown off by it: “Wait….you’re getting married? We thought you already were married! Well, you ARE wearing a ring!”. haha

@Birdie Love: LOL I know! We’ve been going through some of the things that are new when it comes to the whole engagement thing (ex: finances), and he keeps saying, “well, we’re married now so we have to talk about this stuff.” It’s cute that he’s so gung-ho!
He also revealed that he has been telling people we don’t know as well/don’t see often that I’m his wife for like 2 years now because “we’re basically already married!” Good to know honey, LOL.
