    nightstarzz: My DH wanted an engagement ring, for a lot of the same reasons you mentioned. However, had he not actually requested one, I honestly wouldn’t have taken it upon myself to get one for him. Also, I def would not have gotten down on one knee or have made a big production over it. I let him pick it out, I purchased it and he wore it. 

    I picked out and bought him a much nicer, white gold one for the actual wedding. He uses the e-ring as a day-to-day ring when he is doing manual labor (working), goes to the gym, etc. So, it has proven to at least be semi-practical.

    That sounds like a really sweet idea. I would give it to him like any other birthday gift – maybe on the morning while you’re still in bed, and let him open the box? And to make it different from his wedding band, how about something a bit different like a wooden band (lots on etsy!) or another way to make it unique? 

    I got my FI a watch as an engagement gift so he would have something like I have my e-ring.

    I got my FI an engagement ring and he loves it!  I bought him a ring made out of a meteorite and it’s pretty cool.  After the wedding he will have two rings and he can wear whichever one he feels like wearing that day.  I think it’s a good idea to get him one, it sounds like he’ll really enjoy it.  A lot of people do think my FI is already married and when he explains that I gave him an engagement ring too people say, “I’ve never heard of that.” or “That’s different.”  I always respond saying, “We’re both engaged so I thought it made sense we both got rings.”
