- Wedding: January 2010
A ring is not going to provide commitment or security (or make him commit, either). A ring to show off to other people that you are “taken” is not a reason to be engaged or married. You have thought about leaving, yet you still want a ring.
This whole thing is a mess. I am sorry, but it is. Your mom is plain wrong, and this should be the honeymoon period, even with the added stress of a baby. It should not be this much WORK for things to just work between you.
You can still co-parent without being together. Honestly, from what you describe, I think you would be better off looking at that option.
