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.

Don’t marry this guy. It doesn’t sound like he treats you well or makes you happy. He’s a cheater and emotionally absent, and that isn’t likely to change. You deserve better for you & your kid.

Buy yourself your own fabulous ring if you want something sparkly on that hand.

That does not sound like a good situation overall. A ring is nice, but it doesn’t guarantee anything at all. He can still cheat on you with a ring on your finger.
