    I never got a promise ring, but FI and I were together for a little less than a year before he proposed. I’ve never had a problem with it since I’m not much of a jewelry person anyway (even though it’ll take a whole lot to pry my e-ring off my finger)

    I voted for No and engaged because there wasn’t an option for no and married. Maybe it’s weird I still come on here often even after the wedding? 😛

    I totally always wanted a promise ring, but my husband simply isn’t the type to think of getting me something like that. I wish I had mentioned it, because he is the type that needs a little help thinking of things in that department. Oh well 😛

    I don’t have a promise ring and I did ask my SO for one in Febuary, but he said he was getting my ring this year so there was no need for a promise ring 🙂 We’ve been together almost 2.5 years

    Nope no promise ring. We were only together for 2 years before getting engaged though. The people I typically see with them are people who have been together for quite awhile and just haven’t been able to get engaged yet (for whatever reason).

    Me and FI have been together since our senior year in hs (9 years now) and he gave me a promise ring after 2 years of dating and we are now engaged!

    I had a promise ring before I married my EXH (cheating douche)-we were together 3 years before we got married.

    My DH got me a heart necklace before we were engaged but we were only together 9 months before he proposed and married a year later.

    No promise ring here, and we were engaged after 5 years together

    Promise rings really really aren’t a big thing where I’m from and other places I’ve lived in Canada (as in, I don’t know anyone who has received one). I think it might be more regional and in the US?

    @alotlikelove:  I did not even think of getting a promise ring.  Then-BF lavaliered me (giving me his fraternity’s letters, which I made a necklace with) after dating for 2 years, then proposed 2 months later.

    I was 21 when we met & he was about to turn 23. Too old to be given a promise ring.

    No, and it would’ve baffled me. I don’t understand how promise rings are different than engagement rings. FI feels the same.

    We were together for 8.5 years before he proposed.  He never gave me a promise ring – I honestly don’t really understand the purpose of them (it’s a pre-engagement ring??).  He did give me a necklace and a pair of diamond stud earrings, and an expensive designer purse he knew I wanted (as well as several less significant gifts) over the years.  I never wanted a promise ring.

    @MrsBeck:  I had this weird moment when my wedding was winding down where I thought, “Oh no! I will never be able to wear this veil again.” Or my dress for that matter. I guess coming here helps me retain some of that amazing feeling and remind me of my special day. 😀
