I’d turn it around, would you care if he didn’t like your ring?

I don’t think it really matters if we like “their” ring or not. They are the ones that are going to wear it, and we want them to be happy with it, so they will wear it.

Mine wanted a more orate ring too, and I thought for sure he would want something simple. The ring he picked out is very nice and is something he will be happy to wear, even though it might not have been the one I would have picked for him.

My Fiance is looking at ornate rings as well…I thought he’d prefer something simple but I guess not!  And I’m not a fan of the ornate rings either.  I’m just glad he will be wearing one at all!  He can’t wear it at work but I will make sure he has it on when we go out!!  I agree with Nexus-6……he didn’t pick out your ring because he liked it, he picked it out because you would like it since you are the one wearing it!

I don’t feel like you have to love it but I think you should make it a couple event. Try and put your opinion in a little or pick some out and see what he thinks. What he likes and doesn’t like. I picked my husbands ring out. I sent him pictures of it and he told me which one he liked better. I feel like you can go either way. You can either give him total control or you can make it equal control. Good luck!

I don’t like my Fiance wedding band at all. His is a titanium band that is a dark, slate color and it totally clashes with my white-gold band. But, its important that your Fiance likes his band, kinda like it’s important you like your engagement ring. So nope, it doesn’t matter if its your taste, just go with it girl! ;o)

You wouldn’t want his negative opinion on your wedding band, so I vote just accept whatever he decides to get!  He’s the one who has to wear it 🙂  Maybe after a while he’ll wish he had gone with something more traditional and want to trade it in, but if not, oh well…

He’s wearing it, it should be his decision.

If it were me, I would have to like it.  Luckily, we found a ring that both Fiance and I love.  If it matters to you, I would try to come to a compromise with something you are both okay with for him.

my husband’s is simple. he wanted flat and i like rounded. i didn’t tell him that i’m not a huge fan of flat, b/c he should get to have what he likes. now that it’s on his finger, i love it! i think what it symbolizes is the most important thing, and when i see it on him i just think of what it means, not how it looks.

My Fiance wants a diamond or three in his ring. I don’t mind the bling and it’s definitely better than his idea of getting a ring with crosses all over it!
