hubby:  A connection to the engagement ring? Honestly, I think you are both over thinking it. Really, its just jewelry. You’d be just as engaged/married without it. If you like it, that should be enough for him. He doesn’t have to wear it.

Yeah I had that. The ring I had before my current one was one I loved but Fiance disliked it. I felt bad because he didn’t tell me until a month after it was bought. Had I known I would have chosen something we both liked. Unfortunately I lost that ring but Fiance and I both picked out the new ring and suffice to say we both love it.

my DH is more emotionally attached to my ring that I am.  I love my ring, I picked it out, but he’s very attached to THIS ONE, it’s the one he bought me and proposed with and a replacement wouldn’t be the same to him.  I love it, but it’s a ring.  He’s more important to me.  But I get it, so I respect his feelings about it and I’m super careful with it to keep him happy 🙂

No,  I would not want him to tell me he didn’t like it after I already owned it. The time to share his dislike would be before the ring was purchased.  

If my Fiance tried to take the ring I love back and change it for something he liked better against my wishes,   I would be having none of it. I might even reconsider the relationship,  because it would show that he put his happiness above mine.

The most important thing is that the person who is actually wearing the ring every day loves it, and that it represents your commitment.
