Congrats on the pregnancy!

Have you talked about engagement and marriage prior to this?

Congrats on the pregnancy!

How did he feel about you buying the ring and demanding an engagement and pictures pre baby? 

If you’re trying to hide the fact you’re pregnant until you are engaged and have pictures done, it probably won’t work….

Eesh. Good luck!

Congrats on the pregnancy! Just curious though, did you discuss marriage before this? Also, why didn’t you allow your bf to chose and purchase your ring? 

I hope this all works out for you. However, men don’t like to feel pressured into marriage. Good luck!

Why are most of you who responded assuming that they had never discussed marriage or been on the brink of it? OP would not have bought the ring otherwise, give her some credit for being smart, ok? And I think she meant it lightly when she chose the word demanded. If he was all smiles, then he already knew he wanted to marry OP AND is ready to do so. A wise Bee knows that when a man is truly ready, she can speak up very directly. And congrats to you OP on the pregnancy!

littlechickie:  Because the original post by the OP did not have nearly as many edits, and the wording was indeed very strongly pushing towards the OP buying everything and setting up everything with what seemed to be little input from her FI. It could indeed be the case that they’ve discusssed it, etc etc, but it doesn’t come off that there was much discussion. Nothing wrong with requesting more information.

Yes I read this when it was first put up and chose not to comment because it seemed like it was going to become one of those crazy posts, But your right worded very differently. Extremely demanding.

You are going to propose, we are getting married, here is the ring your going to do it with.

I picked out and bought my ring for my last marriage.  He proposed without one stating I could pick it out.  I never loved it. 

Hopefully you two have discussed the dynamics of your relationship, it sounds like you have….. He’s perfect for you 🙂  Everyone deserves a happy and loving relationship.  Best of luck to you and HUGE congrats on the baby.

She’s pregnant with his kid. Whether they discussed marriage prior to this or not, he really should propose. I don’t know. To each their own?

whoa. holy. shit.  this seems CRAZY!  ” I informed him at our anniversary dinner last night that I bought my ring, we are getting engaged, and then we are getting engagement pictures taken, allllll before we tell our families about Baby.”

are you aware that this is not how it’s supposed to work? you come off as psycho.  Sorry.  if that’s not how it really is then you really need to settle down and just enjoy your pregnancy.  If he wants to propose he will. if he doesn’t he won’t.  can’t force someone.
