Turn it into a funny story. Find humour in it. If you’re happy in your marriage then that’s what matters!
My mom hated her proposal AND ring. We still make fun of my dad to this day… but you know what? They’ve been married for 33 years and are still SO in love and SO happy.
My dad got his PARENTS to buy the ring, they were gone all day and ended up being really late. It was my mom’s birthday and my dad was pacing all night around the apartment. My mom eventually went to sleep. My dad WOKE her up to propose with the UGLY ring my grandparents had purchased.
She doesn’t wear the ring, for many years she wore her grandmothers ring and for their 25th anniversary he got her a nicer ring (which honestly, was probably about $100).
But that’s my dad.. he’s not romantic, but what is romantic is that he is head over heels in love with my mom. His love language is time spent together, and he will do anything and everything to plan time for them together.
Just find the perspective in who you are together. What’s your husband’s love language? It obviously isn’t in gifts!
