I just found out that when my parents got engaged, not only did my dad not have a ring, but he was not on one knee, and they were fighting! Mom says it went something like this,
“You wouldn’t marry me anyhow.”
“You’re right, I wouldn’t.”
“Wait, why not??”
“Because! I just wouldn’t!”
HAH! That made my day. They went ring shopping the next week and Mom picked out what she wanted (and what they could afford). I think it’s just cool to know that with such an ‘unconventional’ proposal, they’re still together 20 years later!
