My fiancé and I have been together for almost 7 years, engaged for a year. We live together have shared finances. I know some you may not like the phrase “we are practically married”, but we are. Not much will change when we get married; I am hoping to keep my name! My Fiance never wears any jewelry except for a watch on occasion and has told me he doesn’t know how he will like wearing a ring because he doesn’t like anything on his fingers. I bought him a titanium ring on etsy as a practice ring. I guess you could call it an engagement ring. I know it is more common in Europe than it is in US. Does or did anyone’s fiancé wear a ring before you were married ? Fiance is skeptical to wear the ring to work basically anywhere unless I am with him. Is this totally weird? What are your thoughts regarding rings on guys before marriage?

@has31: I have bought my fiance a few rings on different occasions, such as birthdays & anniversarys, and he has worn them – up until they became a little too small. I don’t see anything wrong with a “mangagement ring”. 🙂

I bought a mangagement ring for my Fiance. He wears it every day. We have not figured out what will happen next month when we swap it for the wedding ring though.

@has31: My guy demanded an engagement ring. He works in the trades, so that is his everyday ring and then we have a *nice* one for after we get officially married and he isn’t at work.
He loves wearing it all the time and refuses to take it off, ever. He calls me his wife already (we are common law).

Mr. Lk wore his engagement ring every single day. Once he started wearing it, he said he felt weird without it.

Thanks ladies! I figured a mangagement ring was not so strange. Fiance was excited that I bought the ring but now that it is actually here, he is skeptical to wear it. My Fiance is a high school teacher so I guess he could get asked a bunch of questions….
