    Fiance loves the idea of wearing a ring to let the world know that we are committed. He’s wearing his wedding band now, happily and proudly.  I’m thrilled every time I see it on his finger.

    @Stargaze31:  My Darling Husband bought his wedding band a full 13 months before we got married and wore it every day up until the rehearsal dinner. I thought it was a combination of cute/strange at first, but I figure he should just do whatever makes him happy!

    I bought him a really nice RHR as a gift for our wedding day and had it engraved with our wedding date and “All my love.” It worked out nicely 🙂

    Looks like im completely on the opposite end of the ring spectrum. Fiance won’t wear an e-ring and its hard enough convincing him to wear a wedding ring. He’s just not the type to wear anything. I’m lucky if he wears a watch on special occasions! 

    Anyone Have a man like mine?

    I bought his wedding band when I had the money a few months back and he wanted to wear it right away. I like that he loves his ring that much. Whatever works for the couple. I think it’s odd that some people think its super weird!

    I really like the idea and I think he would feel comfortable wearing a man-gagement ring! I’d have to talk more with him about it,though.

    I got my fiance a traditional Ghanaian engagement ring because we both did missions over there, and the last time I went, i kind of knew he was going to propose to me when I got back to the states! 🙂 It is made out of an unknown metal (copper is definitely in there), and it cost less than $1 USD, but it’s super sentimental to us. He doesn’t wear it because it’s really uncomfortable, but I thought it would be a beautiful thing to do for him, and for us to have together.

    I actually asked Fiance if getting a ring would be weird. I wanted him to wear something too! He said he would feel weird.

    I was speaking with a coworker who is about to propose to his lady (!!! I even helped give my opinion on the ring!) and he said he wants a ring for himself! He said it didn’t need to be anything fancy, but he wants to be seen as taken too.

    My Fiance wears one, I love it! It’s a plain white gold band. We will get him an actual wedding band for the wedding and marriage. The man-gagement ring he’ll prolly wear on the other hand after the wedding.

    omglauren yup my Fiance is like yours! He doesn’t wear jewelry at all normally.

    Like another bee mentioned, my Fiance actually has almost a phobia about rings! He says they feel like they’re suffocating his finger, and he PANICS if it doesn’t slide off with zero resistance. He even freaks out if he sees me wiggling off my own snug-fitting rings. I tell him that’s how rings are supposed to fit but he finds it absolutely terrifying to think it could get stuck.

    We proposed to each other, so I did give him an inexpensive ring because he said he would like to wear it on a chain around his neck, and he does. He actually has picked a wedding band that he likes and says he will try hard to get comfortable with it, but I have to prepare myself to not be upset if he can’t wear it. Logically it doesn’t matter to me and I know it doesn’t make his committment any less, but I’m still not quite over the slight refexive upset-ness :/

    I would have loved to get one for my hubby; however, he hates wearing jewelry and can’t even stand wearing a wedding band (though he does).  I say if you Fiance is on board, go for it!!

    I don’t see what’s so weird about it :/

    It symbolizes that you’re engaged to be married which is hardly a strange thing for someone who is engaged to be married to do. I don’t see how it’s any different than a woman wearing a ring. 

    I’m a little sore about this subject since my fiance wears a ring because I mentioned that I thought it was sweet when guys wore engagement rings and he’s recieved negative and judgemental feedback from co workers.

    We see the value of getting a ring due to work related reasons. Still, my husband said outside of a claddagh ring, he wouldn’t have worn a man-gagement ring. He said it would have been like opening presents before Christmas day and would have preferred to save it for the wedding ring on the wedding day itself.

    @Stargaze31:  I think it’s cute that he is so eager to be married to you and so happy to be engaged. I don’t hate the idea, it just seems a little odd to me because it’s very abnormal. I don’t think it would be for my fiance but I certainly won’t begrudge anyone’s happiness over something so trivial.
