    Two of my guys I knew started wearing rings when they got engaged.  I mentioned it to my Fiance (before we were engaged) that I thought it was super cute. So he started wearinga ring when we got engaged.

    No way.  I’m going to have a hard time getting him to wear a wedding ring…

    He wants a “wedding watch”…

    We didn’t want to pay for an extra ring we didn’t have to.

    Just asked my fiance if he would wear an engagement ring if I got him one and he said yes so  fast I almost thought he didn’t hear what I asked. Apparently it’s a no brainer for him. lol

    @Stassney: lol YES my Fiance was like that too. He asked me if he could wear his wedding band now… he went as far as to ask if we could get married now and have a vow renewal at the wedding… he just wants people to know he’s taken I guess.

    I’ve never even heard of this until right now.

    I don’t think it is something my Fiance would be into as he is kind of having a hard time getting used to the idea of wearing a ring once we are married. I’m going to have to get his opinion of course, so I will be back.

    Not that I expect him to be wearing it much as I told him he is not aloud to wear it to work and risk ruining it. He works in the trades. He can just wear it when we go out and around the house if he wants.

    We will both wear engagement rings, and his will also function as a stand-in for his wedding band when he is traveling or being rugged otherwise.  I think it’s about time men started wearing them as well!

    yes my Fiance wears a silver band. It was his choice, I didn’t mind either way. He wanted the same symbol of commitment to show he was “taken” especially since we’re having a long engagement. I thought it was sweet. I’m getting him an upgraded ring for the ceremony.

    My dad got remarried a couple of years ago and his Fiance practically forced him to wear a “man-gagement” ring. She wanted to make sure no one touched her man…

    …I think it’s sweet if the guy wants one but kinda crazy if a girl forces him into it in order to “mark her territory”

    My Fiance wears one, and it was HIS idea.  I am sick of people making me out to be some sort of controlling monster who forced him to wear one.  He was the one who mentioned it first, and that he wanted to symbolize his commitment by wearing a ring, just like I do.  I think it is a sweet idea.

    I bought him an inexpensive tungsten carbide ring after he propsed, and his wedding band is gold.  He hasn’t quite decided what to do with his “mangagement” ring after the wedding yet, but for the cost, it’s not a terribly huge deal if he decides not to wear both.

    My Fiance wears the claddagh ring (it’s a band with the claddagh in it) that I bought for him when we were dating.  He does wear it on his left hand now (turned outward). I never intended for it to be an engagement ring but it kind of ended up being that!
