My boyfriend was given a family are heirloom (my grand mothers beautiful ring!!) he has had it for over two months, and hasnt given it to me, we just bought a house about 3-4 months ago and are ridiculasly perfect for each other, we adore eachothers families and friends, I am 26 and he is 28, so its not like we are playing young high school games…Why isnt he giving it to me???It id making me crazy and I think it is hurting my grandmother because she gave it to him thinking it would be instant…so everyday she calls and asks me, did he give it to you yet? I dont want to talk about it anymore because I am in fear it will just add another day on to the waiting tab…

It is definitely annoying when you know he has the ring and so does everybody else. It makes waiting soooo much harder! Could it be possible he is having it reset or cleaned? Or it could be like the rest of us waiting bees that he is waiting for the perfect moment and time to propose. I know its hard to be patient and you want to say hey where is my ring! 🙂 I am sure it will come when you least expect it.

I’m sure he is probably planning something perfect for you in the way of a proposal. Fiance had my ring (also a family heirloom) reset for me and even showed me the plastic mock-up that the jeweler made (SUCH a tease!) before he finally proposed. I know that it’s driving you crazy, but I swear, the best thing I ever did was NOT assume every night out or special occasion was going to end in a proposal. We went on TWO vacations (including Maui-hello, so romantic!) and several dinners out before he finally proposed, and I think if I was fixating on the proposal those fun times would have been disappointing to me.

Yikes! It sucks that your grandmother told you she gave it to him, that ruins the surprise! Maybe he’s waiting for the right time, and he hadn’t planned to give it to you so soon. She may have wanted him to propose right away, but in the end he decides when he’ll propose and how. My only advice would be to let him know she called. He may feel a little heat and get the hint (but don’t tell him she’s asking whether he proposed yet, that’s too much!).

i’m assuming that you’ve spoken to him about it then, but that definately sucks.
are there any special events coming up that you can see him maybe wanting to wait for? or would he need to have the ring resized or anything?
anyways! welcome to wedding bee!! can’t wait to hear updates, and hopefully it’ll be soon!

Yea, it is really hard with all of the pressure of our families constantly asking us about it, Christmas Eve and Christmas Day our families were together everyone came and stayed at our new house that we just bought because everyone is from out of town(it was long few days) anyway they were talking about it right infront of us like wew werent even there…we were sooooo embarrased!!! My mom was telling his Mom, have you seen the ring yet its georgous, and then proceeds to tell his mother that she has chosen the song that we are walking down the aisle too…lets just say we ended up drinking more than planned that night to calm our nerves from our inpatient mothers…our families love eachother and I know we will be really happy forever,I am trying not to lose faith in him it is just sooo frusterating, however he did tell my grandmother that he was going to do it in spring…(I know way to keep a secret grandma!!) He told her it wont be in a way that I would ever expect!!! well I am not expecting it in the year at this rate…ugggggg…lol
