I got my Fiance an engagement fishing pole! Ha. It’s what he wanted, and wouldn’t have spent on himself. So I did!

yes.  FH wears a black tungsten ring daily and has a nice rose gold & titanium ring for the wedding day and fancy events.

My Fiance is going to start wearing his wedding ring as an “engagement ring” once he buys it. I didn’t get it either, but hey, I don’t mind at all.

DH was insistent that he wear a plain silver band as his engagement ring. His logic was that if I’m wearing a ring to tell all the world I’m his, then he was going to wear a ring to tell all the world he was mine. I thought it was really sweet.

This is very sweet, love it! My DH is a silly country boy and he said he just got me an expensive ring to mark that Im taken, he wanted a pretty expensive hand gun as an engament gift. I obliged but I was like this is your engament, xmas, and bday gift. He was very happy to show it off. Its a beautiful gun and he will keep it forever and he says it will remind him of our engament. I think its pretty nice that he wanted to keep something too

I just bought my Fiance his just a couple days ago. He was very shy about telling me he wanted to wear a ring as well. He thought that I would be against the idea, but I love it! He wanted to be able to show off to everyone as well. I think it is super sweet and am excited for his ring to get in.

I have several male friends who wore engagement rings while they were engaged, some used the same band after marriage, some “upgraded”. I wanted my husband to wear one while we were engaged, but even getting him a wedding band was a nightmare! Seriously friggin’ picky man! Managed to get him to agree to a band oh, what, a week before the wedding?! Love him though. <3

My partner actually got his pre-commitment/engagement ring before mine arrived.  His showed up about three weeks before my stand-in, even though we ordered my stand-in first, and he started wearing it right away.  My permanent pre-commitment/engagement ring wasn’t ordered for another three or four months after that.

He often gets asked if he’s married (I don’t, since I’m not currently wearing my commitment ring, so I don’t have the full set on – people just assume I’m “only engaged” since there’s only one ring), or sometimes people will just assume we’re husband and wife.  Depending on the situation (random stranger vs coworker) he’ll just let them assume we’re married, or he’ll explain that we’re not.  But he’s totally fine with it, and I don’t mind either way.  It has been good for his employment, as well – men who are married are seen as more stable, and thus more employable, so when he does something like go in for a job interview, he makes sure that his ring is visible, and just doesn’t mention me, and lets them assume whatever they want.  He recently got a promotion at work.

My Fiance is jealous that I get to wear one but he doesn’t. I’ve been thinking of getting him one… maybe for Christmas
