Fiance and I tossed around ideas before we were officially engaged. I think maybe you should just be honest with him. Tell him he doesn’t need the ring for you two to be officially engaged–I’m guessing that’s his hang up since he is talking about money. If you’re good with the idea and he feels like you need a ring, you can even get a symbolic (and cheaper) ring from a pawn shop or get a small gemstone ring.

@SweetDreams23: It seems like you both have a pretty open relationship and are good at talking about things, I’m sure this will be no different. My Fiance was the same way. We constantly talked about when we would get married/engaged, but he didn’t pop the question until he had the ring, and money was a big factor — so I can kinda understand. I’m sure if you just sit him down and talk to him, you’ll feel much better afterwards.

Oh and as far as family goes right now — you can’t please everyone, make sure the 2 1/2 (1/2 for your child) are happy … and don’t worry about anyone else. You’ll drive yourself crazy that way, I know that I am.
