    @abbyful:  Agreed. I flat out told my SO not to even consider buying me a promise/pre-engagement ring. What’s the point? Save the money for the real thing! His mom apparently pushes them on the boys to buy them.

    umm yeah if Fi had given me a promise ring he would have gotten major sideeye. I personally wouldn’t want one.

    I’ve never actually known anyone IRL that has ever had one. I always thought a promise ring was something a teenage girl’s parents gave her to wear as promise that she would save her virginity for marriage… or maybe I’m thinking of another type of ring, who knows. So needless to say I would have been pretty confused by getting one from a boyfriend, especially in my twenties. I don’t look down on them or think they’re fake engagement rings though. Either way, it’s a great excuse for new bling! 🙂

    @CaptainSpaulding:  I think you are confusing it with a “purity ring”…something I saw a lot of people wear in high school, usually they said “true love waits” or something?

    I had a promise ring from a high school boyfriend, but didnt really know it was a promise ring. He got it for me and gave it to me on the beach, it was a really big deal at the time to him but I really had no idea that it was a promise ring/what that meant. We broke up three years later!

    My ex husband bought me a promise ring at 9 months into the relationship and he was 19 and I was 21years old. (we got married 2 and a half years later, then he had an affair)

    My current husband just straight up asked me marry him at 10 months into the relationship..got married 12 months later..lol…but we were a little older…. he was 25 and I was 27years old. Promise ring not needed..lol
