    @eeerika22:  My man doesn’t wear rings, but he will once we’re married. I don’t think he’s ready for that ring yet! So at least in my relationship, it wouldn’t really be a good gift. Save that money for his dream wedding band 🙂

    SO and I have discussed him wearing a band throughout engagement. It’s still undecided but if he wants it we have it. I would like him to decide to wear it, but it’s up to him.

    Given that I don’t really get the concept of a pre engagement ring, I guess I wouldn’t.

    @eeerika22:  ehh it’s different because he might feel others would think he was trying to come across as married already? 

    I saw in another post that you said “he never wanted it to leave your finger” so it sounds like (I don’t mean this as an insult) that he sees engagement and marriage as a sort of sign of “ownership”. Since that is a very traditional view I would guess since it’s untraditional for a man to wear a ring prior to wedding he might not want to.

    It just seems like an unnecessary step.  When he’s ready to be engaged, it will happen.  It seems a bit…forced maybe?

    My Fiance used to say he “wasn’t into rings” … but after we got engaged and bought his wedding band he won’t stop talking about getting to wear it in a few weeks. 

    That being said, I think this is the nice way a guy goes about saying he’s just not ready!!
