He only had it for two weeks, but he waited because he wanted it to be a surprise when he (finally) did propose. It felt like forever, though!

I don’t think he waited that long, but I’m not sure exactly how long he had the ring.

He wanted to be out of our parents’ homes and living together. The proposal came 3 months after that.

He waited an extra year to propose because his sister got engaged and she had to have her pretty pincess time. Ugh. 

When he finally bought the ring, he waited 2 weeks. One for it to come in and another week because he wanted it to be a certain day.

For my DH it was definately the money because he proposed a month after he made his last car payment. 🙂 

He says my ring is his new car payment. hehe

My FH bought my ring 8 months before proposing. He had found the perfect ring but wanted to wait for our 4 year anniversary to propose. It was in our house the whole time so good thing I never came across it–that would of been a tough secret to keep! 🙂

O lord I would die if I knew my Fiance had the ring and then kept it for the “perfect” moment.  I get wanting a special proposal but isn’t the proposal special enough?  I want the commitment, not the “perfect” proposal.  But more power to the women who didn’t explode while waiting lol.
