I didn’t give him a ring, but after he proposed to me, I gave him a Dark Crystal board game which I was planning to give him for Valentine’s Day anyways

My husband’s engagemet ring became his wedding ring.  In my culture both men and women wear rings Also, I think it’s not fair that one gender is taken and the other is loose. In some cultures, people wear the enagement rings on the right hand and transfer them to the left once they are married.

odaile1 :  This is exactly what we have done. When we went to pick my engagement ring, we picked out his wedding ring which he uses as an engagement ring on his right hand. When we get married he will move it over to his left hand. He loves to wear it, and I love that he does too. it’s very special when the man also wears an engagement ring.

bakerbee09 :  

I actually bought my boyfriend (he hasn’t proposed yet) his engagement ring before he bought mine. 😛 He plans on wearing it on his right hand and on our wedding day, switching it from his right to his left hand. 

Though, I plan on wearinbg my engagement ring (that he has now purchased) on my left hand the whole time. 

I have a good idea of the timeline he intends on proposing (its going to be within the next month). So I’m going to carry his ring with me everywhere we go so I could give him his when he gives me mine. 

I actually really wanted to propose to him, and when I brought it up, he was not too keen on that idea. So my current plan is compromise that he is not aware of kiss

I gave my fiance a nice watch with the date and city he proposed engraved on the back.  He loved it!
