My SO talks about living together and being married yet he has mentioned multiple tomes how he thinks thatIn expensive engagement rings are a waste of money. 🙁 Which wouldn’t bother me much, I’m not a big jewelry fan and I don’t want a diamond, but this is a man who spends hundreds on watches that he can change daily. This is a ring I would be wearing always!

Talking about all the expensive things he will be buying in the next year ($60k car, fancy dining table/chairs, landscaping), and then when I mention rings/engagement he looks at me and goes “I’m not made of money, you know”…and I picked a $5500 ring! It’s not like I picked a $20k tiffany to match the new infiniti QX he wants!! :p

This isn’t a habit, but the other day he said something that made me want to strangle him! He’s really unexcited about marriage, says he’s already committed for life, etc. although when I explained how important it is to me, he said we should get married before we move to the US together in 2-3 years.
He’s Canadian, I’m a US citizen. So the other day I mentioned that he could get a US green card if we married and he super excitedly responded “Wow! Will you marry me?”

@oangeo: Boooo! In my case, our plan is for me to find a job near his place & move in. I’ll contribute a little to make up the difference in bills, but he’ll continue to pay rent and the vast majority of my income will go to the wedding fund. Sooo…. essentially **I** am going to pay for a wedding that I’m SURE will be WAAAAY more expensive than a ring. 😛 No excuses. Suck it up and buy it! (I’m so glad I have Weddingbee where I can say things I’d NEVER say to him!)

Honestly, there aren’t any. We have a timeline (proposal’s coming sometime this fall, before Thanksgiving so I can meet his extended family as the fiancé) and he’s the one who brought up marriage first, so I guess perhaps I’m the one who’s annoying – I think I tend to talk about weddings too much and it annoys him. But he knows I just love the planning aspect and I think he’s secretly pleased I already have most of the plans worked out in my head so he won’t have to xD

@RedPanda24: I’ve had similar from my SO!
“Nothing will change our relationship because of it, except being legally recognised”
“Why not get on with it then?”
“Because I want it to be special and a surprise”

My ring has already been purchased and is currently getting resized and having my stone set. He picks it up next week. So now his faaavorite thing in the world is to mess with me saying “It could be the day it comes in, it could be a year from now, you’ll never know, and I’m not telling.” It’s going to kill me.

Annoying habit related to waiting… Well, (he won’t admit this) he enjoys watching Four Weddings, for the competition, and he’ll comment on other weddings, and always add “we’re not gonna have that at our wedding, right?” But when I comment, I always get a “you know I’m not in a financial place to propose. After todo, then we’ll talk” but it’s sometimes the exact same thing!

We’re doing a custom ring that I’m picking out, so I’ll know the general time frame of when it will be done, just don’t know when he’ll actually ask.
He thinks it would be really funny to do fake-out proposals in that time just to mess with me. Got the idea from The Office, when Jim does that to Pam. I told him he had better not, but he loves to tease about it.

We’re getting married soon, but his FORMER worst habit was calling me his “almost fiancee” or “pre-fiancee.” Nuh uh. Nope. Put a ring on it!

@Kit_Kath: Mine also did this too! He did it with a tie clip box.

Haha I keep being annoying and telling SO he has x weeks/months to propose or I will say no (which I won’t). He tells me he will present me with the ring a day or two before the wedding (we have a date, although we don’t know the city/venue/anything) and I tell him well there will be no day or two before the wedding if he doesn’t propose!!
He also tells me he will get the diamond from a family friend and that it takes so much time to get the ring/plan the proposal. I’m going to start telling him we need 10 times as much time to plan the wedding than the proposal!
He is going out of town for 3 months this summer so I think it will happen before then but he says, well u can visit me and if I did it then, wouldn’t it be so cute/romantic?
I’m like NO! I want that ring on my finger ASAP haha.
