    We’ve lived together for two years but haven’t joined accounts.  I don’t really see us changing that after we get married either.  So . . . Fiance paid for mine, he bought it when he bought the engagement ring.  He told me he feels wierd paying for his own band so I told him I would cover that.

    We’ll be buying our bands in the next few weeks but our money is “our money” so we are buying them together.

    I paid for my own ring and he paid for his. but this was mostly due to convenience – I was alone when I picked up my ring. I wasn’t going to drag him all the way to the store after the ring had been picked out.

    like the PPs said: joint account. once you get married, his money is your money and vice versa, so does it really matter?

    We plan on getting a joint account soon, but haven’t done it yet. I felt bad that mine was so much more expensive than FI’s so I offered to pay for his plus half of mine. Mine is going to be $700 and his is only $50 so I’m paying $400 and he is paying $350.

    The money came out of our ‘wedding money’.

    I paid for both of our bands, but that was my insistence because he gave me such a beautiful engagement ring.  I think he was fine with contributing either way.  Even though our bank accounts were separate at the time, we pretty much shared costs.  And now we’re combined so it’s pretty much we paid for it together 🙂

    We are thinking of getting them for each other’s birthday presents.  Our Birthdays are 17 days apart so we would both be getting them around the same time.

    I paid for his and he paid for mine.  Although, originally I kind of expected him to pay for both since my grandmother gave me my e-ring.  LOL, oh well.

    He bought my rings as a set plus the center stone, so I will be paying for his wedding band.

    I paid for ours, but I don’t see it as “my” money. Fiance and I have pretty much combined finances, so even though it’s coming out of my bank account, he’s taking care of some of the furniture/household items that we’re going to need for our new house.

    My ring came as a set so I paid for his. He wanted to pay for his own but I told him no. I also told him he couldn’t pick it out, but he said no to that too, so we looked together. 🙂

    We bought them together. Picked them out together and we used our joint bank account to pay for them. We joked about whose check paid for them but that is how was are. We have never had seperate bank accounts (he had just moved back down here from Chicago when we met…so he needed a bank down here to do his checks)…after 4 months of being together we opened one together!
