  • It kind of sounds like you shouldn't be getting married...if you fight so much and such. Good luck, though. I had a friend that proposed to her boyfriend of 6 years. They got married and then divorced less than a year later. He felt totally pressured into it.

  • Its a sweet idea, but is it going to be like an engagement ring or a wedding band? He might feel funny wearing an engagement type ring.
    If you're really ready, buy tickets to Vegas for his Christmas present. ;)

  • I like the idea too. I especially like that you are not rushing, but giving it a time factor. If things are going good like you say, maybe it was good that you both waited and maybe you ARE ready now.

  • No im just going to buy his wedding band and I dont expect him to wear it till we are married.... I thought of the Vegas tickets too but I am having a baby in Janurary and I wanted to wait at least a few months after baby thats Y I was just gonna buy the band for him.... And plus this is his first marriage and its really important to him to have a wedding with all his family there...

  • You know your man better than any one here...and if you feel good about it then I think it is a wonderful idea.
