I have a friend who is recently engaged, but she doesn't have an engagment ring yet. She says she doesn't like jewelry and doesn't want a ring, but would accept one if her df bought one. So I congratulated her, and I'm truly happy for her, but now she and her sister are getting into it because her sister says that you're not really engaged until you have a ring on your finger. This got me thinking. Does not having a ring make you less believable? Would you accept a proposal without a ring?

I always find that odd. The ring seals the deal IMO and is what makes the question real. It shows he put thought into it. I would not accept without, I've had boyfriends do this in the past and I ignored the question.

Yes. I don't like jewelry. I wouldn't wear it if I had one.

I didn't have a ring at my proposal. He knows I hate jewelry. The only reason I wear a cheap band now is to show I am married.

Yes because I am MARRIED and don't wear a ring. I hate jewelry, means nothing to me.

I would. I'm not materialistic and couldn't care less about stuff like that. I'd get married without a wedding band too.
Wanting to spend your life together is more than just a piece of jewelry.
Plus if she doesn't like jewelry, that's all the reason she needs.

I wouldn't have cared if my husband gave me a ring or not. I knew I wanted to marry him and that's it. It's like do you think people are lying about being married if they don't wear a wedding ring? Kwim?

Her sis is a jerk! All that count to make an engagement real is that he asked and she said yes.
