OP...I really didn't mean to steal your post. You do whatever works for you and your fiance and forget what all others say.

Actually it does.

Why does the man have to purpose? My SO wanted to purpose a long time before he did. He knew he wanted to marry me not long into the relationship. If I had purposed it would not have een a big deal. Most relationships now a days talk about getting married long before someone purposes so I don't see a big deal. Traditional is getting old. There is nothing wrong with a girl purposing and it doesn't maker her desperate.

Yeah ok! Lmao!





Quoting LadySlimm:

No...I had told him before that I never wanted to get married to him because of what happened in my first marriage and I just didn't see the point in getting married.



Well I changed my mind, saw that I can't make decisions based on the past, and decided I wanted to get married, so I proposed.



Not desperate at all.

I proposed to my DF, so I bought myself a ring and am buying the bands, too. My engagement ring is being shipped to me as we speak :-)

Ok and he will pay for the divorce too!

Quoting LadySlimm:

Wtf is your problem? Not enough love in your life? I just told my personal story. But I don't have to justify anything to you. It is what is working for me and DF and that is all that matters. Oh..and HE is buying the marriage license and HE picked the date.

My dh and I bought our rings together. We paid for them together. He mostly paid for them but I contributed. He proposed. What's the big deal?

Do you even know how ignorant you sound? I am done with you, you obviously aren't smart enough to comprehend my story. Maybe you should go to bed before you give yourself a migraine trying to read.

If you had the money at the time and he didn't, what is wrong with buying your own rings? He still proposed to you (not that there's anything wrong with it if you had proposed, I'm just saying that obviously he has shown that he wants to get married). I wouldn't wait for him to save up the money either. Honestly, if my husband and I had both lacked funds at the time he proposed I would have worn a ring from a gumball machine.

My husband bought my rings, but I picked out my own so I could try a few different ones on. If I'm wearing it for the rest of my life it may as well look good on my hand. They look great and they didn't cost $6000 either.

So if the man doesn't want a long term relationship he won't purpose? It doesn't work that way. It's no longer the 1950's. you can leave your kitchen and be an actual person now
