My boyfriend and I have talked about getting promise rings. We've been together a year now and it doesn't seem like we are going to break up anytime soon. 


I looked on Amazon for promise rings and I found a few I like. Which do you like?


Option 1... Footprints


Option 2... Heartbeat


Option 3... Lock and Key


Option 4... Love


Option 5... Me and you


Option 6... You make me happy everyday

If you can afford them do it. Seems like a waste of money.

I like 3,4 & 6. Although, I find it odd when adults get promise rings. Reminds me of high school. Why not just get engaged? Unless you don't plan on actually marrying ever but want a symbol of your commitment. Then I guess promise rings would make sense.

We haven't quite decided if we want to get married or not but we want something to show that we are committed to each other. We're only almost 19 and 20 years old.

Those all look like wedding bands not promise rings... when I think of a promise ring I think of a promise to marry or pre-engagement ring.

Waste of money at your age. Commit or not. You shouldn't need a symbol.

I am sorry, but promise rings are silly and childish. You are adults, you are a mother. You are either engaged to be married or you are not. 

Forget the rings until you have actually decided to get married.

I agree, lol.  I got a promise ring at 16.  Knew we would NEVER work out but it was a decent ring.  As adults it is all or nothing.  Engaged or not.

I like Option 4 and 6.   I disagree with those who think it is silly or childish.    While it is not something I would do, if you want to do it, have at it.  It is your life and your money and if it is what makes you and your boyfriend happy, go for it.  She asked for opinions on the ring, not on whether or not she should even get one.
