Pretty sure I'm gonna marry him... ☮Hippie Jesus☮ 2 kids; West Virginia 10560 posts

I love him to bits! We seem to be so compatible and he has been a terrific presence in my son's life since his father and I divorced.



We've talked about getting married. He even asked me the other day if I still wanted to marry him. Of course, duh! We first started mentioning marriage shortly after I became pregnant. But I said that I didn't want to get married WHILE I'm pregnant. Anytime after, absolutely. :)



BUT... I want a ring. Dammit. It doesn't have to be big and fancy, just a pretty little diamond that he picked out just for me. But still no ring and no sign of one either. :(



Ah well, maybe one day! Of course I'd still marry him without it... But it would be nice, yeah? We've both been married before, so I don't know if that changes things or not. But meh, either way I love him and I would never ask for that from him. If he wants to, then I guess he will. If he doesn't, then I guess I'll still marry the goober, but a ring would be sweet.

Just give me his first name and phone number and I'll pass along the hint. :wink:



Seriously, though, I do wish sometimes there was somebody that could advocate for us when we wish our men would do something and without outright telling them we want it, they would never know it. It ruins the surprise/thoughtfulness if you say something about wanting it!

I'm lucky enough to have this! My best friend and my boyfriend are close friends and she always finds a nonchalant way of bringing things like that up :P

Maybe he thinks since you don't want to get married until after baby that he shouldn't buy a ring just yet. I'd find a clever way to hint around to it... like have a friend post a cute ring on facebook and be like "oh wow look at this ring isn't it beautiful?" That way you're not going to a website looking at rings specifically ;) He should get the hint!

I don't think it is so much that a guy doesn't get the hint. A lot of it is that they are nervous to get the ring in the first place. They want to get "the right one". no man wants to buy the wrong ring and have his love disapointed or have to "upgrade" later. It is like the whole "real wedding" syndrome. Get married in a rush and plan a big wedding later. Makes no sense to that man. Men are more "practical" then women. We are emotional thinkers. Well, not so much me. I tend to think about practicality. lol My husband is more of an impulse and emotional thinker/ pruchaser. I can prove it by opening up my jewelry box. Hell, there is the ugliest pair of earings in there that he bought me as our prewedding gift. He gave them to me infront of all our guests at our rehersal dinner. UGH! lol I smiled and pretended to love them so very much. I wore
