    Promise Rings...for guys??

    Advertisements
    I had never heard of this before, but my little brothers best friend (confusing right) well his girlfriend bought him a ring to wear on his wedding ring finger (they are not married-she just gradutated high school in may)...It is somewhat of a promise ring. She has one from him as well...I have never heard of this, have any of you done this for your SO or known anyone else to do it?

    I have heard of mangagement rings and to be honest I am not a fan of them. I like the traditional way where man give a woman a ring until they are married and then he gets the ring. So as far as a man promise ring...I feel the same way

    DH got me a promise ring for my 16th birthday. A couple years later, he started wanting one and asked me to get him one. I was pretty surprised because I thought they were usually for girls (like engagement rings). I thought it was a little weird, and hadn't heard of it before then. But he wanted to show everyone he was commited like that too, especially when I wasn't with him. So I got him one-it was a plain white gold band (what he wanted). He wore it for a couple years until we got married and he replaced it with his wedding band. Honestly, I had forgotten about this until you brought it up cuz he doesn't wear it anymore.

    My sister and her now husband, got him one before they got married. Some time after they had gotten engaged he asked her for one also...at first we thought it was weird, but I think it's fine if they want to show their commitment whats wrong with that?

    I didn't say there was anything wrong with it...I had just never heard of such a thing and was asking for others experiences or opinions.

    I've heard of people doing that before but I haven't. I kinda want to though. I wonder if he'd like it!

    Oh, Im sorry, I wasn't trying to insinuate you thought there was something wrong with it. I was meaning that our family thought it was very odd to begin with, but after awhile we didn't think there was anything wrong with it.
