How Important Is Your Bling To Your Marriage

Recommended Posts

I am asking all of these questions because I know that the reason he has not proposed is finances. and I feel that if we got married then some of the small bill would be alliviate. Like my insurance is wonderful and he pays out the A$% for his insurance. If he went on mine it would be money to save.

 

I figure we could go to the justice of the peace or elope in St Thomas Honeymoon later. We have been together so long that it seems that nothing is going right because we are fighting finances. I dont care (at this second) about the engagement ring it can come later it just feels like it is time now. That maybe if we got married the the universe will smile on our union and things would get better.

 

Am I wrong. Should I say something.

hmm good question! what if you got a ring now that you two can afford and then later down the road you could upgrade it?

 

I would marry Joe with or without the ring, but I have to admit wearing the ring makes it more real, and i catch myself staring at it...

Ok. Well, based on the poll, I voted for what I'd do. Personally, when I was 18 I was ready to get married. I would have done it ring, or no ring. However, the reason we waited was finances. It's not about the jewelry on your hand, it's about your vows to eachother and what they mean to you.

I love my E-ring and wedding band set. But with that said, I would have married Cain with a gum ball machine ring if that's all we could afford. Just buy a plain wedding band and get married. You can always get the bling when you can afford it more.

It definitely is a guy thing. I told Reggie I didn't need an engagement ring, but he insisted. Absolutely it's a pride thing with some of them!!! pinkie.gif

I'd marry Jeff again in a heartbeat with no ring, in a courthouse by ourselves. When you're with the right person, the "material" stuff shoudn't matter. Getting married shouldn't be about how much money they spend on you, or how much money you spend on your guests, but about celebrating your love, commitment, and starting the rest of your life.

 

Sure, I absolutely LOVE my ring. Jeff went wayyyy overboard in my opinion, but he saved for almost a year to buy my ring and wanted it to be really special. We are fortunate that he was able to do that. Is it necessary? Absolutely not. But, am I glad he did? Heck yeah! I probably stare at my ring at least 5 times a day still, and I've had it for over a year...

 

Funny story, I was really good friends with the girl Jeff dated in his early twenties. They were together for over 4 years and while they talked about getting married, neither of them wanted to commit. His ex used to say that she wouldn't marry him with less than a 2 carat ring, and she was serious. He used to tell her he'd never buy anything larger than 1/2 carat, not matter who he was marrying. The irony is that once we started dating and were together about 4 months, we were talking about getting married and he wouldn't because he had to save up for this huge ring he wanted to get me...I made no demands or requests and ended up with my awesome ring from the guy who said he'd never buy one...

 

OK, sorry that ended up long!

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
