You need to not stress so much about when it happens. I know, easy to say when you have the bling, but it's true. All this time you are stressing about when it will happen is time you aren't focusing on the actual relationship and how great it is. Just step back, say "I have an amazing man who loves me and isn't going anywhere", and let go. Once you do that, the proposal will come.
I also voted to wait... Kate said it very well above.
Sounds like you also want to talk to him about finances if they are bothering him, but maybe with the end to figure out if that is why there is no bling yet...
Maybe that's not the case, but don't you want to be surprised when it does happen? It will be very special ...
I would do it without a ring, but I would still want him to ask me.
Hang in there Catherine!
