    This has got me thinking lately. When I get married I don't plan on wearing a ring. I don't see what it symbolises. Maybe it's because I'm from East Africa and it's not in our culture. So it got me thinking girls or guys if your OH proposed but said either they didn't want you wearing one or that they did not want one would if change anything for you?

    ps- if my OH wanted one I wouldn't say no to getting them one.

    I like gold but don't really care all that much for jewellery. She and her parents can buy me something else besides a ring and it better be darn expensive or I will definitely reject and then dump her.

    He could propose without one but I'm damn well getting a giant diamond at some stage.

    It would suggest that my OH knew me well enough to know that I'm not impressed by lumps of metal/minerals.

    If he doesn't give me an actual ring can I at least have a haribo one?

    On a serious note, I don't think I'd mind not having a ring if he didn't make a point of not getting me one. If it's some principal about me not having rings then I'd probably be annoyed.

    It wouldn't bother me. A lot of couples I know didn't even buy the ring until the proposal was accepted, I assumed that was fairly normal.

    The ring symbolises that love is eternal, it has no beginning and no end. I would like a ring, doesn't have to be a diamond or anything like that. A simple one would do.
    If it was without a ring I don't know, it'd have to depend on the circumstances e.g. he can't afford it or whatever.

    I think I'd find it a bit odd if they proposed and actually said they didn't want me wearing a ring...
    But yeah, I like the idea of a ring being like a symbol, but it wouldn't really bother me if they proposed without one

    Girls are like children they're enamoured by shiny objects. This is why some girls even force their partners to go ring shopping before the big question has been popped.

    My partner proposed to me without a ring because he knows I'm not really fond of jewellery so he let me choose it a few days later instead. I preferred that tbh.

      If I was with someone who would refuse to marry me based solely on the fact that I didn't have a ring there and then they can **** off. I don't want to marry them

      If they said they did not want to wear one. Would that make any difference to you?
