Commitment Rings

Has anybody else bought their h2b a commitment ring? A kind of engagement ring for men?

I bought my h2b one for his birthday and he absolutely loves it, wears it on the ring finger and everything. I love it cos it makes him look like a married man already haha!



  • No i havent, but i have heard of them.

    Have you realised how many people dont wear wedding rings. I was in the pub near my parents house on the w/e and alot of the men there that i knew were married werent wearing wedding rings. I mentioned this and they said it wasnt the done thing back then - they were my parents age. I wonder when it did become the 'done' thing, and thank god it did!

    I know, some young men dont wear them nowadays either, my mate got married a few months ago and he never wears his ring. i think its a bit sly really, like announcing that your still singe, when your not! cheeky devils. im getting mine in the habit from the off!!

    My h2b does not like wearing rings full stop. Mine you he is a builder,so its a bit impractical. He's still having a ring, but he said he'd rather wear it on his chain.

    I know some friends who have got married recently and have chose not to wear rings...either they dont want a ring as they dont want to wear any jewellery or that they just didnt want one. I have told h2b whether he likes it or not he will be wearing a ring! In my eyes as I think they should be proud to wear a ring and show that they are married. Whereas if he doesn't wear one ladies may try to flirt with him thinking he is still single!!

    I only heard of commitments rings a couple of yrs ago when my friend got married and her husband wore an emgagement ring.

    still, even thou i would like to have us wearing a pair of wedding rings, i dont really see that i would either since i'm working with kids and getting dirty everytime.

    but i think he sits on his bottom everyday in an office....HE SHOULD WEAR ONE!

    When my parents got married (1971), my dad was the first of his friends and our family to wear a wedding ring. So I think it must have been around that time that they became the norm. Of my friends who have got married lately, only one man is not wearing a wedding ring as he says he doesn't like jewellery. I am really looking forward to H2B wearing a ring. We chose them last month, and they should be ready to collect quite soon. I will be so proud to see him wearing his ring as the only jewellery he wears is a watch. BTW - I also love looking at my dad's ring. After it being on his finger for 35 years (he doesn't take it off for anything - actually I wonder whether he would be able to get it off now), the originally shiny yellow gold is now really scuffed and I look at it and see that it symbolises all that my parents have experienced in their married lives and that makes me really happy.
