BF and I have talked about getting married for most of our relationship. A while back he told me that I don't get to have any say in the ring because it's his symbol of love to me and his way of getting to do something for me that shows me how much he cares. It's a very cute thought, but only recently did I really start thinking about this. I've always been okay with the fact that I won't get to choose my ring. BF has very good taste and is an artist so I completely trust his judgement. His fashion sense is better than mine sometimes!
The only thing I've recently been a little sad about is that I don't get to go ring shopping. I feel like that's something fun and exciting that couples [or friends] do together and it's really pointless for me to even try. I recently joked with him saying "well it's pointless for me to even look cuz I have no say in the ring!" And his response was "you're right!" It was very playfull but dang...I kind of want to have the fun of going to stores and looking at different styles, trying on rings, etc. Or, is he saving me the hassle and he's going to do all the grunt work? Ugh....Just wanted to get all of this off of my chest...that is all.
