I was previously engaged back in 2012. My ex-fiance gave me the ring I'd been dreaming about for years. It was a 2.25 ct cushion cut with a halo and micropave band. It was absolutely perfect. Thin band so wedding band would sit flush and would fit under the stone. The perfect cushion cut that was elegant and what I'd been wanting for years. I can't even describe how happy I was for this ring.
Six months before the wedding, I found out he was cheating on me and as expected, the wedding was called off. Now two years later I'm happily in love with someone new. I am happier than I've ever been, and we knew immediately that we had found the one in each other.
We've talked about getting married, and he's told me that he wants to do something completely different from what the last one did. He told me to start looking around online to get an idea of what I'd like. Every single time I try, I end up crying. If he shows me something, I end up unable to sleep. Nothing out there looks good to me. It could be the biggest shiniest ring in the world, and I'd still feel like it wasn't me.
In my heart, I want something different, and I would say yes to him even if he presented me with a piece of string. However, I know that in the back of my mind, I'll be heartbroken about the fact that I can't have the ring I've always wanted. Am I wrong for wanting the same style ring I had before?
