Hi all. After some advice/insight!
I am wondering if what my partner and I are doing is against etiquette /frowned upon?
We are pretty much engaged but are wanting to announce it once we buy an engagement ring (he wants to buy something shiny to make it "offical" even though I pointed out to him at the end of the day it is not the ring that defines the relationship, it's the couple...).
As of this we have been doing some research and have narrowed it down to two choices, contacted a local business and received quotes and lead times. My partner has been giving input (one of the final two was his choice, just have to make a final decision once the CAD renders are finished).
Should I be passing the buck here and staying out of the process? Or is it okay that I am involved with the purchasing of the ring and communicating with the supplier?
Nb: we live together and share a bank account so it is going to be a joint purchase so it's not like it is supposed to be a surprise.
Any insight and comments are appreciated!
