I have to disagree with the ones that say its dumb meaning its saying "Im going to marry you someday but not yet because I cant afford a real engagement ring yet" I have a promise ring that I wear everyday. Im a hopeless romantic && knowing that even though we havent made it official yet i have this little reminder that he loves me && does plan on making me his wife when he finishes school && we get everything planned, its a sign of things to come. When I look at it i know that it was bought with the sweetest of intentions and if Im having a bad day it makes me think of him, just knowing that it is a symbol of our early time together leading up to when we actually will get engaged makes me happy. Its a personal choice for each couple but I think its a symbol && i like it =)

I believe that promise rings shows your commitment to each other. I would wear mine with pride!! Congratulations.

Generally speaking I haven't been a big fan of the idea of having a promise ring. You are either committed to someone, or you're not. There are thousands of people who get engaged to each other every day-who actually do it without a ring. The object itself is silly. It's all about the bond and relationship to each other, not so much an object.

Once you actually get engaged or get married, now having a ring at that point, has a totally different meaning, but you should not be wearing something on your finger, to help you keep things together until you are ready to officialize that commitment.

I think promise rings are a cute, inexpensive gift for teenage couples and have no real place outside of that.

For a couple that are in their early twenties, in my opinion, it's kinda tacky. That doesn't mean you need to rush to get an engagement ring, but I personally would prefer to wait for the real deal and would be very upset if my boyfriend offered me a promise ring. I am a little older though at 25.

One story of young couples comes to mind though..my best friend has been married since she was 19 ( 25 now ) and they have a good marriage but the first 3 years were really rough. She says if she had it to do over again, she would definitely marry him, but would have waited because their youth and finances really put a lot of stress on them once the fun and excitement of the wedding was over. It almost split them up.

Just thought I would update you all, me and my bf have been dating for 2 1/2 years now and he has given me two promise rings and I have trashed both of them throughout the years cause one of them turned my finger green and the first one I lost but then found but then threw it away cause he pissed me off when I found out he was looking at porn (which we are still working on and I haven't trusted him for a year and a half now thanks to that trash).

I think it depends on what it means to you. My boyfriend recently gave me a promise ring and to us and our families,it means that we are engaged but not financially ready to get married. We will get married once we finish school and when we are more financially able,he will get me a diamond engagement/wedding ring. To us, our promise rings hold the same weight and commitment as engagement rings, we just aren't officially planning yet.

always and forever<3

I personally agree with others im not fond of the whole promise ring my FH gave me one after a year of dating because he couldn't afford an engagement ring now that he finish school and has his dream job he wants to now buy me a bridal set because we had a date set for next june of 2012 but we recently had a beautiful baby boy last Dec. and we are relocating so we want to get married this year so now i haveto cram in wedding plans for a shorter period enough of me already but If thats all your man can afford then you can't really get to upset with him because atleast you got an ring some women are still waiting for even a promise ring!

I think you are a little bit younger for getting married, and its a really nice and romantic gestoure to have a promise ring like you and your bf
