Texas- relax. Its okay. You certainly havent "caused anything" on here, except for some good reading. I think some of us are just slightly baffled by your story , thats all. Sounds like the two of you are in love and want to get married. So do it! As long as you can both provide for yourselves and each other and his mom isnt part of that equation, than it doesnt matter what she thinks, right? As far as the ring goes, I guess youll learn your lesson next time. Maybe you two can go shopping together and pick out something inexpensive that he can put on your finger immediatley so that horrible woman cant STEAL it again.
