I'm new to the site/board so I thought I'd say hello. About a week ago my BF told me that over the holidays my sister had let him know my father wants to give him my mother's ring. It's a little weird because my parents are divorced but I know that the only reason he hasn't proposed thus far (we'll have been together 5 years this month) is because he hasn't been able to afford a ring. So I'm very excited! Plus he's supposed to propose at the end of the month! (a little laugh - he told his mom he's gonna propose & she said "does heather know?" haha)
Also, I'd like to say the people on this site seem to be a whole lot nicer than on others (theknot.com). Over there if you say you're not engaged yet and ask a question or post a situation they tell ya to grow up among other things!! They act like it you don't have a ring on your finger then you have no business even thinking about a wedding, let alone just looking around at things/ideas or asking questions! So thanks!
